Turkish Coffee 

Turkish coffee or Türk Kahvesi is an intriguing brew method that dates back to the Ottoman Empire. In fact, it fulfilled an essential part in the cultural structure of the Empire. Turkish coffee is considered the oldest form of coffee preparation. Turkish coffee was (and still is) more than a drink it is an historical, social and traditional element. For these reasons, in 2013 UNESCO added Turkish coffee to its list of Intangible Cultural Heritage.

Normally, its name is associated with Turkey, as the Turks knew this magical brewing technique since 1600. Almost 500 years later, Turkish coffee plays an important role in Turkish society; it has become part of their day-to-day life and culture. Today, Turkish coffee is enjoyed all over the world but specially in the Middle East, North Africa, Balkan Peninsula, Caucasus and Eastern Europe.

In only five steps you would be able to prepare this pleasant drink. Just by taking a sip you would be transported to a traditional Istanbul coffeehouse.

You will need:

A long-handled pots made from copper and brass known as ibrik, cezve or a small coffee pot; a spoon; sugar; good quality water; a heat source (stove, gas or electric), fincan cups (traditional Turkish coffee cups) and of course your Cubico Coffee of choice.


1. Grind your Cubico Coffee to an extra fine grind, almost to a powder consistency. If you don’t owned a grind and want to taste Turkish coffee contact us and we will be happy to assist you.
2. Pour fresh cold water to ibrik, cezve or tiny pot and add one heaping teaspoons of grinded Cubico Coffee per cup of water.
3. Add sugar and adjust to taste. Stir all of the ingredients together until the sugar dissolves.
4. Start brewing over a medium to low heat, cook until the coffee comes to a boil. As soon as the coffee comes to a boil remove the ibrik from the heat and let the coffee settle down for a couple of minutes.
5. Put the ibrik back to the heat source and remove it when the coffee starts to boil. This process can be repeated one or two times. Yet, three boils are recommended.
6. Pour the coffee into the fincan cups and enjoy!

After finishing your coffee, don’t wash it right away study the grinds at the bottom. A tradition that is well linked with Turkish coffee is that the coffee grounds left in the cup might tell your fortune. So, what are you waiting for? Your future is just a cup of coffee away.
