How do I make a Turkish coffee?

Turkish coffee is a traditional method of coffee preparation that involves brewing very finely ground coffee beans with water in a special pot called a cezve. Here's a basic recipe for making Turkish coffee:


  • 1 cup of cold water
  • 1 heaping tablespoon of finely ground Turkish coffee
  • Sugar (optional)


  1. Measure 1 cup of cold water into the cezve (Turkish coffee pot) and place it on the stove over medium heat.
  2. Add 1 heaping tablespoon of finely ground Turkish coffee to the water and stir to combine.
  3. If desired, add sugar to taste (Turkish coffee is traditionally sweetened).
  4. Heat the coffee slowly, stirring occasionally, until it begins to foam and rise up in the cezve. Do not let it boil over.
  5. Remove the cezve from the heat and allow the foam to settle.
  6. Return the cezve to the heat and let it foam up again.
  7. Repeat the process of heating and settling the coffee a few times until the foam turns a golden-brown color.
  8. Pour the coffee into a small cup and serve immediately.

Note: Turkish coffee is usually served with a glass of water to cleanse the palate. It's also traditional to serve Turkish coffee with a small sweet treat like a Turkish delight or a piece of baklava.
