Now this sort of thing is what makes HP so awesome! I can learn about all sorts of cool stuff that I don't see anywhere else. I had no idea about coffee being used as anything other the a hot or iced drink i'm used to.

What I am wondering is what old school dokha was like back when it was used by Ottoman sailors? I assume that it was rather different since it seems everything else was.
