The Best Turkish Coffee Shops in Chicago

Dating as far back as 1555, Turkish coffee has become widely known for its strong flavor and special preparation methods. Traditionally made from the Arabica coffee bean, Turkish coffee can also be prepared with robusta beans or a specialty blend. Though often thought to be named for the beans, authentic Turkish coffee refers to the way it is made using coffee that has been ground very finely. The art of preparing and serving this hot beverage is often sought after in cities around the world, and it’s available just around the corner from OneEleven. Chicago now has a number of places to experience this delicious treat. Here are three Turkish coffee shops in Chicago you should try:

Four Letter Word Coffee

Located in Logan Square, Four Letter Word Coffee is Chicago’s newest Turkish coffee hotspot. With a sister shop in Istanbul, Four Letter Word Coffee’s Chicago locale offers a spacious and bright space. It has lots of seating and decor that celebrate both its origins in Turkey as well as Chicago. The menu focuses on single-origin coffee beverages as well as sweet and savory fare provided by local favorite Cellar Door Provisions.

Oromo Cafe

Tucked away in the Lincoln Square neighborhood, Oromo Cafe combines a love for all things coffee with health-conscious food offerings. In addition to traditional coffee items, Oromo also delivers a great Turkish Coffee made with unfiltered coffee and a touch of cane sugar.
