Turkish Coffee

A cup of Turkish coffee, remembered for 40 years. With its delicious foam and wonderful aroma, there is no drink quite like Turkish coffee. Served in small but delicious doses, the calorie and caffeine count in a cup of Turkish coffee are moderate, meaning you can enjoy it more often.

Turkish coffee grounds, can be read to tell one's fortune. It is the only coffee that can be used to predict the future. The wonderful taste of Turkish coffee has been bringing people together for centuries, inspiring countless works of art and having a profound influence on culture.

One of the traditions that should be fulfilled in Turkey is to see the preparation of Turkish coffee and surely taste it.


One Cup of Coffee, More than a Drink

Turkish coffee derives its name from a specific preparation method; finely powdered roast coffee beans are boiled in a pot also known as cezve in Turkish and served in a cup where the dregs settle. The most distinctive characteristic of Turkish coffee is that only the flavour is consumed, not the grounds. Therefore, this beverage made from Arabica coffee grounds is healthier than most coffee types.

Black Pearls: Coffee lovers described the coffee beans as black pearls and Turkish coffee has a flavour worthy of this description. The fine grounds sink to the bottom of the cup and are not for drinking but used by fortune tellers to read the drinker's future.

Coffee Fortune: Coffee fortune telling was born out of Turkish coffee and is an inseparable part of the pleasure and conversation associated with coffee.

How to Serve: Turkish coffee is served in small cups. Usually, a glass of water and Turkish delight are served with Turkish coffee and they are generally consumed before drinking the coffee.
