Seyhan led us up the serpentine streets of Bebek to an unimpressive building Alexis and I would never have found on our own. From the outside, it looked like any ordinary backstreet coffeehouse. The faded lime green stucco façade was punctuated by worn, wooden window frames and over the door hung a crooked hand-scribbled sign with the name of the shop. Few people went in or out, but all of them were well-heeled customers. An odd smell of freshly roasted coffee, mixed with dusty wool and candle smoke wafted out into the street.
