Over the years, many countries in the Middle East have developed new and interesting ways of brewing and preparing their coffee. Arabic coffee is one of the most popular ways to drink coffee on the planet, accounting for at least three-fifths of the coffee consumed around the world. It's also a great way to start the day as you can get your caffeine fix without consuming any calories or fat; in fact, it also contains a modicum of protein!
If you are looking for a great breakfast joint in Dubai to start the day, make sure you check out these establishments which serve and deliver fresh Arabic-style coffee straight to your door.
