Turkish coffee arrived in Istanbul in the 16th century via Yemen, when an Ottoman governor could not resist its velvety deliciousness. It is usually brewed in a cezve - a small long handled pot, typically made of copper or brass - and consists of coffee ground to a fine powder combined with water and spices. Brought just to the point of a slow careful boil, it is cooked unfiltered and served "grounds in the cup". This rich velvety coffee may be called by a different name3, and contain different spices1 depending on the nationality of the preparer. If you love a rich, strong, concentrated, and caffeinated brew this is the coffee preparation for you! Below are directions for preparing a Turkish style coffee followed by a wonderful Turkish coffee cocktail recipe for those of you so inclined. Enjoy!
