Turkey’s first coffee museum, opened by three coffee experts in the northern province of Karabük’s Safranbolu district — a UNESCO World Heritage site — to pass the 500-year-old coffee culture of Anatolia on to future generations, takes visitors on a historical journey.

Naim Koca and Atilla Narin, the writers of the book “Anadolu’nun Kay?p Kahveleri” (“Lost Coffees of Anatolia”), and Semih Y?ld?r?m, the inventor of coffee made of saffron, the world’s most expensive plant, have opened the Turkish Coffee Museum with materials they amassed over the years.

The museum is home to different coffees offered in various parts of Anatolia and 100- to 150-year-old coffee pots, cups, coffee grinders, scales, wooden spoons, water cubes and sugar bowls, shedding light on the history of coffee.

The museum offers some 40 types of coffees including “Burçak,” “Zingarella,” “Tarz-? Hususi,” “M?rra,” “Nohut,” “Cilveli,” “?ehzade,” “Hilve” and “Dibek.”
