There’s a Romanian superstition that if you spill coffee you’ll receive money. We think it’s a shame to waste even one delicious drop of Dancing Moon Coffee -- but if it happens at least you might get a little reward.
It’s said that bubbles in the middle of your coffee cup foretells bad weather while bubbles around the rim means it will be a beautiful day. There is some science behind this. High atmospheric pressure can push bubbles in a liquid to the edge of the container.
Bubbles in your coffee are also supposed to be good luck-- especially if you catch them with your spoon and eat them. And, of course, bubbles are very low in calories.
It’s bad luck to stir coffee with a fork or a knife.
In Turkey they believe that if a very young boy drinks coffee he will never be able to grow a moustache. Just think of all the money you could save on shaving cream.
If you put some coffee and a piece of bread under the house it will scare away witches and ghosts. Something to remember next Halloween.
Pope Clement VIII was pressured by his advisors to declare coffee “the bitter invention of Satan.” But after tasting it he supposedly said “This Devil’s drink is so delicious, we should cheat the Devil by baptizing it.”
In 17th century Finland, coffee was sold at pharmacies. The Finns believed that the drink would cure headaches and dizziness and that it would also make the blood thinner. Today, there are many important health benefits associated with drinking coffee.
THE LEGEND OF
THE DANCING MOON
We invite you to celebrate
such timeless friendships
with someone you love
and a delicious cup of
Dancing Moon Coffee.
Many ages ago before there was anyone to count the passing time, the Sun and the Moon had a terrible argument. They had always lived together in perfect harmony, but one day the proud Sun became jealous of the Moon’s great beauty. So they decided to separate and divide time into two parts. This made the Sun very happy. But the Moon was very sad. Then one morning, just as the Sun was waking up, a big dark cloud covered his face. For a few brief moments the Sun and the Moon were together again in the sky. The Moon was so happy some people said it did a little dance. The Sun didn’t want to admit it, but he was happy too. So ever since that time they decided to be together twice a day. And sometimes, if you look at just the right moment, you’ll see that it seems the Moon is still dancing.
