Turkish Coffee is the name given to a type of coffee whose preparation and brewing techniques were invented by the Turks. It has a unique taste, froth, aroma, brewing technique and presentation… In other words it has its own identity and tradition.
Initially this drink was made after boiling the coffee bean, but later on, due to this new method of preparation, coffee revealed its true taste and unique aroma. Europeans, who started drinking coffee because of the Turks, have consumed it prepared this way for many years.
Turkish Coffee is made from high quality Arabica coffee beans from Central America and Brazil that are blended and carefully roasted, then very finely ground. The coffee is mixed with water and the desired amount of sugar and cooked in a "cezve", or Turkish coffeepot. The coffee is served in small porcelain cups. The coffee must be left to stand for a short time after serving to allow the grounds to settle at the bottom of the cup.
The finely ground coffee is boiled at low temperature.
Consumers prefer Turkish coffee for its full flavor and long-lasting aroma.
