Book Description

A wonderful trip down memory lane, this lavishly illustrated book tells the story of the world’s most famous purveyor of Turkish coffee. But it does so against a backcloth of changing times, making it a fascinating study of social history. Archive images evoke the wonderful bustle of old Emininönü, while Manual Çıtak’s lense captures graphic images of coffee-making. You can almost smell the flavour.

The book brings the story firmly up to the modern day, with lively behind-the-scenes images. The family are still in charge and completely dedicated. And it shows. This is one of Turkey’s national living treasures.
