One of the best parts about travelling is the opportunity to immerse yourself in the cuisines of other cultures. Recreating food and drinks from other regions invites a similar sense of wonder, a soothing nostalgia of where we’ve been or sparking excitement for where we plan to go next. Integrate your wanderlust into your daily coffee routines and try out these 12 coffee drinks from around the world.
1. Turkey — Türk Kahvesi
If you’re looking for a potent dose of caffeine, look no further than Turkish coffee. Rich and bold, türk kahvesi is made by boiling water, sugar, and remarkably finely ground coffee in a cezve—a specialised copper pot. The coffee is left unfiltered, allowing the grounds to blend into the thick drink, which can be made even more decadent with the addition of milk.
Follow this beautifully detailed recipe for a powerful türk kahvesi.
Tatler Trivia: the next time you find yourself on the streets of Turkey, keep an eye out for stands and stores that boil türk kahvesi over a bed of hot sand, like this one.
