The Steps to Make Turkish Coffee

• Add the sugar first. Now the amount totally depends on your preference. However, Natasha’s Café recommends that you use more than one teaspoon of sugar for an 8-ounce cezve.

• Fill up the cezve with water up to point where the neck starts. Since the mixture will expand as it is heated later on, it is important not to fill up the cezve with water or else it might overflow.

• Add the fine coffee grounds. As you would notice, there is no need to use coffee filters during the preparation process. This is also what makes Turkish coffee unique.

Furthermore, it is important not to stir the mixture; that will be done in a later time. For now, let the coffee grounds float on the water.

**Note: this is one of the most important steps to make turkish coffee

• Place the cezve on top of a heat source, like a stove. Use low to medium heat. After a few minutes, the mixture will start to foam and rise.

Foam will start to grow and surround the floating coffee. When the mixture is almost touching the top of the cezve, remove it from the heat source and let it cool down.

• Once you remove the cezve from the heat source, stir the mixture. Once the foam subsides, place the cezve on top of the heat source again.

• The foam will start to rise quickly this time. When it almost reaches the top, remove the cezve from the heat source and let the foam subside again.

• Repeat this process one or two more times. Do not stir the mixture anymore.

**Note: while this is the last steps to make turkish coffee, people usually repeat it at least twice to enjoy a more flavorful turkish coffee

Finally, you may now consume the Turkish coffee. Some love the foam on top of the coffee, while others do not. If you want to consume the foam, remove it from the coffee with a spoon and distribute it evenly among the cups that you will serve.

Then pour the coffee onto each cup. Be warned though, that since coffee filters are not used while preparing the coffee, there might be coffee grounds at the bottom of your cup.

Be sure to warn your guests as well, especially if they’re not familiar with Turkish coffee. Nevertheless, Turkish coffee is very delicious and you and your guests will surely enjoy it.
