Turkish Coffee by Canankk Turkish Coffee by Canankk
:star: A cup of Turkish coffee is endowed with a variety of important connotations for Turks: friendship, affection and sharing. This is best illustrated in the old saying: "A single cup of coffee can create a friendship that lasts for 40 years". Turkish coffee is such an intrinsic part of Turkish culture that it has given its name to the word for breakfast, "kahvaltı", which translates as "before coffee", and is derived from the words "kahve" (coffee) and "altı" (before).

:star: Serving a cup of Turkish Coffee is also a way of sealing a friendship. The preparation and care taken by a host in serving Turkish Coffee to his guests is an important aspect of hospitality. In Turkey, it is traditional for a prospective bride to serve coffee to her suitor and his family when they come to ask for her hand in marriage. Accepting a cup of coffee is a source of pride to the person who offers it. This is illustrated in the Turkish expressions "his coffee can be drunk" and "I would drink a cup of your coffee".

:star: Ever since the first coffeehouse opened in Istanbul in 1554, coffee has had a tremendous impact on art and culture. Countless artists, students and teachers have come together in coffeehouses to read books, perform plays and hold lively discussions.

:star: The first coffee was made in the Arabian Peninsula by boiling coffee cherries. The new method invented by the Turks revealed coffee's true flavour and peerless aroma. The Turks introduced coffee to Europe where for many years it was prepared and consumed as Turkish Coffee.

:star: Turkish Coffee is made from high quality arabica coffee beans from Central America and Brazil that are blended and carefully roasted, then very finely ground. The coffee is mixed with water and the desired amount of sugar and cooked in a "cezve", or Turkish coffeepot. The coffee is served in small cups. The coffee must be left to stand for a short time after serving to allow the grounds to settle at the bottom of the cup.

Canan bak aklıma ne geldi. Kahve konusunu biraz çalışsak mı?...
Çok bizden ve hayatımızdaki yeri gercekten senin özetlediğin gibi çok büyük...Su söylediğin şeylerden her hangi biri bir fotıograf konusu olabilir. Güzel bir seri cıkar...Sen böyle seyleri iyi yaparsın, bizleri toparlasana...Bir segi acalım DA'da kahve içme alışkanlıkları konusunda...Seninle bunu konuşmak istiyordum ben de... :iconnikita-kely: diye bir hanım var, Yunanlı. Bir iki tane kahve fincanı resmi çekmiş. Onunla konuştuk; Türk kahvesi-Yunan kahvesi falan diye...Şimdi sende de aynı konuyu ve çok güzel bir sunumla verdiğin gercekten mükemmel fotografını görünce...
B,ir baryam sabahı bu fotografa bakmak azcık iç burksada...,Pırıl pırıl odaklı güzel fotografının hakkını vermek gerek; fovorimsin...

Interesting information Canan :nod: Like many things in America, a cup of coffee has been reduced to just that...a cup of coffee. It's good to see other folks in the world still hold some things in high esteem and reverance.

Though the part about letting the coffee stand for a few minutes is reminiscent of the 'Cowboy Coffee' (as my grandmother called it) I remember the older folks in my family drinking at times. Water is boiled and a handful of coffee would be tossed in--a few minutes later you had coffee :thumbsup:

Thanks for sharing :)
