Turkish Coffee....

Ingredients

Coffee (pulverized) 1 teaspoon
Sugar 1 teaspoon
Water 1 cup

Procedure

Measure coffee and sugar into a cezve(long - handleed pot for making Turkish coffee). Add water; stir.
Heat over low heat until it is frothy on surface; do not boil.
Pour frothy part into demitasse.
Place cezve over heat. Bring to rising boil.
Pour some more liquid into demitasse again.
Heat once more to rising boil.
Pour all into demitasse.
Serve hot.

*Regional Characteristics : Turkish coffee is made of finely pulverized roasted coffee beans. Roasting duration differ according to taste. Coffee is sold etiher as green, or roasted beans or in pulverized form in small shops called "Kuru Yemisçi" which means a person who sells all kinds of nuts. Dried fruits. Candy bars, bon-bons. Coffee varieties, alcoholic drinks and miscellaneous. In old houses a brass-made hand manupulated coffee mill would be used to pulverize coffee beans. An electrical coffee mill is used instead of brasss-coffee millat present time in many households. Turkish coffee is prepared in 4 ways.

"Az Sekerli" means coffee has little sugar about 1/2 teaspon.
"Orta Sekerli" means coffee has standart amount of sugar 1 teaspoon.
"Çok Sekerli" means coffee has more sugar than enough which is 1/2 teaspoons.
"Sade Kahve" means black coffee, without sugar.

Turkish coffee is served in demitasses made of porcelain.
They come in different sizes. However, an average demitasse is equal to 1/4 cup in volume.

Coffee is served for guests with bon-bon, candy bar or with "Lokum" (Turkish Delights) or with chocolate bars. It is served usually during midday or following a lunch or dinner.

There is an old saying about coffee which goes like this. "Bir fincan kahvenin ky´rk yy´l haty´ry´ vardy´r" meaning that if one has been offered a demitasse of coffe, he is obliged for forty years to the one who offered the coffe.

It means that the person who offers the coffe is to be respected, honoured, and remembered for a long time for the sake of his coffee offering.

Re: TURKISH COFFEE

I add a few Green Cardamom with the coffee with the water and coffee (best to grind the seeds but you can just crush them), this gives it a very nice aroma, a more Arabic kind of twist to it.
