The mill at the Selamlique factory in Izmir can cut a single Brazilian coffee bean into 35 thousand pieces. These are green-hued beans harvested from Arabica trees that grow on plateaus and hills 800 meters above sea level. Compared to Robusta beans, they have a stronger flavour, and less acidity and caffeine. Before being extra finely grinded for Turkish coffee, the beans go through a multi-stage process that requires rigorous care and skill. The time needed for them to reach the ideal colour, taste and smell is determined (for Selamlique coffee this is usually around 180 Celsius and 20 minutes), the beans are cooled on a tray immediately after roasting to stop the cooking process, and rested for 12 hours before grinding. Humidity of the room is kept under control, contact with foreign objects and smells is strictly prohibited, and samples are analysed during the whole process. The grinded beans are packaged in boxes that preserve their purity, either directly or after being blended with mastic, cardamon or cinnamon; they are now ready to be brewed using a cezve, Turkish coffee pot, or a coffee maker.

Turkish coffee works well with different flavours, and can be blended without losing its signature taste, which leads to brand new discoveries. Selamlique products range from dark roast, traditional and decaf to flavoured coffees – carefully selected and skilfully processed beans blended with cinnamon and cardamon from Southeast Asia or mastic from the Aegean – and offer appetizing choices for those adventurous enough to try new blends.
