Steps for Making Turkish Style Coffee
Grind coffee beans:
If you want to make the most delicious Turkish Coffee, you need to grind the beans before the creating process. This way, you will have fresh ground coffee and the oil in the beans will not dry due to waiting after grinding process. To be able to make authentic coffee, the Turkish way, you need Arabica Beans. Should you can not find an authentic Turkish Coffee Brand near where you live, you should get a regular pack of Arabica Beans. Making use of an authentic Turkish Grinder is important. Because Turkish style coffee is ground extra fine, not like other types. Closest fineness to Turkish type of coffee is espresso. Even espresso is not ground as fine as Turkish. If you are in a hurry, and want to save some time, you need to buy ground coffee and pass this step. But in the event you are not in a rush, you should start with grinding beans to make the freshest coffee, Turkish way. After you might be done with grinding the beans, remove them in the manual grinder and move to step two.
Add ingredients into the coffee pot
Use a turkish coffee maker style coffee cup, also called as Fincan in Turkish to measure water first. For one cup of coffee, you need to prepare one cup of regular drinking water into the coffee pot. After you add the water, add two teaspoons of ground coffee. Two teaspoons weigh around 0.175 ounces or 5 grams. So, measure in the event you are not sure how much coffee to put. Adding sugar is optional. Turkish way of coffee is made in three various ways. With sugar (means Sekerli in Turkish), medium sugar (means Orta Sekerli), and without sugar (meaning Sade). You should put around 1 to 2 teaspoons of sugar maximum. In the event you want medium, try with one teaspoon of sugar or less. Should you make it without any sugar, it might taste little bitter, but for strong coffee lovers, this might be a great taste. So, choose your preference, and add sugar should you like.
Heat & brew the coffee
Start stirring with your teaspoon on a very low flame stove. Never use high flame, you should heat and stir slowly. Some recipes will tell you to add sugar or coffee, or both after heating the water. You should ignore this advice. Authentic Turkish style coffee is made by putting water, coffee and sugar simultaneously and by heating at the same time. While heating and stirring, you shouldn't step away in the process. It can boil very quickly and it might overflow fast. Creating Turkish Style Coffee usually takes 5 to 10 minutes, so you should be patient and keep stirring. Right before it starts boiling, use your teaspoon to take some of the foam at the top of the pot and add them into the cups. This is an important step. Quality Turkish Style Coffee should be served with as much foam on it as possible. So, remember to add some of the foam to the cups before it boils. After coffee starts boiling, take away the pot from the stove, let it wait for a few seconds and put it on the stove again. You should repeat this process two to three times. Then, pour it into coffee cups.
Whilst creating Turkish Coffee, you do not filter the coffee. These small ground particles will sit at the bottom of the cup. After pouring the coffee in the Turkish Pot into the cups, you will also see some of these ground particles will stay in the coffee pot. This is normal, you shouldn't try to put these into the cup.
Creating Turkish Coffee takes 10 to 15 minutes, but it is an enjoyable process and good for improving your patience. I hope you will try this authentic way of creating Turkish Style Coffee.
