Enjoying Turkish coffee at Zeitan

Turkish coffee

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

  

A cup of Turkish coffee served at an İstanbul terrace.Turkish coffee (see name and variants for other names) is coffee prepared by boiling finely powdered roast coffee beans in a pot, possibly with sugar, and serving it into a cup, where the dregs settle. It is common throughout the Middle East, North Africa, Caucasus, and the Balkans, and in their expatriate communities and restaurants in the rest of the world.

 

Coffeehouse culture is highly developed in the former Ottoman world, and this is the dominant style of preparation.
