Creating Turkish Coffee is a historical tradition in Turkish Culture.

Although you'll find numerous distinct Coffee Recipes available
on-line, most are modified from the conventional version.

Within this article, I'll share a conventional way of creating Turkish Coffee.

Tools Needed for Creating Turkish Coffee

Turkish Coffee (ground or whole bean)
Turkish Grinder (if you are using complete beans)
Turkish Pot
Turkish Coffee Cup
Water & sugar if you like it sweet
Teaspoon to measure and stir
Should you have the required tools in place, you might be ready to start creating Turkish Coffee.

Steps for Making Turkish Style Coffee

Grind coffee beans:
If you want to make the most delicious Turkish Coffee, you need
to grind the beans before the creating 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. If you can not find an authentic Turkish Coffee Brand near where you
live, you should get a regular pack of Arabica Beans. Making use of 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 if you are not in a rush, you should start with grinding beans to make
the freshest coffee, Turkish way. After you are done with grinding
the beans, remove them in 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 distinct 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.
In the event you want medium, try with one teaspoon of sugar or less.
If 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 if 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. While heating and stirring, you shouldn't step away from the process.

It can boil very quickly and it might overflow fast. Producing 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.
While producing 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.

Creating 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 making Turkish Style Coffee.

Enjoy your delicious cup of Turkish Coffee - Bon Appetite
