“With its distinctive flavour and presentation, the unique Turkish coffee holds an important place in coffee culture.”
Introduced into Anatolia via the Arabian Peninsula at the beginning of the 14th century, the coffee bean quickly gained an important role in community culture, acquiring a distinctive flavour through a new preparation and brewing method developed by the Turks. Turkish coffee is a long-held tradition and a symbol of famous Turkish hospitality and Turkish coffee culture and tradition was listed as a UNESCO Intangible Cultural Heritage.
Served in small cups, Turkish coffee has created its own id and tradition with its unique taste, smell and presentation. Today, it is an important part of the Turkish culture.
Traditionally, it is made from beans ground into a fine powder, then cooked slowly in water over embers or low heat. It is a laborious undertaking – and the best Turkish coffee was said to have foam so thick that a camel could stand on it.
Today, this intensive brewing method has been replicated with automatic Turkish coffee machines that offer the distinctive flavour and foam of the hand-brewed beverage. Equipped with new generation technologies, these machines have gained favour among lovers of Turkish coffee, who appreciate their ease and speed, as well as their attractive designs and appearance.
“An entirely different sector has been established for Turkish coffee, which is an indispensable element in consumers’ lives due to its flavour, presentation and unique brewing method.”
Traditional Turkish coffee is elegantly presented. Often accompanied by a glass of water and a piece of lokum, the coffee itself is served in small, beautifully painted porcelain cups.
Offered in historic or modern designs, Turkish coffee sets are renowned for their appearance and quality, with new sets and designs introduced each year and manufacturers try hard to introduce new products and innovations that offer the finest coffee experience.
