Dubai, UAE, 8 February 2018: The Official Store of Emirates, which flies daily from Lusaka and Harare to Dubai, has launched a limited edition Arabic coffee cup collection in collaboration with Silsal. The Silsal for Emirates collection of six Arabic fine porcelain coffee cups are adorned with the word ‘Al Emarat’ (which means Emirates in Arabic), written in the ancient ‘Diwani’ calligraphic script. The flowing Arabic letters are surrounded by bold brushstrokes, beautiful glyphs, and playful splashes of paint to give them a modern edge. In addition, the designs incorporate the airline’s trademark color palette of red and black.

Qahwa, or Arabic coffee, is an important aspect of hospitality across the region and is considered a ceremonial act of generosity. Throughout the region, coffee plays a major role in nearly every aspect of the local culture, served during almost every occasion. The drink has even played a part in Bedouin poetry and music, which are often about the serving of coffee to visitors as a sign of welcome.
