How to Make Turkish Coffee
You’ll need cold, filtered water to make Turkish coffee. To measure the amount of water, you use the coffee cup, not a measuring cup. You will use approximately 1.5 cups (coffee cups) of water for every cup of coffee you make. Turkish coffee is very dense, so generally, you will only drink one cup of coffee.
- The very first thing you’ll add (if your guests prefer it) is sugar. You’ll add sugar and the coffee and mix together. For every one cup of coffee, a large tablespoon of coffee grounds will be mixed in.
- Turkish coffee is very fine and does not need a filter.
- Stir the sugar (optional), coffee and water together until dissolved.
- Bring the liquid to a boil. Scoop some of the froth off the top and place some in each coffee cup. Froth is another tradition.
- Allow the coffee to boil and then pour coffee into each coffee cup, about half way.
- Allow remaining coffee to boil for no more than 30 seconds and pour the rest into the cups, up to the top.
How to Serve Turkish Coffee
Traditionally, Turkish coffee is made for the guests by the host’s youngest girl. But if you are making it for your guests and are not too concerned about following tradition, you need only ask them how they prefer their coffee. It is important to know if they take sugar because that is the very first ingredient.
To serve Turkish coffee following tradition, you will serve the oldest guest first and you will serve coffee with water and something sweet like chocolate.
A non-traditional way to drink Turkish coffee includes adding cream.
Turkish coffee is not for the faint of heart. But for a coffee connoisseur, a Turkish Coffee Pot is a lot of fun.
