Turkish Coffee

Turkish Ibrik is the traditional brewing vessel. The Turkish coffee is usually served with a small glass of water or a piece of Turkish delight. Turkish coffee is never served with milk or cream.

To brew Turkish coffee you need very fine-ground coffee. The portion for Turkish coffee is one heated teaspoon of coffee for each cup of water. A more exquisite taste can be obtained by adding cardamom pods, a stick of cinnamon or aniseed. 

To brew the Turkish coffee fill the ibrik with water, the ground flavoured coffee and sugar. Place the coffee place the ibrik over a low heat and wait for it to boil. When the seething mixture threatens to run over the rim of the Ibrik, quickly remove from heat, stir it, and return to heat. In a moment it will start to boil over, so it must be instantly removed from heat.

When the froth raises to the top the third time, carefully remove the Ibrik from heat.  

Pour the coffee in small Turkish coffee cups and indulge in the Turkish Coffee that is “black as hell, strong as death, and sweet as love!!"
