A zine about connecting through a cup of Turkish coffee.

“Şafak” takes readers into Hilal’s early childhood memories, accompanying her mother to gatherings with friends. As an adult, she reflects on these moments, understanding the depth of conversations and the value of female bonding. The women gathered regularly, with Turkish coffee playing a central role in their meetings. They take time to ask each other meaningful questions, delving deeper into themselves and their shared experiences. The memory of these gatherings, captured in her book “Şafak,” aims to evoke a sense of nostalgia, filled with the warmth of connection, the aroma of Turkish coffee, and shared moments.
