Meaning & History

Means "coffee shop owner" in Greek, derived from the Ottoman Turkish word قهوه‌جی‎ (kahveci), equivalent to Greek καφές (kafés) both meaning “coffee” and‎ the Greek suffix -τζής (-tzís), from Ottoman Turkish قهوه‎ (kahve) and Ottoman Turkish ـجی‎ (-ci) respectively. Those are suffixes added to a noun, to create words for a male person who has an occupation related to that noun.
