Perfect Turkish Coffee!

Story time!

So first time I got ground Turkish coffee was from Global Village, Dubai. It’s a festival with pavilions of different countries.

I chose the beans and got them to grind it.

Traditionally Turkish coffee is made in special pot (cezve) on hot sand.

Now I don’t exactly remember how I tried to brew it at home but I remember it being an absolute failure. I still have it in a jar in the top shelf of my kitchen where I keep things I don’t use but I find hard to throw away.

Now after all these years I went to Turkey and had the original Turkish coffee from different places and one of those was a cafe, that made it on stove without sand. I was watching carefully, taking mental notes.

And bought a can of ground Turkish coffee from a brand suggested by shop keeper.

Once back here, I have been enjoying intensely flavorful and deeply satisfying cup of Turkish coffee almost every morning.

But it didn’t look like the one I was served in turkey

But today.. was the day..


Looks at that.

A perfect cup of Turkish coffee.

And I made it on stove! Without any machine or sand!

And it passed the authentic taste test with flying colours!

So proud of myself.

  1. Looks inviting! I’ve never had Turkish coffee, but I have had Cuban coffee and it is truly amazingly intense. Only a small 4 ounce cup will keep you awake for awhile. . .and some! If you get a chance try Cuban coffee. Do you know where I can buy Turkish coffee in the U.S.? I’d like to give it a try.


      1. The Cuban coffee I got was at a Cuban restaurant in town, so I am not sure the brand they used. Cafe Bustelo is a popular Cuban style coffee that originated in New York. I have had it and it is very good. However, there is nothing like an actual cup of coffee in a Cuban restaurant. I wish I had asked the name of that brand the Cuban restaurant used. That was a few year back, though and the restaurant closed unfortunately.
        I definitely want to try Turkish coffee.
        Thanks for the link.
