Turkish coffee - a story that dates back to the 16th century

Perhaps you have already heard of the Ottoman Empire? Through the spread of this, many cultures have mixed with the Turkish. This brought many great traditions closer to Europe. This is also the case with coffee.

This was first discovered by the Ottomans after they conquered countries like Syria, Mecca and Egypt. All of this happened in the 16th century. In today's Istanbul, then Constantinople, they even opened a medieval coffee shop. By the end of the 17th century they were hundreds. They were specially designed so that you can enjoy this toning drink to the fullest. Since then, Turkish coffee and the everyday culture of this country have been very closely related.

Coffee came to Europe in the 19th century

Turkish coffee is actually the first to come to Europe and that happens in the 19th century. A great connoisseur and good businessman by the name of Mehmet Efendi prepared this hot drink for the first time as we know it today. First he roasted the coffee beans and then ground them. The specific type of preparation, in which the coffee grounds remain unfiltered at the bottom of the cup, is rather untypical for us nowadays. However, some people still cook it this way. This type of preparation is what is meant when one speaks of “Turkish coffee” these days.

"Cesve" is the name of the vessel in which Turkish coffee is prepared

How exactly do you make Turkish coffee?

The way in which Turkish coffee is prepared is known as mocha. In the following we describe how exactly to do this. Take two very full teaspoons of ground coffee and mix the coffee powder with one teaspoon of sugar. Pour a cup of water over it. Then everything is mixed in the special jug called “Cesve” in turquoise. It is especially important that the cups are preheated. In the end, you pour everything into it without filtering the coffee grounds. Sometimes the Turkish hot drink is poured into another cup. In this way, some of the coffee grounds remain, but not all!
