Coffee Culture & the best cafés in Cihangir, Istanbul
Where tiny tulip-shaped glasses are continuously filled with black tea, çay, you wouldn’t expect that coffee is indeed one of the institutions that made Turkey famous throughout the history. So much that every year since 2014 the Istanbul Coffee Festival gathers tons of participants to workshops and panels on roasting techniques and blending, barista sessions and tasting. This year’s edition just took place from the 19th to the 22nd of September.
