Make Turkish coffee at home and enjoy with a small glass of water.
  • 2 heaped tsp Turkish ground Turkish coffee
  • Sugar (optional - see instructions below)
  • 21/4 cups of water
  1. Add your Turkish coffee to the cezve pot.
  2. Now add your sugar, if using. For sade - no sugar. For orta - 1 tsp sugar. For ┼čekerli - 2 tsp sugar.
  3. Add water to the cezve, filling it to about 1 inch from the top.
  4. Stir your solution a little, but not too much.
  5. Place the cezve on the smallest ring of your hob and heat on the lowest setting. Watch over it, carefully.
  6. When the froth forms and begins to rise and roll over, remove the cezve from the heat. This takes around 7 minutes.
  7. Skim the foam from the top with a teaspoon and share between your two Turkish coffee cups.
  8. Place the cezve back on the heat until your Turkish coffee boils again. This takes 10-15 seconds.
  9. Remove the cezve from the heat and top up your cups.
  10. If you have guests, serve with glass of water and lokum on the side.
