Turkish Coffee

MogoBlog MogoLicious Tasty Tip of the Day: Turkish coffee is always served with water, because a sip of water will allow the person to clear his/her palate before drinking coffee for the best enjoyment. In addition to water, most people like to serve it with a small sweet treat like Turkish delights, chocolate, candy, etc.


    • 3 Turkish coffee cup-sized cups of cold filtered water (1-1/2 cup per cup)
    • 2 heaping tablespoons Turkish Coffee (ground)
    • Sugar – as requested


    1. Place the sugar (if desired), water, and Turkish coffee in metal Turkish coffee pot (Cezve).
    2. Using a small spoon, stir briefly until just combined and place pot on stovetop.
    3. Slowly bring coffee mixture to a boil over medium heat. This will take 3-4 minutes, so keep a close watch.
    4. As the coffee warms, you will see a dark foam building up. Closer to it coming to a boil, using a teaspoon, transfer some of the foam into each of your two Turkish coffee cups. Return coffee pot to stovetop.
    5. As coffee comes to a boil, pour half of the coffee into the cups, over the foam.
    6. Return coffee pot to stovetop and boil the remaining coffee for an additional 15-20 seconds and pour the rest in to the coffee cups to the rim.
    7. Serve with water and Turkish delight.
