CAIRO – 26 July 2017: We all like to have our coffee in served in different ways. Some of us prefer it with milk and sugar, others enjoy it without milk and sugar. However, it is all according to your taste buds.
The Turkey Food Engineering Department at Ege University has published a paper titled Identifying the Characteristic Taste of Turkish Coffee. The department found that Turkish coffee consists of 65 different tastes and aromas.
Turkey has been known for decades to have the best Turkish coffee. It all began way back in the 1640s with the opening of Istanbul’s first coffeehouse. Coffeehouse owners were actually Arabs not Turks. They began by serving the neighborhoods, soon after that the coffee culture began to take full swing.
Since then, roasted Turkish coffee has begun to advance, and it now contains an average of 50 different flavors and aromas. They differ with each roast and they give the coffee countless flavors and aromas.
The flavors and aroma are constantly shifting. For example, the mild roast serves a sweet and fruity taste. Medium roasts have a spicy and tobacco flavored sting, and the dark roast has a peppery, spicy, and earthy taste.
