Why Is Coffee Served With Water?

When it comes to coffee traditions, not many people know the answers to pretty simple questions. In movies and near coffee shops, we see people drinking a #coffee with water. However, only a few can provide information about the origins of this tradition.

This tradition is believed to have first appeared in ancient Greece. Historians claim that Turkish-brewed coffee was first served with cold water. Such a "gesture" was made so that the coffee drinker had the opportunity to cool off and refresh himself.

An interesting fact: Turks themselves became interested in this coffee tradition after a while. 10 years later, they started serving hot drinks with a glass of cold water in Turkey. Much later, the tradition spread to Europe. Traditionally, this situation started from Vienna. Therefore, it was Viennese coffee that began to be served with cold water.

It is no less interesting that coffee served with water in the South and in Europe is drunk a little differently. Residents of the European continent prefer to alternately sip either hot coffee or cold water. But in the south, they drink water after the glass is empty with a scented beverage.

What effect does the combination of coffee and water have:
