This is the place to purchase your Turkish Coffee. I woke up early on my last day in Istanbul just to come here and purchase some Turkish Coffee for back home. A bit of a queue, but the line goes rather quickly.

The oldest and the best coffee shop In Istanbul. We have to go in a queue to purchase coffee. Just off the busy street and a very simple operation.

This well-known shop selling high-quality Turkish coffee is located conveniently outside the Spice Bazaar. Though tins of this coffee can be found in any supermarket without waiting in line at the shop, locals stop here for the bags of fresh ground (çekilmiş) coffee.

Grand Bazaar
Tourists, hawkers, and locals come together at the
Grand Bazaar to comb its labyrinthine passageways in
search of a bargain – be it a pair of brand name
jeans, a handcrafted silk rug, or a perfectly brewed
cup of tea. Outside the vast bazaar, worn, narrow
streets wind their way down from its lofty perch to
the southern shore of the Golden Horn, where the
evocatively aromatic Spice Bazaar beckons alongside
