Its very likely that the first coffee shop ever opened in the world was in Istanbul, it was thanks to the Ottoman empire that the coffee got spread all over Europe and then, to America. But, what has happened between the very first coffee cup ever brewed and the sophisticated flavors that we enjoy in specialty coffee.

Let’s immerse ourselves in this fascinating universe. First, we’ll have a brief talk about the coffee culture in the Istanbul and start by tasting a very authenitc cup of Turkish Coffee. Then we’ll enjoy a coffee tasting starting with an exercise in which we learn about the aromas, flavors, and textures you can find in a cup of coffee. We’ll try them and smell them isolated, and lastly, we’ll do the coffee cupping based on the standards of the Specialty Coffee Association of America. Get ready to taste some of the most fascinating and exotic beans of our world.

I have the feeling that no one reads up to here, if you did please send me a message on instagram @ricardo_lopez_nacif and I will send you a free Barista Handbook to take your coffee skills to the next level.

Elena:

I am globe trotter and coffee lover.

The past 6 years traveling the world taught me that no matter our gender, race or religion we are all the same in the way we love and share our humanity. The kindness in our eyes is universal.

As a coffee lover, it was comforting to find that no matter where I went in the world, there was always a cup of coffee waiting for me. And I got curious and started to explore what it was about coffee that connects us so deeply?

Ricardo:

I am the founder and CEO of Borola Café, coffee taster and judge in national coffee competitions. I have chosen some of the best beans we have in the world and I have designed this experience.

What a great start to the day. I enjoyed learning more about coffee and Riccardo even taught us how to make a proper pour over with the Chemex. Ricardo and Elena are a fun pair.

Coffee experience was the last one out of the few that we did with my boyfriend during our stay in Istanbul and it proved to be the best one. We didn’t really have any expectations but hanging out with Ricardo and Elena turned out to be fun, easy and educational. The tasting was very personable and very fast started feeling like we were hanging out with friends. Needless to say the coffee was delicious! After we wrapped it up with coffee we grabbed lunch with them and got to know each other even better. Agreed on staying in touch and perhaps meeting up somewhere else on the globe :) Thank you for such a wonderful last day in Istanbul, guys! See you!

I can surely call it a once in a lifetime experience, and even that would be a massive understatement. My girlfriend and I got met by Elena next to the Galata tower. We had a short walk to a small Turkish coffee shop where the owner has been making Turkish coffee for 38 years (just think about this number)! While sipping on our coffee, Elena told us some history about how coffee got originated and adopted by Turkey. Then we headed to a more modern coffee shop where Ricardo was waiting for us. When we walked in, the atmosphere was magical, there was a big table in a separate room on which there were residing small plates of oranges, grapefruits, limes, milk, etc. Ricardo slowly but surely explained to us the basics of coffee tasting by letting us try out different fruits and spices (some of them with our nose closed). You have to be mindful and present to truly understand and feel the flavors. But worry not, Ricardo got you covered and will help you along the way. We then brewed 2 different coffees using Chemex and spent the rest of the session discussing the flavors we were tasting. Can you feel black pepper? What about milk? And how about watermelon? During the entire process, Elena had been taking photos and videos of us, and now we have an entire photo album to treasure this experience. Elena and Ricardo were wonderful and enthusiastic about coffee, and they tried their best to make sure we have an amazing and unforgettable experience. Last but not least, they both are AirBnb community leaders in their countries and can tell you myriad stories from their life. By the end of the session, my girlfriend and I felt like we made good friends.
