Description
Walk in the local, non-touristy, hipster part of Istanbul that is Moda and feel like a local! Stroll around the streets with Ilkin, a Turkish coffee lover that will share with you fun facts, interesting stories and the culture around coffee that there is in Turkey. 

You will drink from the most traditional, to the most unknown and the most modern coffee. You will get to know the most hipster coffee shops you can find in Istanbul, where they do pistachio coffee, turkish coffee, delter, coffee cocktails and so much more! 

While you are totally immersed in the culture of the coffee in Turkey, Ilkin will teach you how to play local traditional games, like OKEY, in an old hidden coffee shop.

These are some of the questions that you will be able to answer after your time with Ilkin:
- Why did Turks need a coffee made from pistachio?
- How could women divorce their husband because of coffee?
- How did the Turkish flag affect what goes good with coffee in Europe?
- What made black tea more popular than coffee in Turkey?
- How did the Ottoman Empire become the only country that produced and consumed coffee?
- Which coffee shops do locals hangout in?

In total, you will visit 6 local boutique coffee shops and try coffee as much as you wish.

If you have tolerance to caffeine, we may share the cups or you can drink the local drink "Ayran" at the end to get rid of the caffeine!
