|With a Turkish Coffeepot|
It only takes two minutes to prepare Turkish Coffee.
|MEHMET EFENDİ’s original finely ground Turkish Coffee is traditionally prepared in a ’cezve’, a small long-handled pot. For medium-sweet coffee, add one teaspoon full of sugar per cup.|
|Place the cezve on a low heat with one heaped teaspoon of coffee per cupful of water and sugar to taste.|
|Heat slowly, stirring gently until the sugar dissolves.|
|When the coffee begins to froth up, remove from heat, pour a little of the froth into each cup and return to the heat.|
|Let the coffee rise once more – but without letting it come to boil – and serve.|
|Be careful not to stir after serving or you will disturb the sediment and the coffee will taste gritty. Each cup should be frothy and deliciously aromatic.|
|It is customary to serve Turkish Coffee with a glass of water. The water prepares the mouth for the coffee’s flavour.|
When serving a large group, it is best to prepare semi-sweet Turkish Coffee.
