Hala everyone and welcome back to "Arabic Pick". In this week, the Arabic word/phrase is...
Arabicfinjal
English:  a small cup without a handle made especially for Arabic gahwa (coffee)
Example:

Jino:  Why do you prefer to sip your coffee from that tiny cup?
Mimi:  A gahwa is not Arabic coffee without finjal ... what else would you drink it from!


P.S. I have learned the above word/phrase informally. Arabic speakers, please feel free to correct me. Thanks!
