Ottoman officials feared that during socialization people were questioning the local government and doctrines
Coffee increased its popularity as other countries began taking notice of this new drink. With time the coffee laws were abolished and the popularity of coffee continued to rise. Today, Turkish coffee houses are once again popular social gathering areas, and the serving of coffee is as much a part of Turkish life as it ever was.
