Iranian Starbucks!

Ok, not real Starbucks (but as usual Iranians don't mind pilfering the logo!).  Coffee shops are becoming popular meeting places for the young and hip.  The Christian area of Julfa has many coffee shops since the Armenian population is partial to coffee (unlike most Iranians, who prefer tea).  We stopped in to a coffee shop in this area and had delightful cappuccinos.  The cost was equivalent to an American Starbucks--about $5 per cup.  That would be like an American paying $15 a cup!

Even though I'm not a big coffee drinker, after many days of Iranian-style tea, I was craving a little variety.  Iranian coffee didn't disappoint!  My sister-in-law enjoying her cappuccino:
