8. While sampling our famous ice cream, I'm sure you would like a scrumptious cup of warm, rich coffee, popular throughout Middle Eastern and North African countries. We've given ours a special name: "Arabia's Ankara Coffee," and drinking it will remind you of "The Book of 1001 Nights" and other exotic tales of the Middle East. But can you name the country whose capital is Ankara? Hint
