Have you ever tried Turkish Coffee?You must try it.It is delicious and easy to prepare.In this article i will tell you how to prepare it.

Preparing Turkish Coffee

You'll need a special pot (which is named "cezve" in Turkish) to cook Turkish coffee, a real good grinded coffee (ask at the store to grind the coffee as good as possible !) A few coffee cups and refined sugar.

Let's cook four coffee cups from Turkish coffee. Bring in the Turkish pot (“cevze”) 2 little coffee spoons as to each one cup from coffee, and so for our four cups of coffee you'll require to add up eight spoons from coffee. Fill up one coffee cup on cold water and add up them to the pot (for our four cups you'll require to add four cups from cold water). And then generally for each coffee cup you'll need a cup of water.

If you ask for Turkish coffee in Turkey, the waiter will ask you if you want your coffee "sade" (without sugar) "az sekerli" (with a little bit of sugar) or "sekerli" (with more sugar). So according to your taste you will add sugar to the coffee as you prepare it. The normal amount would be 2 small coffee spoons of sugar for each cup of coffee.

So you added : water, coffee and sugar to your Turkish pot “cevze”. Cook the coffee until it boils.

Remove the pot from the fire, mix it and return it again so it boils a second time. Watch out because the coffee can pour over your stove ! The good Turkish coffee is the one that gives foam !

Add the coffee into the coffee cups and serve. As the Turkish coffee contains grounds of coffee, you should drink it very slowly, appreciating the flavor as the coffee ground settle down at the bottom of the cup.

A frequent question is: “When should I stop drinking the coffee ?” You should drink the coffee until you fell the coffee ground on your mouth. As the coffee ground is heavier then the liquid it will settle down at the bottom of the cup.

As soon as you finish drinking the coffee you can begin the “ceremony” of reading the Coffee grounds !
