Turkish coffee is one of the most popular drinks in Turkish culture. As I am Turkish, I adore Turkish coffee. Every time I visit Istanbul, I buy a few packets of Turkish coffee. Before pandemic, my family and my friends were constantly visiting Rome and they were bringing me Turkish coffee and Turkish delight.
Actually I can find Turkish coffee in Rome but brand is very important for me. I prefer to buy freshly ground coffee.
Turkish coffee has a very rich culture and history. I have a blog post about it. If you would like to read Turkish coffee culture, you can read it from here.
I drink two cups of coffee every day. If I am in Italy, I drink one cup of Turkish coffee and one cup of espresso, cappuccino or Americano. If I am in Turkey, I mostly drink two cups of Turkish coffee.
Turkish coffee is a part of the daily routine for Turkish people. I was in Istanbul in December 2020 to March 2021 but I couldn’t be able to drink at my favorite cafes. Because restaurants/cafes were open only for take away due to pandemic.
There is no Covid-19 restrictions right now. One of my favorite things to do in Istanbul is drinking Turkish coffee in a cafe with a sea view with the people I love.
Turkish coffee is often served with a sweet such as a piece of chocolate or Turkish delight and a glass of water on the side.
I don’t eat sugar but when I am in Turkey, I let myself eat small piece of gluten free cake, chocolate or Turkish Delight. Because all of these are very promising.
