Things that every coffee enthusiast should experience while in Cyprus

Many people travel to Cyprus to experience its ancient sites like the Kourion, old castles and stunning views. But what many don’t know is that Cyprus has a lot to offer for the coffee lover. In this article, we’ll tell you about the unique Cypriot way of brewing coffee which is based on old, ancient traditions.

After that, we’ll go over some of the most popular coffee shops in Cyprus.

Let’s get to it!

What’s Special about Cypriot Coffee?

We normally recommend bringing your own coffee gear when you travel such as the Wacaco Minipresso. BUT when you’re on Cyprus you should definitely give your kit a break, and try the local coffee instead.

Cypriot coffee is different from the usual coffee you’d get in Europe. It’s brewed based on old principles and traditions. This includes using small copper pots called ‘Mbrikia’ to brew delicious coffee made from Brazilian coffee beans. This results in a delicious but strong coffee, which they serve with a glass of water.

At the bottom of the cup, a thick layer of coffee remains will form. This is not something that you should drink, but it has another use. Fortune tellers have been, and are still using the remains as a way of predicting the future. Whether you believe in this or not, it’s actually a fun experience to have a fortune teller predict your future like this on your vacation. Definitely, something I’d recommend trying!

If you want to try brewing Cypriot coffee from home, I can recommend watching the YouTube video found here.
