Turkish sand-brewed coffee is causing a stir in China_ 英语 频道 _ 央视 网 (cctv.com)



NANNING, Sept. 20 (Xinhua) – Nowadays, when young Chinese people think of Turkey, in addition to ice cream and hot air balloons, many remember sand-ground coffee.

Photos and videos of Turkish sand coffee are commonplace on social media platforms such as TikTok, Xiaohongshu, and Bilibili, with exotic rugs, tapestries, copper stoves filled with fine sand, and small, long coffee makers. handle.

In recent years, Turkish sand coffee has become increasingly popular in China, with specialty beer stores in several cities, including Guangzhou, Hangzhou, and Shenzhen.

Unlike instant coffee, the brewing process – involving small coffeemakers nestled in a bed of hot sand – has attracted attention. Many young people have started to buy the equipment and experience the process at home, increasing sales for professionals.

At the recent 18th China-ASEAN Expo, Osan, an exhibitor from Yemen, demonstrated how to make Turkish sand coffee on a stove top, eliciting enthusiasm from visitors.

Osan stood with his set of copper stoves, with pans of fine sand heated from below, and an array of cups and nuts. Osan poured water into the long-handled jar, mixed in some coffee powder, and then nestled the jar in the hot sand.

“The sand heats up the sides and bottom of the copper pot, so that the purest taste of the coffee powder itself can be maximally retained inside,” Osan said as he pushed the pot. back and forth. The coffee boiled quickly and the brew was poured into a holding cup.

Among the Chinese recently converted to this rich drink is Nini, from the city of Laibin, in the Zhuang Autonomous Region of Guangxi (southern China). She heard about Turkish sand coffee some time ago and finally experienced the real taste of coffee.

As a visitor to the exhibition, Nini watched in amazement as Osan worked his magic, then tasted the resulting drink.

“It has a burnt scent,” Nini said with a thumbs-up. “It looks like a full soup that slides over my tongue when I drink it, then it tastes a bit bitter and sour. After drinking my mouth was soft and my whole throat is very comfortable. The aroma stays in my mouth. palate, and it’s a lovely feeling. It’s very different from other coffees. “

During the four-day exhibition, many buyers and locals came to visit us. Osan said the utensils and coffee cups are selling well. Customers placed orders at the exhibition site, and then the warehouse delivered the goods to their homes.

As he had hoped, he not only received a large number of orders, but also experienced the enthusiasm of the Chinese for this Turkish specialty.

“People don’t know much about this coffee culture, but since the start of the year more and more people have started to learn more about it,” Osan said.

His company often brings utensils to exhibitions and malls to display and brew coffee on location, and many people are captivated by this unique method.

“We have clients in Beijing, Shanghai, Yiwu, Ningbo and elsewhere, and they really like this Turkish style,” he said.

“In addition to coffee, this utensil set can also make milk tea and hot milk. I think this is one of the reasons why it has become more and more popular,” Osan said.

Due to the pandemic, international shipping rates and material costs have increased. However, Osan is not particularly worried. According to him, the Chinese economy is recovering well and high-quality products are still popular in the market.

He said he would continue to import Turkish coffee and promote the culture of sand-brewed coffee in more places across China.
