Turkish

Traditional Recipe

Ingredients:

  • Freshly roasted Turkish coffee beans (medium grind)
  • Water
  • Sugar (optional)

    Equipment:

    • Ibrik (a small copper or brass pot with a long handle)
    • Stovetop or hot plate
    • Spoon
    • Demitasse cups

      Instructions:

      1. Add one demitasse cup of cold water for each cup of coffee you want to make into the ibrik.
      2. Add one teaspoon of coffee per demitasse cup into the ibrik. If you like your coffee sweeter, add sugar to taste.
      3. Stir the mixture gently to combine.
      4. Place the ibrik on the stovetop or hot plate and heat over medium heat.
      5. As the coffee begins to heat up, foam will start to form on the surface. Use the spoon to scoop some of the foam off and set it aside in a separate cup.
      6. Continue to heat the coffee until it comes to a boil. As soon as it boils, remove the ibrik from the heat and pour a small amount of the coffee into each demitasse cup, filling them about one-third full.
      7. Return the ibrik to the heat and wait until the coffee comes to a boil again. Remove from heat, let the foam settle and pour the remaining coffee into the cups.
      8. Serve immediately with the foam spooned on top.
