Facts You Should Know About Turkish Coffee.

To Make a really delicious, authentic frothy Turkish coffee is a skill that not everyone can master. The Turks found the Turkish coffee back in the 16th century, and it has been in the Turkish culture for over 450 years. For example, when a young couple has fallen in love, and made the decision to spend the rest of their lives together, the male must tell his family that they are going to the females parents house and ask for the girls hand in marriage. This is the hard part for the male, but it is not all one sided. The girl has to impress the boys parents with a fine authentic Frothy Turkish Coffee on her own, for them to then ask for her hand in marriage. It is also used for fortunes to be read. They must drink the coffee, and right at the end there is stil some thick coffee left in it. Once this is present, you must turn the cup over and wait for it to go cold. Once it is cold, a very skillful person can read your fortune! Many Hotels Promote this fine Turkish delicacy by having a turkish coffee stand in the lobby with a waiter dressed in traditional attire serving fine Turkish coffee.

How Is It Made?

The thing that makes Turkish coffee different from other coffees is its cup. It can only be used for Turkish coffee. There is also an instrument that can be used only for turkish coffee which is called a cezve. You must pour a turkish coffee cup of water in the cezve, plus a teaspoon of very fine coffee, and the amount of sugar you require: for little sugar half a teaspoon, fair amount of sugar 1 teaspoon, for a sweet turkish coffee a teaspoon and a half. You must put this on a very low heat for it to froth, which should take a good 10 minutes minimum. Then, once it has frothed you must take away from the heat 2-3 times. Once you have done this, the coffee is ready to be served. First, you must only fill up to half of the coffee cup.this is so froth in the cup can be formed. Then, you must pour the remainder in the cezve into the cup after 20-30 seconds. The bit at the bottom is called Telve. It should not be consumed.

How Should It Be Served?

A Turkish Coffee is served with a glass of water to clean the palette to enjoy the exquisite taste of a fine Turkish Coffee.
