Luxurious Turkish Coffee

We've stocked Kusmi Tea since we opened in 2010, but have been looking for the perfect coffee since then too. When we found the luxury Istanbul based brand, Selamlique, we knew it was the right one for us. The packaging is chic, the coffee (and other delicacies they do) is beautiful and it's also pretty exclusive (we're one of only two stockists in Europe).
Some people shy away from Turkish coffee as they have settled into their way of using a cafetiere, moka pot or pod machine for their coffee, and it seems too much hassle to do something else. Selamlique Turkish coffee isn't something to rush in the morning before you leave for work, though. It's best enjoyed in the evening and sipped while you relax after a good meal. Simply pop a teaspoon of coffee per person into a metal jug, add sugar to taste and water, and simmer on the cooker for a couple of minutes. It takes no time at all, and you can serve it in a little espresso cup or one of our beautiful gold plated tea glasses if you really want to experience the ritual of the East.

Metal tins of Selamlique coffee start at £5.95, sweet treats at £6.95 and £16.95 and beautiful box sets around £59 - £115.
