A Turkish Coffee pot like seen below can also be called an ibrik and is a metal pot with a flat bottom, that tapers and then has a long lip on the pot so the coffee can boil up. It also has a long handle that stays cool away from heat. This is a brass pot from Egypt.
A small sauce pan can be used instead, but you will not get the same foam prized in turkish coffee.
Step 1: Gather the Items You Need
You will need several things to make Turkish Coffee:
Dark roast coffee- French or espresso either whole bean, or ground fresh at a very fine setting
A coffee grinder if grinding your own beans
A Turkish coffee pot, or a small sauce pan
This coffee will be cooked stovetop
Step 2: Sugar and Water on the Boil
Cook on high until water starts to boil.
Step 3: A Watch Pot Never Boils- Do This Instead
It will be about 1 TBSP of ground coffee per pot. Grind as fine as possible. With a blade grinder push the grind button two times or more.
Step 4: Add the Coffee
Remove the coffee from heat and add 1 tbsp of coffee and return to boil.
You might have to stir the coffee in order to mix in- this is okay, and most likely needed with a small sauce pan.
Return to heat
Step 5: 1st Boil
Step 7: What Not to Do!
Step 8: Serving
Always serve your guests first, to give them the cup with the prized foam.
Step 9: Grounds Are Normal!
Also you can avoid pouring the last cup to avoid the grounds also known as sludge.
Step 10: Variations
Add 1 or 2 cardamom pods to infuse that flavor
Add more sugar if you like your coffee take your teeth off kind of sweet
Add a dollop of whipped cream
Add a little heavy cream into the coffee to make it creamy
But no matter how you make it, enjoy it with friends or family and serve it with pride and love.
