Turkish Coffee & World
Hashem's Turkish Coffee 60% Light & 40% Dark Roast 16oz
The Very Best Turkish Coffee....
This blend of Hashems signature coffee leans slightly more towards the lighter side than our 50/50 blend. Its perfect for those who like to add a lot of coffee to the pot because they like a heavy, but not bitter flavor profile. This is the blend our roasters make in their own homes. Our light roast is a grade A Colombian Excelso and the dark roast is a proprietary blend of 5 exotic beans from around the world.
Since 1959 the Hashem family has been roasting their exclusive signature blend Turkish coffee. As in music, we believe the perfect cup of coffee is an art form, every note coming together in a harmonious melody of perfectly balanced aromas and velvety textures. Our relationship with coffee has led us to understand its intimate nature. Our dance brings out the true tone and subtle nuances from the depth of our coffees soul. It is ground only moments before being whisked away to you. One kiss and you will dance this song forever.
What is Turkish Coffee?
Caution!!!!! Follow these next steps carefully or coffee will boil over creating a big mess.
Now while coffee is on the flame stop stirring and let the coffee in the pot begin to rise, when it starts to rise, slightly stir and remove from the flame. You want to repeat this step three times. The trick is to let the coffee rise as high as you can without it boiling over.
Now turn off the flame. Cover the pot with a small plate to keep warm and let rest for around 3 minutes to let the grounds settle to the bottom. Then pour and enjoy. Be sure not to pour the coffee at the bottom of the pot as you will be serving the grounds.
When serving Turkish Coffee to multiple quests, it is customary to pour just a little in each person’s cup first and then go back and fill the cups all the way, so that everyone may get a little bit of the “crema” of the top of the pot. A glass of cold water should be served with the coffee.
After a person drinks the coffee, it is a tradition to leave a very small amount in the bottom of the cup and flip the cup upside down for a minute or so. When you flip it back over, there will be different designs that the grounds create on the walls of the cup that can be read by someone who is a fortune teller!!!
