Making coffee requires some experience. I have made Turkish coffee for years and I am confident about it. I want to share my recipe to make Turkish coffee. Firstly, you should know how you like your coffee and adjust your own quantities. Everyone have liked my coffee so far, or they have not had the brass to say the opposite!
For anybody who is not very fond of coffee, you should use less coffee compared to my recipe. I will tell you how to make medium-sugar and foamy Turkish coffee. If you want sugared Turkish coffee, double the sugar amount and if you want sugar-free, black coffee, halve it.
How to Make Foamy Turkish Coffee?
Everyone can make coffee, but not all of them becomes foamy. Making foamy Turkish coffee is, in fact, easy. Let’s begin.
I will tell how to make coffee for 1 person. You can adjust the amounts according to the number of serving.
A Turkish coffee cup of water (don’t fill to overflowing)
2 teaspoon of granulated sugar
2 heaping teaspoons of coffee
Firstly, add water to the coffee cup (to adjust the water amount, use the Turkish coffee cup that you will give to your guest). Then, add sugar, stir well. Add coffee, don’t stir and cook the mixture without stirring at low heat. Coffee particles will sink to the bottom. During the sinking of coffee particles, stir the mixture once with a teaspoon – keep the stirring duration short. If you stir for a long time, the coffee will not be foamy. When the coffee begins to heating up, remove the foam from the surface with a teaspoon. Pour the foam into the Turkish coffee cups. Then, without boiling, turn off the heat when foaming occurs again, as seen in the photo. Pour the coffee into the cups and your Turkish coffee is ready.
If you follow this guide, your coffee will be perfect and foamy. There will be coffee ground at the bottom as well, thus you can tell your own Turkish coffee fortune 🙂 I will remind you once more: Be careful, no stirring after adding ground coffee, wait for coffee ground to settle. I’ve learnt this from a friend. She used to make delicious coffee. From that day on, I have learnt how to make Turkish coffee.
I recommend you to serve coffee with bitter chocolate or Turkish delight with hard consistency.
