Avec la présence du maître soufi, Cheikh Abd El Hafîd Benchouk, directeur de la Maison Soufie, Co-fondateur du Festival Soufi de Paris et auteur du livre "Le langage du cœur".Ce partage se déroulera au sein du festival Swiss Coffee Connection à Lausanne, en Suisse. L'art du Café ottoman, c'est l'art du partage... c'est aussi l'art de savoir donner le temps ...A la différence de la rapidité de l’espresso italien avalé en quelques gorgées, la longue dégustation du café à la turque, qu’on boit en inclinant délicatement la tasse invite à la lenteur et la délectation des sens.Le cœur bercé par la musique du groupe Dervish Spirit et l’intervention du Cheikh Abd El Hafîd Benchouk, nous plongerons au cœur d’une cérémonie qui révèle le sacré au cœur de la tradition du café. « Le café est noir mais il blanchit le cœur, en gardant 40 ans de souvenirs en lui. » - Proverbe turcA very special invitation to travel through sacred coffee rituals with honored guests from Paris will join us both days of the festival at 3pm for a dervish coffee discovery through music and truly #slowcoffee !______#traditionalcoffee #coffeeceremony #suisseromande #thelausanneguide ##lausanne #lausannecity #specialtycoffeeroaster ...
