TRADITIONALLY DESIGNED CUPS

Each unique copper piece is hand made by experienced artisans in Anatolia. They are carefully etched with elaborate designs, then polished and hand painted one by one with decorative bright colors! They look like pieces of art but made for everyday use. You'll have a conversation piece for sure, as you sip your coffee with friends and family.

Cups include a porcelain insert that comes out for cleaning and have cast brass handles. They are easy to care for, needing only an occasional cleaning with a soft, damp cloth. In case you are wondering if the colors fade away with time and use; no they do not at all. However, exposed copper will get dark with time but you can polish it to keep it's shine if you like; but we think they tend to look better and gain more character as they age...just like people do!

COPPER TURKISH COFFEE POT

Copper is the perfect material to use for making Turkish coffee because, more than any other metal, is known for its ability to diffuse heat evenly and conduct it quickly throughout its surface. Hence, it is used all over the world as high-efficiency conductors of heat and are especially coveted for their ability to quickly bring water to a boil.

PREMIUM TURKISH COFFEE

Kurukahveci Mehmet Efendi has been roasting coffee since 1871. Today, it is the biggest and the oldest coffee company in Turkey. They use the latest fully automated filling and sealing machines to package coffee in specially designed cans that preserve the coffee's freshness up to its expiry date, keeping it as fresh as the day it was ground. (8.8 oz / 250 g)


TURKISH DELIGHT WITH NUTS (1 lb /500 g)

The sweet as it is known today was invented by Bekir Effendi, who moved from his hometown Kastamonu to Istanbul and opened his confectionery shop near the Yeni Camii Mosque in 1776.

Originally, honey and molasses were its sweeteners, and water and flour were the binding agents, with rose water, lemon peel and bitter orange as the most common flavors (red, yellow and green). Lokum was introduced to Western Europe in the 19th century. An unknown Briton reputedly became very fond of the delicacy during his travels to Istanbul and purchased cases of it, to be shipped back to Britain under the name Turkish delight. It became a major delicacy in Britain and throughout Continental Europe for the high class society. During this time, it became a practice among upperclass socialites to exchange pieces of Turkish delight wrapped in silk handkerchiefs as presents.

** Turkish delight we include may not be the same as pictured.
