The Narrative: A Dallah is a traditional Arabic coffee pot used for centuries to brew and serve Qahwa, an Arabic coffee or Gulf coffee made through a multi-step ritual, and Khaleeji, a spicy, bitter coffee traditionally served during feasts like Eid al-Fitr. It is commonly used in the coffee tradition of the Arabian Peninsula and of the Bedouins. Old Bedouins used the ritual of coffee preparation, serving and drinking as a sign of hospitality, generosity and wealth. In much of the Middle East, it is still connected to socializing with friends, family and business partners, so it is typically present in the main rites of passage, such as births, marriages and funerals and some business meetings.
