14th century it became part of the Ottoman Empire and emerged as an Ottoman
center for ceramic industries.
COPPER TURKISH COFFEE
Our coffee pots hand made
by experienced artisans in Turkey. They are made with 1 mm heavy
thick copper with tin lining inside for ease of cleaning and they
are 100% lead free. Handles are individually turned on a lathe and
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. They are easy to care for, needing only an
occasional cleaning with a soft, damp cloth. Also, they tend to look better and
gain more character as they age...just like people!
EFENDI TURKISH COFFEE (8.81 oz - 250 g)
coffee is an art. From purchasing to roasting and grinding to packaging, every
stage of the process calls for a variety of skills and expertise as well as great attention to detail. It
takes a perfectionist to choose the highest quality coffee beans, a good ear to hear the songs
sung by the beans as they roast, and meticulous attention care to grind the
coffee correctly. As with any artist, coffee producers are not made but born.
The secrets of producing coffee are passed on from father to son, from master
to apprentice. Special formulas that are the result of many years of experience are passed on from
generation to generation.
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.
