coffee time

İzmir, Çeşme
Coffee time has a strong and active presence in the community. Even though many of the rituals of drinking coffee are not prevalent in modern Turkish customs, coffee still remains a major part of our culture.
Have you ever tried Turkish Coffee before?

Yes, I tried it in Istanbul and I liked it a lot. I can't stand American-style coffee and only drink cappuccino and café au lait.

Your photos are beautiful.

In Portugal we drink a lot of coffee, is is part of our culture here and when we go abroard its always dificult to us to find one that we like. We drink that small coffee too, caled expresso in the other countries, but of many origins. My favorite is however the arabic. I think I had tasted turkish coffee in greece, at least what was announced.

Yes, and I remember it quite well, but I was a teenager at the time with no exposure to coffee. I wonder if I would like it now as an adult.

Your photo today is so lovely and has perfect composition, color, and is so interesting. Congrats on this fine image! If only I could transport myself there now!

If it's strong I'll probably enjoy it. That's the way I want my coffee. Great picture!

Kim: Thank you so much for stopping by and taking time to comment. Turkish coffee has a unique taste, froth, aroma, brewing technique and presentation. In other words it has its own identity and tradition. Drinking coffee is a unique pleasure for us and is not the kind of coffee you grab on the way to work. Probably you'll like it.

Fredrik: Turkish coffee is a very flavorful and often strong coffee. Sure you'll like it. And thanks for your thoughts on the photo...
