That awakening aroma filling the house is my favorite part of the morning.
My husband and I love starting our day with a pot of Turkish Coffee. It’s easy and quick to make! Turkish coffee is popular all over the Middle East.
What I love about Turkish coffee is that in Middle Eastern culture, serving it to guests can mean different things. In Palestinian culture, Turkish coffee is served at the end of a visit. It is a polite way to say goodbye to the guest.
There are all types of ways to make Turkish coffee – for weddings, for funerals, after breaking fast during Ramadan, and even in portable amounts to be taken in a large thermos on picnics. Turkish coffee can be served in any occasions.
Remember, this coffee is stronger than any coffee you’ve had. It can surpass the well-known espresso shot that can find at your local coffee shop, because you’re essentially drinking the dissolved coffee grounds straight in your boiled water.
In Arab culture, one cup of Turkish coffee is said to protect your heart from disease. Authentic Turkish pots are made from copper. The coffee is served in small cups. No wonder why we have so much a day!

- ½ cup of water
- 2 tsp Turkish coffee **
- In a small coffee pot, boil half a cup of water on high heat.
- Once water has boiled, lift pot away from heat and add 2 tsp of Turkish coffee. At this point you can also add sugar to taste, but I prefer it without.
- Place the coffee back onto the stove and stir until the coffee dissolves. It will begin to froth. Lift the pot as the coffee froths to the rim. Repeat this action several times, making sure the coffee does not boil over and spill.
- The more you boil and froth, the better it will taste!
- Turn off stove, pour into Turkish coffee cups and enjoy!
- **Turkish coffee can be bought from any Middle Eastern super market. I prefer the medium blend of Al Ameed coffee with cardamom.
