Turkish Coffee

Brewing the perfect cup of Turkish coffee is exceptional in taste, body, aroma, preparation and presentation. ¬†Turkish coffee was invented by the Ottomans hundreds of years ago and remains one of the best coffees around to this day. Starbucks does not even come close to this extra-fine grind. ¬†The preparation I’m sharing today comes all the way from Turkey, from a dear friend who has walked me through the steps on how to make the perfect cup of coffee.

Turkish coffee starts with a very fine grind. ¬†It’s ground as fine as confectioner’s sugar and makes for a very smooth body taste. ¬†The remaining powder settles at the bottom of the cup.

Coffee enthusiasts all agree that that Turkish coffee is the way to go. ¬†Did you know that the the word ‘coffee’ is derived from the Turkish work ‘kahve’. ¬†Turkish coffee is a drink for real coffee enthusiasts and lovers. ¬†It’s for those who truly know and understand the flavor of the coffee itself.

    Just an amazing article on such a luscious beverage. I have moved away from the traditional drip version as it just doesn’t cut it. The flavor is not there. I use a JuraCapresso Z5 machine that pulls a decent brew. Highly recommended machine for the flavor unfortunately the 3k price point a number of years back is too much for most. Any good URLs for places to buy the recommended Turkish brew? Thanks Gary

    Wow, your pics are amazing! I have been lucky enough to try traditionally prepared Turkish coffee, and it is amazing as you describe. I have never attempted making it at home, as I always figured it was too much prep – but this sounds completely doable! Project for the new year ūüôā
