Making Turkish Coffee is a historical tradition in Turkish Culture.
Whilst there are many various Coffee Recipes available on-line, most are modified in the traditional
version.

In this article, I will share a conventional way of creating Turkish Coffee.



Tools Needed for Producing Turkish Coffee

Turkish Coffee (ground or whole bean)
Turkish Grinder (should you are utilizing entire beans)
Turkish Pot
Turkish Coffee Cup
Water & sugar if you like it sweet
Teaspoon to measure and stir
If you have the required tools in place, you are ready to start producing Turkish Coffee.


Steps for Creating Turkish Style Coffee

Grind coffee beans:
If you want to make the most delicious Turkish Coffee, you need to grind the beans
before the producing process. This way, you will have fresh ground coffee and the
oil in the beans will not dry due to waiting after grinding process.
To be able to make authentic coffee, the Turkish way,
you need Arabica Beans. Should you can not find an authentic Turkish Coffee Brand
near where you live, you should get a regular pack of Arabica Beans.

Using an authentic Turkish Grinder is important.

Because Turkish style coffee is ground extra fine,
not like other types. Closest fineness to Turkish type of coffee is espresso.
Even espresso is not ground as fine as Turkish. In the event you are in a hurry, and want to save some time, you need to buy ground coffee and pass this step.
But in the event you are not in a rush, you should start with grinding beans
to make the freshest coffee, Turkish way. After you're done with grinding
the beans, remove them from the manual grinder and
move to step two.
Add ingredients into the coffee pot
Use a Turkish style coffee cup, also called as Fincan in Turkish to
measure water first. For one cup of coffee, you need to prepare one cup of regular drinking
water into the coffee pot. After you add the water, add two teaspoons of ground
coffee. Two teaspoons weigh around 0.175 ounces or
5 grams. So, measure if you are not sure how much coffee to put.
Adding sugar is optional. Turkish way of coffee is made in three various ways.
With sugar (means Sekerli in Turkish), medium sugar
(means Orta Sekerli), and without sugar (meaning Sade).
You should put around 1 to 2 teaspoons of sugar maximum.
Should you want medium, try with one teaspoon of sugar
or less. In the event you make it without any sugar, it might taste little
bitter, but for strong coffee lovers, this might be a great taste.
So, choose your preference, and add sugar should you like.

Heat & brew the coffee
Start stirring with your teaspoon on a very low flame stove.
Never use high flame, you should heat and stir slowly.
Some recipes will tell you to add sugar or coffee, or both after heating the water.
You should ignore this advice. Authentic Turkish style coffee is made by putting water, coffee and sugar simultaneously and
by heating at the same time. Whilst heating and stirring, you shouldn't step away from the process.
It can boil very quickly and it might overflow fast.
Making Turkish Style Coffee usually takes 5 to 10 minutes, so you should be patient and keep stirring.
Right before it starts boiling, use your teaspoon to take some of the foam at the top of the pot and add them into
the cups. This is an important step. Quality Turkish Style Coffee should be served with as much foam on it as possible.
So, remember to add some of the foam to the cups before it boils.
After coffee starts boiling, take away the pot from the stove, let it wait for a few seconds and put it on the stove again. You should repeat this process two to three
times. Then, pour it into coffee cups.
Whilst creating Turkish Coffee, you do not filter the
coffee. These small ground particles will sit at the bottom of the cup.
After pouring the coffee in the Turkish Pot into the
cups, you will also see some of these ground particles will stay
in the coffee pot. This is normal, you shouldn't try to put
these into the cup.

Producing Turkish Coffee takes 10 to 15 minutes, but it is an enjoyable process
and good for improving your patience. I hope you will
try this authentic way of creating Turkish Style Coffee.
