Turkish coffee has always been one of the most significant cultural symbols of Turkey. Almost every coffee person that knows about Turkey have tasted the tradition Turkish coffee before, or at least knows about it. If you are one of them, we only have one question for you today: Do you know these other types of Turkish coffee?
Dibek Turkish coffee is actually one of the more known and common variants of the Turkish coffee. It is made with stone-ground coffee, which makes its flavor and color a bit lighter than the traditional version. It is also made with hot water rather than starting with cold water and heating it up. If you do not like the strong taste of the traditional Turkish coffee, give Dibek Turkish coffee a try.
Menengic Turkish coffee is one of the most unique coffees you can find. It is not even made with coffee beans. It is made from the beans of a tree called Menengic (Pistacia terebinthus), also known as terebinth and turpentine tree. The coffee has no caffeine and has a much fruitier taste than the regular Turkish coffee. The way it is made is totally the same, though.
While our first two options were for those that don’t like the strong taste of the traditional Turkish coffee, this variation is the exact opposite. Mırra Turkish coffee is actually even stronger and more bitter than the regular one since the coffee beans are roasted twice. On top of that, the coffee beans used to make Mırra are grinded less finely than the regular Turkish coffee.
This Turkish coffee belongs to Adiyaman, a southeastern city in Turkey. It has a lot of ingredients like coffee, gum mastic, chocolate, locust beans, cream and Menengic coffee. Because it has a lot of ingredients, it is thicker but tastes lighter than a regular Turkish coffee.
