Nyethe : Cigarette drawing tradition with Coffee

. Nyethe is an activity to draw or paint on a cigarette with coffee grounds to use the media in the Java language called cethe.That's why this activity called nyethe.  Based on stories by word of mouth, a habit is actually nyethe initiated by the farmers who run out of coffee while wedang a break after working in the fields. I Wife who usually eat and wedang sent into the fields to coffee farmers.  If then the coffee has been delivered while coffee is still not satisfied, then the applying farmers apply cethe or coffee grounds into cigarettes and then smoked.  There is also the opinion cethe origins began when the farmers finished work from the fields, their habits will stop at the shop for coffee and meet other fellow farmers to just mingle and discuss issues surrounding their farm. . While coffee and chatting, the occasional cigarette at the suction smeared with coffee grounds in the cup. 
The coffee was not as smooth as now existing or rough.. Deposition   to cigarettes and burning sensation caused its own.   This added to the joy of coffee while chatting in a coffee shop. The story above is considered as the beginning of what makes nyethe as typical of the Regency Tulungagung which until now still remain and have become custom.
 Initially, nyethe known only in Tulungagung, East Java alone. . This habit then it spread to other areas such as in Malang, Kediri, Surabaya and other cities.  Nyethe activities that caused this was not even familiar to people outside Tulungagung District. Even many who thought such activities do not come from Tulungagung because of the many coffee shops outside Tulungagung District.
 At the current development, nyethe not only be done when the coffee was gone and the glass of his only remaining course cethe.  But a cup of hot coffee wedang accidentally poured into the saucer or pengalas glass.  A few minutes later, the water in the glass pengalas returned again to the cup.  If cethe still too wet, a few sheets of scrap paper square paper placed on top of it, to absorb the water.  Blackish brown Cethe apparent later this dioles-apply to cigarettes that would suck. . And in cethe it can be, for then nyethe. The people who often argued with nyethe in cethe, cigarettes taste better assessed and aromatic appeal. In addition to providing a fresh scent, cethe also believed to make cigarettes more durable, not otherwise needed, and much more delicious.
The number of self-employed workers in Tulungagung growing number of vendors supporting the coffee shop in this city.  According to data from the current  Tulungagung Gover ment cethe number reaches 1700 stall stall.  We have a well-known nyethe shop, shop that provides exclusively for this purpose.Among them is Waris Warkop and Mak Tin, Warkop Pak Sigit, behind the market square Pahing, Warkop Yani, and Chandra warmus tone. Price cethe glass coffee is very cheap, only Rp 1000, -.
Cethe proprietor provides in-saucer saucer to facilitate the cethe opinion .So that visitors stay to stem spread cethe cigarette. The penyethe any cethe applied to cigarettes as are batik with various motives, ranging from the form lines, a circle, a butterfly, batik to black. In order taken coffee grounds good, it must be ensured that the fine residue left on the saucer been silenced for a moment.  The goal for this coffee grounds thickened without water. . The seller must use a fine coffee powder and milk are sometimes given to a good level of adhesiveness of the painting.   While painting is a tool of their own matches. NNyethe really need accuracy, but it also trains nyethe patience.
 Social interactions of Nyethe activities:
            Social interaction is defined as a social behavior that is always in the framework of such groups in the structure and function of social groups. . Also, social interaction is a relationship between two or more human individuals where one individual behavior change or improve the behavior of other individuals or vice vers. Of social interaction can be drawn conclusions about aspects of social interaction that is the individual, the purpose, the relationship between individuals and groups, and the relationship with the structure and function of the group.
            Based on this definition, nyethe have in common that could be the basis for the claim that the activities are nyethe elements of social interaction. The similarity is more activity rather than by individual groups, such as sitting and chatting in groups nyethe.
            There are four types of social interaction that is komensialisme, parasialisme, mutualism, and sosiality. Dari keempat jenis interaksi sosial ini, kegiatan nyethe masuk dalam kategori mutualisme dan sosiality. Of the four types of social interaction, activities fall into the category nyethe mutualism and sosiality.
            Mutualism is the social interaction mutually beneficial for both ,In this nyete activities benefit all parties in accordance with the role and purpose of each of the parties involved in these activities. . For example proprietor profit from coffee and cigarettes are sold in the coffee shop, coffee shop while visitor  have the satisfaction of enjoying coffee and cigarettes while nyethe in a coffee shop. Fellow guests were also able to exchange opinions, information or just chat that make each individual feel both happy and enjoy.
While sosiality category is a social interaction that is societal.  Forms of social interaction that comes from the existing community and impact on society itself.  If viewed from a historical aspect, nyethe activities created by the fun people, especially smokers as subject the perpetrator, and the impact on society itself is narrow and the overall community in general.
            The visitor as an individual stalls cethe can not be separated from stall situations where it is located.  Gathering of a few visitors in one place doing the same thing that makes creating a situation nyethe hereinafter nyethe form groups or communities in one place.
            The situation facing togetherness penyethe will grow and direct the spontaneous behavior.  Group together have characteristics responsible for a relatively short time, the participants are physically connected, the lack of rules organized, and spontaneous interaction.
 Togetherness in the group activity in long-term nyethe can form new communities in the society Tulungagung cethe community mania.  There are activities that facilitate creativity nyethe actors, such as race or nyethe a Nyethe kompetition Tulungagung district.  Because nyethe habitual smokers, especially in areas Tulungagung, it can be regarded as nyethe culture Tulungagung smokers in the area. There must have known how long batik tradition of cigarettes with coffee grounds or at the call of popular rage began cethe Tulungagung community From year to year, this penchant for becoming entrenched mencethe. I That's evidenced by the number of contestants cethe held Sukowiyono Village residents, District Karangrejo, . In addition, in conjunction with the anniversary of the Supreme Tulung to 800, also has held the race was sponsored by nyethe Gudang Garam.
            So as can be concluded that the negative assumptions of society that considers activities nyethe is a waste of time is not always true. This is proven by the research data that shows that the activities conducted at the time nyethe varied and only a few elements of a waste of time. Some even consider having nyethe many artistic elements.Actually a waste of time or whether nyethe activities rely heavily on the perpetrators nyethe subject itself.
In terms of socio-cultural and social, nyethe is the origin of the formation of a social interaction is more positive.  And the social interaction that occurs from the visitors who come from various levels, both from the young and old, blended into one. Besides the known existence of the formation of new communities such as race or nyethe often called "Nyethe Competition" in various places both in the stalls, in the plaza or in the event a big anniversary.
.           Of social interaction which are then formed a new community in Tulungagung society that directly or indirectly create a new culture among the people of smokers. Tulunga
