The oldest coffee house in Europe beside the Parisian “Café Procope” is to be found in Leipzig, Germany. In 1694 Heinrich Schütze opened the “Coffe Baum” in 4 Kleine Fleischergasse and gave out free coffee. Over the following three centuries, many notable personages met here and enjoyed the popular drink. Gottsched, Klinger, E. T. A. Hoffmann or Wagner were often seen going in and out. Goethe, Lessing, Bach and Grieg were also known to be guests there. In the Schumann Room
situated on the ground floor, Robert Schumann would meet with friends at his regular table between 1828 and 1844. Revolutionaries such as Blum, Liebknecht and Bebel also made “Coffe Baum” their second living-room. In 1990 Helmut Kohl and Lothar de Maizière discussed the possibilities of reunification here.

The sandstone sculpture above the doorway to “Coffe Baum” is especially famous. An Ottoman offers cupid a cup of coffee. It symbolises the meeting of the Christian western world with the Islamic East. No other than Augustus the Strong was supposed to have donated this sculpture as way of saying thank you to the landlady, who had taken immaculate care of him. One of the most important coffee museums’ worldwide is to be found on the third floor. Over 500 chosen exhibits from 300 years of Saxony’s coffee and cultural history are presented over 15 rooms.

Please post here any questions you may have about Turkish coffee. I will try to answer it best as I can. I know that there are a lot of questions on how to make it, how many times to boil it, what kind of pot to use, how to select the size etc. Also, feel free to post any comments you have about your experiences in making and serving Turkish coffee....

Don't miss it Chicagoan s...on February 25th, Saturday...9 AM to 5 PM...Coffee Con 2012 in Warrenville, Illinois....It is all about tasting coffee. But, unlike wine, coffee must be prepared fresh each time it is tasted. A wine connoisseur need not be a wine vintner, but a coffee lover must learn to brew coffee. This event covers both tasting and brewing, including Turkish coffee!

This is the original shop, located at Eminonu district of Istanbul, where Mr. Mehmet Efendi started his roasting company in 1871. Today it is the oldest and the biggest roasting company in Turkey. Even though there are many brands these days, people still line up in front of it everyday to buy freshly roasted coffee. You can also by this coffee from our web site here in US because they use the latest fully automated filling and sealing machines to package coffee in specially designed cans that preserve the coffee's freshness up to its expiry date, keeping it as fresh as the day it was ground.
