Turkish Coffee – Uncovering the Secrets of a Unique Coffee

     Turkish coffee is an unknown issue to many coffee lovers. This thorough article will uncover to you all the necessary information of what it is and how you can make it.

What is Turkish coffee?

There are a few debates about this question among specialists of this hot caffeine beverage. These arguments are mostly separated into two broad categories.
1. Type of ingredient. It is the only powder ground coffee. Roasted beans are ground until a powdery substance comes out of the mill.
2. Making method. Its way of brewing is the first method for coffee preparation in the world. It was invented by the Turks around 1600 AD.

The answer to this question is the combination of both categories. Turkish coffee is a powder type coffee that you brew it in a unique method.

There are many countries in the world that have Turkish coffee as the main caffeine drink in their everyday life. Most of them though, if not all, have changed the original name to resemble mostly their ethnic or region identities. Greek, Serbian, Israeli and Arabic are a few examples.

How can you make Turkish coffee?

The brewing method of Turkish coffee is considered unique. It is the only caffeine beverage that you actually cook it. The liquid must come to a simmer point while brewing. This is the major difference of Turkish coffee to the other brewing methods (Espresso, Drip filtration, French press, etc.). Other dissimilarities include the thick-rich foam on the top and the grounds at the bottom of the cup.

Have also in mind the following small details before you proceed:
• You add sugar in the beginning of its brewing process (if you are going to use).
• This is a black, strong caffeine drink. You make it with water. You don’t serve it with milk on the side.
• You don’t need any spoon in the serving saucer. You don’t stir it because the grounds must settle at the bottom of the cup.

The recipe is simple.

1. First you must have a special coffee pot which is the most suitable utensil to hold the foam that will be created during the process. Then you mix in the pot ground Turkish style coffee (1 full teaspoon per person) with cold water (1 demitasse cup per person) and sugar (optional & depending on taste – usually 1 teaspoon is considered enough).

2. Place the pot on low heat. Stir its contents well and let it cook for a while. Before the liquid reaches the boiling point, remove the pot from the heat. Allow the froth to settle down. Follow this procedure for 2 more times.

3. Divide coffee and foam into demitasse cups. (A failure to produce enough foam for all persons is regarded as a non-successful brewing attempt). Serve with a glass of cold water.

• The glass of water issue is very important during serving. Since this hot caffeine drink is strong and bitter, water will clean your palate and will prepare the mouth for the maximum flavor.

• If you want to show professionalism in serving then you can accompany it with Turkish delights (small pieces of soft, sugar dusted candies with gummy texture).
