This is excellent to serve guests after a meal, be sure to make it very sweet for first-timers! Traditional turkish coffee cups are espresso sized cups that hold about 3-4 oz. If you want to make more than 4 servings use 1 tsp coffee per serving and 1 turkish coffee cup full of water (3-4 oz.) per serving. Also, don't drink the sediment at the bottom of the cup!

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 4 teaspoons turkish coffee (extremely fine ground coffee)
  • 1 12 cups water
  • 1 teaspoon sugar (medium sweet)
  • sugar (to taste)
