    What to Expect
    Turkish coffee, renowned for its rich and full body, is a national delight whose tradition has beckoned palates since the era of the Ottoman Empire. Embark on a voyage to taste the perfect cup and even immerse yourself and make some too. Meet your guide at your central hotel and kick-off your small-group tour by engaging in a 30-minute coffee making workshop. 

    Prepare a delicious cup of Turkish coffee by heating the brew on a sand stove in a traditional copper vessel. After a short time over a small flame, the coffee becomes frothy and is ready for consumption. Enjoy the yummy taste of your masterful work and collect a course certificate.

    Next, listen as your guide explains how prohibition mandates were put forth in 1519 by the Ottoman sultan after coffee beans were initially imported to Istanbul. As you stroll with your guide through an renown coffee passage, hear about the coffee shops that were pioneered in Istanbul's district of Eminönü about 30 years after the mandates. Then, relish tastings at a few coffee shops that embody centuries of coffee making heritage.

    From here, continue along corridors and discover how Ottomans stored their coffee, see a fascinating spice bazaar and visit one of oldest coffee businesses in the city, Kurukahvedji Inn. At every turn, enjoy fun commentary from your expert guide who will provide the extra flavor to go with your tastes of coffee.
