Class A “Türk Kahvesi”

Her Türk Kahvesi sever bilir ki Mehmet Efendi, Türkiye’nin vazgeçilmezidir. Aromas’ ve lezzeti en iyidir. E’er ne alaca”n’z’ bilmiyorsan’z veya kahve dünyas’na yeni iseniz, Türk kahvesi için Mehmet Efendi bir klasiktir. Tavsiye Ederim

Every real Turkish Coffee lover knows that Mehmet Efendi, is Turkey’s number one. It’s aroma and taste is the best in market. If you can’t decide which to choose or if you’re not too familiar with Turkish coffee, Mehmet Efendi is a classic. I strongly recommend it. And being able to find this exotic taste in Amazon is another great opportunity. Overall I definitely recommend it.

Yesss Sir!

Proudly may I say, I’m more than flattered to see Kurukahveci Mehmet Efendi brand in here. People! I shout out! You have to try this beauty. Turkish Coffee is superb, but Kurukahveci Mehmet Efendi is one of THE BEST! No doubt you can use this coffee for your pleasure and I may guarantee you that the can would preserve the content fresh for about a year. Taste of Kurukahveci Mehmet Efendi is far beyond compare with other Turkish Coffee brands. So, you’re lucky for being able to reach out to K.K.M.Efendi coffees… MUST TASTE IT!

I bought two 17.6 oz cans. Both are marked with 12/2010 packing date and 12/2012 expiration date. This coffee is absolutely bland, nothing like Effendi I have had before this order, from a different vendor. Either it was stale before it was canned or there might be another possible explanation. The text on either can is in Turkish and German. The same brand bought before, from a different vendor, was in Turkish and English. Perhaps, for German market, it is supposed to be bland but I doubt it. The largest Turkish community outside of Turkey would not drink this stuff.

I got full refund from Amazon.

I strongly recommend to buy your Mehmet Effendi from another vendor and to make sure the text on the can is in Turkish and English.

Acquired taste

I am an avid coffee drinker and have tried many different types of coffee. I had Turkish coffee many times except my friend always ground her own and I liked the flavor of her coffee. I was grinding my own coffee and preferred the taste over this Turkish coffee. While this coffee is ground to perfection and was not expired ( it actually has another year and a half) as well as packaged in a great canister that easily fits in the refrigerator , My taste buds are not adjusting to the flavor. Mehmet Efendi Turkish Coffee has a very earthy almost topsoil earthy flavor. Not that I’ve tasted topsoil but the smell of topsoil is how this coffee tastes to me. That’s about as good as I can explain it. Like I stated earlier it is an acquired taste and I am in no way stating it is terrible coffee but before you purchase this consider buying your own favorite coffee bean and grinding it to a fine powder. I use the magic bullet to grind my coffee beans and it works great.

Sweet experience

You can walk through the spice bazaar, through the streets and past the storefronts amidst the crowd and crush of Istanbul’s market bazaar, until, near the Bosporus you come to the Mehmet Efendi window and smell the sweet scent of Turkey’s greatest coffee.
What Illy is to Italy, Mehmet Efendi is to Turkey, and let’s remember-the Turks started it! Oh, what sweet scents, what delicious varieties. I always bring home as much as my suitcase will carry. This year I may throw away all my clothes to make room for more Mehmet Efendi. Oh, and if you are not hitting Istanbul, isn’t it nice that you can get it on Amazon?

The Very Best in Turkish Coffee!

I was in Istanbul a few weeks ago and asked a Turk what is the best Turkish coffee available. He say Kurukahveci Mehmet Efendi and handed me a 8oz can. I took it home and tried it and I must say it is the best I have tried from Kuwait, Turkey, or the USA, even as a novice preparing it at home. I’m happy to see that it can be purchased from the USA. You will not be disappointed, just follow the directions on the can and prepare for a treat.

Good Stuff

My wife and I have been drinking this coffee for over 8 years and find it to be the best of everything we’ve tried.

Mehmet Efendi Turkish coffee is what i was looking for !!

I have been looking for some sort of “Real” Turkish coffee around coz i used to drink Turkish coffee as part of my rituals in the morning being a Middle Eastern and i finally found it.I will re-buy it most definitely

Great coffee, if you make it in a traditional Turkish “kettle” you will really see the beauty of a slow-brewed cup of coffee. Also, watch out for the grit at the bottom!

The Best

The best coffee ever. Finally found it after drinking others. Definitely want more and also bring some to Macedonian parents who love Turkish coffee.

The real thing.

(This review is very similar to one I did for another brand.)

Let me start by saying that, while not a snob or connoisseur, I have tried just about every method of making coffee known to humanity. Drip, perk, pump and steam espresso, Aeropress, Neopolitan, Canadian-made coffee bags, Toddy concentrate and everything but pan boiled with eggshells. I’ve ground my own beans and even roasted them in small quantities. (I must have been an alchemist in a previous time!) Most of my gear (La Pavoni espresso machine, Capresso pump machine, Capresso conical grinder, countless Bialetti pots, Revereware stainless drippers, etc.,) have come from fortunate thrift store finds.

My interest in Turkish style coffee came about with the purchase (online auction-used) of an ASTOUNDING Turkish-made fully electronic, sensor controlled masterpiece of an automatic maker from Beko which is even easy to clean! It has won awards from CeBIT, the world’s largest and most international computer expo. Atatürk would be proud!

I found that my grinder could produce very close to the powder-like nature of ground Turkish coffee. But I wanted to try “the real thing,” so I ordered this brand and another. This brand is from Turkey and comes in an attractive almost collectable metal can.

My biggest surprise was that the coffee is not as dark roasted as what I had used before. But very pleasant with (traditionally) sugar or without.

If you have a local coffee supplier with the gear to REALLY grind down to Turkish style, you are in luck. If not, give this a try. Standard stove-top boiler pots are cheap, but the Bekos are not. As all coffee tends to come from the same sources, I suspect I will be able to find similar quality locally, grind it or have it ground, and store it in this can. Makes it easy to spot the Turkish grind!

Wonderful, Rich Body…Love the caffeine.

This is, without a doubt, the best Turkish Coffee I have ever tried. Very sophisticated taste. Unfortunately, I am not a coffee connoisseur. But I prefer this to anything made at Starbucks, Peetes or Diedrichs. If you love the taste of coffee and haven’t tried any Turkish Coffee before, this is the genuine article. I just brew mine in a simmering pot over the stove. No fancy gizmos. Not that I wouldn’t love to try to make it in one of those tiny pots, but my house is filled with every Ronco infomercial kitchen appliance since 1989 and I don’t have any more room. Plus, its like 3 of those pots to one of my coffee cups. Finally, this stuff lasts forever and a day. It should take me a month or two to finish it.

Absolutely wonderful!

Wonderful product, can tell it is fresh (!!!!!!), tastes great!
Purchased for myself, then ordered additionally to give as a gift. The best Turkish/Armenian/Mediterranean coffee ever!!! Not mixed with any additives, “fillers”, or by-products as most coffees are, though they don’t even indicate it on their labels.

Rich in flavors, not bitter, very finely grounded (as it should to be!) Speedy delivery! Nicely packed! Would highly recommend to everyone! All my guests love it!

Thank you!

Good Coffee!

I have used this coffee in the past, so I knew in advance that it was a good product. In fact, it was originally given to me as a gift by a friend from Turkey.

Excellente ~

It is one of the best Turkish coffee available! I love Turkey and went there twice. Every time I was there, I always ordered their cai (tea) or Mehmet Efendi Coffee. I’m so glad that it is available from

There is a little tips in brewing Turkish or Greek coffee.

1) Use filtered water if possible. It does make a difference.

2) Use medium high heat.

3) When you place the pot on the stove, ensure you don’t over boil it. After it is boiled for 1-2 minutes, the coffee should have very tiny-bubbled foam. If you have BIG bubbles – you are over boiling it. Turn down the temperature.

4) Once the tiny-bubbled foam starts to rise up, remove it from the stove and spoon the foam into you cup. Within seconds, place it back to the stove and continue to boil it w/medium to medium high heat. After 10-15 seconds, your coffee is ready to be served. To me, the tiny-bubbled foam makes the coffee smoother.

It takes a few good trys to make a perfect cup – Enjoy!

Good coffee

My Husband like this coffee. I just wish we could find other Turkish coffee brands or the Turkish coffee with Cardamom we used to get in Amman, Jordan. I would recommend this coffee to anyone

Best Coffee Ever

If you have never tried Greek or Turkish coffee you really must try this first, you will save time finding the best brand. Absolutely amazing flavor, also try eating a few dates after to complement the coffee taste.
