Turkish Coffee – recipe

A recipe for

I found this in an old accounts book of my dads,(long passed away) not sure where its from, but he certainly had the gear to make it, I think it dates back to the 1950s. When turkish became very fashionable

A copper coffeepot with a long handle and without a lid should be used…the coffee should be served in very small Turkish coffee cups

For four small cups use the following quantities:

Begin to boil 4 cups of water in your pot

Add six lumps of sugar

Add 4 teaspoons of coffee to the boiling water and sugar

Stir until the mixture comes to the boil and is frothy

Remove from the heat to allow the froth subside, then replace the pot on the heat and boil again

Repeat this operation 4 times

Pour a little coffee into each cup and divide the froth amongst the cups

If you want to serve in larger cup then increase the amount of coffee to a desert spoon per cup.

Hey cool fashionable coffee from the 50s before Nescafe took the day.
