Turkiye’s history with kahve (coffee) spans centuries. Rich, smooth, and with a unique kick, Turkish coffee served with a glass of water and a piece of lokum, it has become an iconic symbol of the country and its friendly people. More than simply a drink, coffee in Turkiye is a culture, an activity, a tradition. 

Brewed in a copper pot called a cezve, made with powder-like ground coffee, and sweetened to the drinker’s taste – brewing Turkish coffee is an almost meditative process engaging all your senses behind the stove. While the process looks simple, it demands a deft touch. During this demonstration you will be taught the story and history of the iconic drink alongside how to brew an authentic Turkish coffee to perfection with coffee-expert Nedim Aydoğdu. Within this demonstration you will also be shown how to make a Turkish coffee in the most authentic and flavourful way possible – using hot sand instead of a flame! 

Come along to Yunus Emre Institute London and engage with one of the world’s most vibrant coffee cultures. You can take this knowledge home with you to enjoy this delicious drink with good company and friendly conversation, just as it is meant to be.
