(ANSA) - Ankara, November 9 - Turkey is applying to have its famous coffee added to the UNESCO register of Intangible Cultural Heritage, local media reported Friday. According to the Andolu agency, the culture ministry is preparing an official petition to the Paris-based agency to recognize Turkish coffee - a thick, black brew prepared without filtering the grounds and enjoyed with sugar - as "a living expression" of the country's heritage. The petition also includes a request for special recognition of Mesir Macunu, a medicinal paste made from plants and spices, common in the city Manisa.
