Coffee is the most universal beverage consumed and 3rd wave coffee stores saw a boom in the last years. Some coffees are introduced to the world later than others. One of them is the marvelous taste of a hot foamy Turkish Coffee. Making a good foamy Turkish Coffee has its own special key points. So, how to make a great Turkish Coffee? Here are some tips to help you understand the ways of making this fantastic taste from the Middle East.
The first rule of making a delicious and foamy Turkish Coffee is to use a fresh coffee indeed. If you have the chance to get your hands on a fine drawn Turkish Coffee, use that one. If not, we recommend you prefer a freshly opened pack. No matter your skill of making a fine Turkish Coffee, you definitely cannot get good results from a stale coffee.
If you have opened the pack of a Turkish Coffee, pay attention to the storage conditions mentioned on the pack. Turkish Coffee has to be stored in a dry and a cool environment. If not storage accordingly, Turkish Coffee’s taste and smell changes drastically.
The water that you use is as important as the coffee you prefer. You need a limeless, chlorine-free freshwater to get good results with your coffee. You also need cold water to get a tempered and foamy Turkish Coffee.
Water-coffee ratio is also crucial. For a single demitasse, you have to add two teaspoons of Turkish coffee. Using this ratio prevents you from doing any mistakes. Remember that a part of your demitasse will consist of coffee grounds and foam so beware of pouring an excessive amount of water. You can adjust the amount of sugar according to your liking.
Yet another rule of making the ideal Turkish Coffee is mixing the coffee homogeneously. After adding the sugar to your liking, mix the coffee for about thirty seconds. You may also choose not to add any sugar. If you are not using a coffee machine and using a brass coffee pot cook your coffee in low heat. Cooking it in high heat may cause outpouring. And don’t forget: do not mix your turkish coffee after you start cooking it.
