Traditional Turkish Coffee

  1. Mix the Turkish coffee and water in a Turkish coffee pot (cezve) until well combined. You can use a small saucepan as well.
  2. The ratio for delicious Turkish coffee is one coffee cup of cold water and one heaped teaspoon of Turkish coffee.
  3. You can make your coffee with sugar. If you want your coffee sweet, add an adequate amount of sugar into the coffee and water. Never add the sugar after your coffee is cooked. Depending on your taste, for less sweet coffee add ¼ teaspoon sugar, for medium add ½ teaspoon sugar and for sweet add 1 teaspoon sugar.
  4. Put the coffee pot on your smallest burner and bring to a boil on the lowest heat.
  5. While it’s cooking, slowly stir it from time to time. The important thing is that traditional Turkish coffee must have a thick foam, so when you stir it you should avoid stirring fast in order to keep the foam.
  6. When the sides of the coffee start to rise, remove your cezve from the heat immediately and apportion one-third of the coffee to the cups with the foam.
  7. Put back the cezve on the heat for the second boil and again apportion the second third of the coffee and repeat again for a third and final time.
  8. The traditional Turkish coffee is always served with a glass of water to clean your mouth before drinking your coffee. The other traditions are serving with a small cup of liqueur or Turkish delight. Enjoy your coffee and don’t forget to close your cup for the fortune teller😜!

Lazy Turkish Coffee (without cooking)

  1. Add the Turkish coffee to the glass and pour the boiling water into it.
  2. Let it sit for about 30-40 seconds and start to stir and count until 100. Your coffee is ready to drink. Enjoy!
