Coffee was brought to İstanbul when Governor of Yemen Özdemir Pasha liked the taste of coffee in 1543. The coffee was prepared with a technique unique to Turks by using billycan and coffeepot. Turkish Coffee emerged with this new technique. During that era merchants and travelers visiting İstanbul were served Turkish Coffee. And since back then, the fame of Turkish Coffee spread across the world.
