Quoting Abla

I like Turkish coffee but I cannot think of it as real coffee. If I had to give up real coffee I doubt if Turkish coffee would even alleviate my withdrawal symptoms.

 

But "Turkish coffee" is the real coffee!! {#emotions_dlg.you_crazy}

This article is interesting:

 

The history of coffee:

Ethiopia - 11th century

Turkey - 16th century

Europe - 17th century

I bet your Mother in Law has been complaining about your disrespectful behaviour  to her neighbours as soon as you leave. And calling Turkish coffee ´like drinking dirt´ can be considered a crime against Turkishness and  that itself a good reason to get divorced!!! You might be SORRY!!!!

Well, she is Turkish.  I am sure she has been plotting my divorce since my wedding day!!  lol

Exactly, coffee was brought from Ethiopia, not from Turkey. And not until it got to Europe, we made it an addiction that we then sold in the US and made money!! {#emotions_dlg.lol}

That is exactly what happened to me!! One friendly soul even gave me a free Turkish coffee at a restaurant cause I kept asking about coffee.. but it did nothing to me! I was in withdrawal for 2 weeks...

Interesting, FWIW....I much prefer Turkish coffee. It´s what I make it at home. Other than that real expresso is good. Turkish coffee was hard to find when I was in Turkey, it seemed Nescafe was the thing....yukk. Turkish tea is great. Those herbal infusions also known as tea were nice too. 

Sometimes in the mornings I go to a little Ethiopian cafe and get a nice cup of expresso. I´d like to try real Ethiopian coffee like in the photo below...some day...

Maybe you brought it but WE made it TASTE good! {#emotions_dlg.super_cool} Now you´re still drinking that bitter dark drink while dreaming about our tasty starbucks but you´re afraid to admit it. 

 

 

Your tasty starbucks? Is it something like your tasty mcdonalds? {#emotions_dlg.lol}

 

Do you even know what starbucks uses to make those latte type drinks? They use espresso like any other coffee shop. Have you ever drunk the espresso they make? It tastes like burnt plastic because they use over-roasted and stale coffee.

Roasted coffee beans go stale in a few weeks even though it`s stored in an air tight pack, but starbucks uses beans that were roasted years ago. And they use all automatic espresso machines which make horrible coffee.

So starbucks is the mcdonalds of coffee shops, it`s junk coffee and their customers are those who know nothing about coffee like you. No wonder it`s an american brand. {#emotions_dlg.lol}

She is roasting green beans. Then she will ground it and she will repeat the exact same process everytime she brews coffee. That`s how real coffee is made. It`s all fresh.

 

Unfortunately the only place in Istanbul that serves Turkish coffee made of freshly roasted and grounded beans is a place called Mandabatmaz in Taksim.

There are also two microbreweries in Taksim that make espresso based drinks with fresh beans. Their names are Kronotrop and Cherrybean Coffees.
