Iced Coffee – So who invented it?
We are told that the first versions of iced coffee, then named 'Mazagran', made their appearance in Algeria around the year 1840 during the battle of Mazagran (pronounced Masagran). During this battle, the French were fighting the Arab and Berber military over Algeria, it took 17 years and during this time milk became scarce, so the soldiers took to adding water to their coffee as a substitute for milk and even drank it as a ‘pick-me-up’ most refreshing cold. Upon returning to France, they brought their new recipe home with them to the local cafés and named it ‘café mazagran’.
The meaning of Sawubona...
This Zulu greeting, literally means “I see you.” More than words of politeness, sawubona carries the importance of recognising the worth and dignity of each person. It says, “I see the whole of you—your experiences, your passions, your pain, your strengths and weaknesses, and your future. You are valuable to me.”
Sawubona is also infused with the belief that when others “see” me, then I exist. The common response is “Shiboka”, which means “I exist for you”. These are more than greetings. They’re ways to vitalise the other person by giving full attention and presence, communicating how much value they carry within them.
Sawubona. We see you.
May we have the gift to see more clearly together in the years to come.
