Other Nations Favored to Turkish Style Coffee

Turkish style coffee is the main caffeine drink in a lot of other countries besides Turkey.

These countries are spread from North Africa, Middle East, and Balkans to Baltic Sea and Caucasus. Most of them were once influenced by the Turkish culture or were under the rule of the Ottoman Empire.

Countries that drink Turkish coffee under their nation name: (More coming soon…)

Greece was one of the first countries that were a part of the Ottoman Empire since 1453. Turkish coffee drinking was a part of Greece culture since then. The country gained its independence from Turkey in the beginning of the 19th century. Due to political reasons in the mid of the 20th century the name of this type of coffee became “Greek coffee”. It was strongly marketed as such since then. Greek coffee was especially targeted among the Greek immigration communities in the USA, Australia, Germany, and UK.

Israel as a state was established in 1948. Since Israelis live in an Arabic environment, their coffee incorporated a few influences from that culture. As an example is the extensive use of cardamom. “Turkish coffee” is still written on Elite’s brands (main Israeli coffee manufacturer) but people call it with many other different names. Due to political reasons, now there is a strong movement to change it to “Israeli coffee” or “Jewish coffee” or “Black coffee”. In Israel though, they have a unique version of Turkish coffee which is called “café botz” (mud coffee). They don’t cook the coffee grounds. They just mix them with hot water (or milk) in a small glass or mug.
