Fodor's Review

On a backstreet just outside the western entrance of the Spice Market is the tiny flagship store of Kurukahveci Mehmet Efendi, Turkey's oldest coffee producer (founded 1871), whose finely ground coffee—which can be seen being ground on the premises—is legendary. Customers can purchase either beans or ground coffee, which makes a good souvenir of a trip to Turkey.
