Workshop: Turkish Coffee Experience and Fortune Telling ($30 USD per person)

UNESCO Intangible Cultural Heritage

UNESCO Intangible Cultural Heritage

Turkish coffee differs, not in the choice of beans, but in its preparation from other coffees. Finely ground roasted beans and sugar (optional) are added to water, and boiled on low heat multiple times in a special pot called cezve. Served unfiltered, Turkish coffee bears earthy aromas, a distinctive full body and frothy texture. The more foam there is on top of the cup, the better quality it is.

After learning about the history of Turkish coffee, you can also experience how to make it and read coffee cups. You will first make your own coffee in the traditional way, then the fortune teller will read your cup and tell you about your future.
