Expert Tips
  • First of all, mix the coffee pot before turning on the stove.
  • Do not cook the coffee you put on the stove over high heat. This will cause the coffee to have a bitter taste and lose its foam.
  • The measurements given in the recipe are for one person. You can increase the measurements according to the number of people.
  • Be careful not to stir the coffee too much while cooking. Otherwise, the foam will disperse.
    Transfer the ground Turkish coffee into a jar, put 2 pieces of sugar in the jar, and close the lid tightly. This way, your coffee will last longer.
