  • In Turkey, when you go to somebody’s house, the first question isn’t if you want to drink Turkish coffee, but rather how you would like to have your Turkish coffee prepared.
  • By now, your host is asking about the amount of sugar you would like to have in your coffee.
  • To answer the question, you may say “sade” which means no sugar; “az seker” which means very little sugar; “orta” which means with 1-2 teaspoons of sugar; or “sekerli” which means with 3-4 teaspoon sugar.

Tips for serving Turkish Coffee:

  • You will need filtered water, Turkish coffee, cezve (a special wide bottom pot, usually made of copper), Turkish coffee cups, and sugar.
  • Always use cold, filtered water.
  • To measure the amount of water for each cup, use the coffee cup you are going to use, rather than a standard measuring cup.
  • Remember Turkish Coffee is served in small Demitasse (French for Half Coffee Cup) / Espresso Size cups of approx. 45 ml of liquid per cup.
  • Turkish coffee is much more finely ground than regular coffee.
  • For each cup of coffee, use a heaped Teaspoon of finely ground coffee.
  • Slowly bring it to a boil over medium heat. This will take about 3-4 minutes, so keep a close eye on it. As the coffee warms, you will see a dark foam building up.
  • This dark foam is very important. It is customary and important to serve Turkish coffee with foam on top. Closer to it coming to a boil, using a teaspoon, transfer some of the foam into each of your Turkish coffee cups. Return coffee pot to stovetop. As coffee comes to a boil, pour half of the coffee into the cups, over the foam.
  • Return coffee pot to stovetop and boil the remaining coffee for an additional 15 to 20 seconds and pour the rest into the coffee cups, filling them to the rim.
  • Turkish coffee is always served with water because a sip of water will allow the person to clear his/her palate before drinking coffee for the best enjoyment. In addition to water, most people like to serve it with a small sweet treat like Turkish delights, chocolate, candy, etc.
  • When it comes to serving Turkish coffee, it is important to start with the eldest guest in the room. It is a sign of respect to acknowledge their age and considered disrespectful not to do so.
