World Explorations Istanbul Espresso takes you back in time to the original coffeehouses. This intense ambrosial brew bursts with boldness, wild ripe fruits, and a delicate almond touch. Thick and velvety in homage to Turkish coffee, its Ethiopian Arabica and Indian Robusta remind us of this city at the crossroads of the ancient coffee trade routes. It’s a blend as cosmopolitan as the crowd gathered in an Istanbul coffeehouse.

Enjoy it like a local: Accompany it with a glass of water and a piece of Turkish Delight.

The thick, velvety character of World Explorations Istanbul Espresso is a modern tribute to the ancient traditional Turkish brewing method—that lovely long-handled brass or copper coffee pot that goes by the names of cezve and ibrik. The taste of this oldest of coffee brewing traditions is celebrated by the blend’s Ethiopian Arabica beans—a coffee as old as time. The Indian Robusta tells the story of how coffee first escaped and journeyed out of Africa. These coffees come together to bring a wonderfully complex profile—of both bitterness and acidity, wild fruitiness and roasted notes.

A coffee as eclectic and simultaneously harmonious as the bustle of activity in the world’s earliest coffeehouses found in this cosmopolitan city of the bygone Ottoman Empire. And it’s as dynamic as the story of coffee on this crossroads of the ancient trade routes centuries ago.

This beautifully intense cup leaves only one thing to be desired—its pairing with the thickly sweet taste of a Turkish Delight.

DESCRIPTION

A cosmopolitan blend of Arabicas and Robusta brings both wild fruit and spice notes and a delicate hint of almond running through a velvety body.

SENSORIAL PROFILE

This thick and velvety blend displays wild spicy and fruity notes, with a hint of almond and a pleasant roasty aftertaste.

ROASTINESS PROCESS

This classic split-roast has average intensity and roasting time. The batches are separated in arabicas and robustas for a more precise roast.

MILK DESCRIPTION

In a latte machiatto, Istanbul is surprisingly aromatic, with exotic fruit notes and a jammy touch. It is also sweet and smooth, with a cereal finish.

WORD OF EXPERT: “Its secret lies in the blending of its two coffee origins, Ethiopian Arabica and Indian Robusta, making it the ideal sweet yet bold espresso for your coffee break.”
