This past weekend we were in Paducah, Kentucky. I was looking for a new coffee shop to try since I am always on the lookout for great coffee.
In the old CocaCola bottling plant I found Pipers Tea & Coffee. It is a cute little coffee shop tucked into the side of the historic building. The staff was friendly and the coffee smelled delicious even outside the building.
I spotted Turkish coffee on the menu and decided to give it a try. Turkish coffee has long been on my coffee radar but I’ve never gotten around to trying it. Now I am so glad I did!
Their Turkish coffee is made with cardamom which gives it just that little spicy kick. They hand brew this with an artisan touch and I found it to be the best cup of coffee I have ever tasted. I even went back on Sunday morning for another cup. I can’t say enough good things about this coffee and the staff who brews it. Just excellent!
Turkish coffee is not for the faint of heart. It is rich, bold and comes with a thick sludge in the bottom of the cup. But if you love rich coffee then this might just be a great drink for you to try. And if you find yourself in Paducah, check out Pipers at 3121 Broadway Street.
