We are pleased to be with you on our 150th Anniversary. Since 1871, Kurukahveci Mehmet Efendi has approached coffee production as an art form, passing on the skills, knowledge, experience and intricacies of the craft from father to son and from master to apprentice.

As a global company that is constantly expanding within the coffee sector, Kurukahveci Mehmet Efendi’s mission is to “introduce coffee lovers everywhere to the exquisite taste of Turkish Coffee and to introduce Turkish Coffee to a wide spectrum of people throughout the world without compromising quality.”

Turkish coffee, espresso or filter coffee – whatever the variety of coffee, roasting companies make purchasing decisions based on the results of taste tests conducted on samples of green coffee beans. In order to produce high quality coffee, they look for beans that fulfil specific criteria.

Using their extensive experience, the coffee experts at Kurukahveci Mehmet Efendi only subject the finest arabica coffee samples to visual and sensory tests. Coffee is only purchased after the highest quality batches have been selected.
