Coffee is served with sugar, but in the country side some people use salt. Milk is not usually put in the coffee. Coffee can be served along with popcorn or peanuts. Popcorn being the popular one. In some households the coffee ceremony is conducted three times a day. One during breakfast time, one at lunch, and one at dinner. The coffee ceremony allows people to catch up on current events as well as spend time with their friends and families.  If you are invited to the coffee it is impolite to leave before finishing three rounds.
