Britain’s Prince Charles of Wales drank three cups of Arabian coffee one after another during his visit to Saudi Arabia last week and told his guests he loved that coffee.

“When I learned that the Prince is coming to visit us, I gathered my aides and started preparations to make the best Arabian coffee for him,” said Mufdi Ayed, who has been working as a coffee maker at the government house in the northwestern Al-Ula town.

“When he arrived in the place where he stayed, we welcomed him with Arabian coffee. He sipped the first one and asked for a second cup.

“He drank it and asked for a third one. He then told Prince Sultan bin Salman bin Abdul Aziz that he likes to drink Arabian coffee for its distinguished taste,” he told ‘Sabq’ newspaper.
