  • Cezve pot
  • Turkish coffee cups


  • 2 heaped teaspoons ground Turkish coffee
  • sugar optional - see instructions below
  • cups of water


  • Add your Turkish coffee to the cezve pot.
  • Now add your sugar, if using. For sade - no sugar. For orta (az şekerli) - 1 teaspoon sugar. For şekerli - 2 teaspoons sugar.
  • Add water to the cezve, filling it to about 1 inch from the top.
  • Stir your solution a little, but not too much.
  • Place the cezve on the smallest ring of your hob and heat on the lowest setting. Watch over it, carefully.
  • When the froth forms and begins to rise and roll over, remove the cezve from the heat. This takes around 7 minutes.
  • Skim the thick foam from the top with a teaspoon and share between your two Turkish coffee cups.
  • Place the cezve back on medium heat until your Turkish coffee boils again. This takes 10-15 seconds.
  • Remove the cezve from the heat and top up your cups.
  • If you have guests, serve with glass of water and lokum (Turkish Delight) on the side.


  • Calories per cup will be less if you don't use sugar...
  • And more if you serve with Turkish Delight.
