Turkish coffee is a unique and aromatic coffee drink that is popular in many parts of the world, especially in the Middle East and Balkans. It is a strong and bold coffee that is brewed with finely ground coffee beans and served unfiltered in a small cup with a bit of sugar. This recipe will teach you how to make Turkish coffee at home using a cezve, a traditional Turkish coffee pot.


  • 1 cup of water
  • 1 tablespoon of finely ground coffee beans (Turkish coffee grind)
  • Sugar to taste

Special equipment

  • Cezve (Turkish coffee pot)
  • Small cups for serving


  1. Begin by filling the cezve with 1 cup of cold water. The amount of water used can be adjusted according to your preference for coffee strength.
  2. Add 1 tablespoon of finely ground coffee beans to the water. Make sure to use a Turkish coffee grind, which is very fine.
  3. Add sugar to taste. Traditionally, Turkish coffee is sweetened with a small amount of sugar, but the amount can be adjusted to your preference.
  4. Place the cezve on the stove and heat on low to medium heat. The coffee should be heated slowly to avoid boiling.
  5. As the coffee heats up, use a spoon to stir the mixture a few times. This helps to distribute the coffee grounds and ensures an even brew.
  6. Once the coffee begins to heat up, a foam will form on top of the mixture. When the foam starts to rise, remove the cezve from the heat.
  7. Allow the foam to settle for a few seconds before returning the cezve to the heat. Repeat this process two or three times until the foam no longer rises.
  8. Once the foam has settled, pour the coffee into small cups, making sure to distribute the foam evenly between the cups.
  9. Serve the coffee hot with a glass of water on the side. The water is used to cleanse the palate between sips of the strong and flavorful coffee.


  • Turkish coffee should be served immediately after brewing. If left to sit, the coffee can become bitter.
  • It is important to use a very fine grind of coffee beans for Turkish coffee. If the coffee is ground too coarsely, it will not brew properly.
  • The amount of sugar used can be adjusted to taste. Traditionally, Turkish coffee is sweetened with a small amount of sugar, but you can add more or less depending on your preference.
