You’ve finely made it to Asia.. wait Europe, wait…you’ve made it to two continents in one! That’s right, Istanbul lies in between the continents. After your long journey to Istanbul or another city in Turkey, you’re likely to have a little jetlag. What better way to get adjusted to the new timezone than with some turkish coffee.
- Turkish coffee is usually drank after a meal. Unlike most westerners who want their coffee first thing in the morning, Turks enjoy their coffee after a long breakfast or lunch. The turks look at coffee as a great way to complete a meal, not start one. While that is tradition, it doesn’t mean you can’t order one first thing in the morning. While in Bodrum, I ordered a cup first thing in the morning to enjoy by the harbor.
- Decide how much sugar you want when your order it. The sugar is mixed in while the coffee is brewed. Since the grounds are left in the cup, you can’t stir in your sugar after it’s made.
- No milk. You won’t need it, trust me.
