THE CAFE OF PIERRE LOTI
He is a French writer in love with Istanbul. This place was called by its name because it had a short novel to which it gave the title of the name of his beloved ‘Aziyade’. For him, Istanbul is the city that Loti loved as much as Aziyade and for him it was a unique city in the world.
If you want to drink a thick and strong Turkish coffee, at Pierre loti’s cafe it is a perfect place.
You can see the ‘Golden Horn’ in Istanbul that divides ancient Europe from modern Europe. Just sit in one of the chairs, breathe and keep quiet.
See in the distance the minarets of the mosques and feel the energy of Istanbul.
THE TURKISH COFFEE OR TURKISH COFFEE 🙂
Coffee is a culture, especially some places in the world.
Turkish coffee is one of the symbolics of long tradition and as an art worth trying at home.
It is basically a coffee served without straining, very dense and dark. Generally, you can cook for 3 or 4 people at the same time
We need a coffee maker called ‘CEZVE’ in Turkish.
We measure the amount of water according to the number of diners used the volume of each cup.
We put the water to heat in the ‘cezve’ with the Turkish coffee. About a tablespoon of 15 ml per cup and heat over low heat and we can add the desired amount of sugar. We stirred well.
With the first boil, a foam will come out that we must quickly pour into the cups with the help of a small spoon and then with the second boil we fill the cups completely.
If there is sparkling, your coffee is good,)
After finishing the coffee, if you are lucky a Turkish woman can tell you that you will come as a fortune teller.
