Did you know that Ottoman’s are the reason beyond why you have to have your coffee in the mornings before anything else? And you do fancy yourself as a coffee aficionado? Then let us take you through the city while telling you the history of the coffee from 14th century till today!!!
Our tour will be covering from old traditional coffee houses (first wave of coffee makers) to new trendy places (third wave of coffee makers) while explaining why you should avoid second wave.
We will start around the Spice Market with a light breakfast where you will taste your first coffee and continue through the streets of the old peninsula to sample more. Before lunch you will cross the Golden Horn to Karakoy district where the new and trendy crowd gets their morning kicks. There if available we will meet a coffee enthusiast who will give us a little lecture about coffee where you can learn the importance, the differences and the ways to drink between these awesome tastes from the strongest to the regular, from the east to the west. Our tour will end with a delightful lunch in a typical local mama’s and papa’s style place tucked away from untrained eyes in a very old commercial part of the area.
Here is an anonymous saying from Turkish language which will make more sense at the end of the tour, “A cup of coffee made and drank together commits one to a forty years of loyalty and friendship with another” . So, are you in?
