Something I love about Turkey- Turkish Coffee
Hot, frothy and bitter, there is nothing like a Turkish coffee. Served in a little cup, with its grounds at the bottom, Turkish coffee is an after lunch tradition found all over this country.
Turkish coffee is not the easiest thing to make, there is a skill required to making it, because it needs to have the froth on the top. It can be very tedious, and often boils over and makes a big mess all over your stove top.
In our house, Turkish coffee had been something that we rarely drank, none of us could make it that well. However, this week we bought this wonderful (but expensive) machine that you put all the ingredients into (water, super finely ground coffee and sugar) into and it does the rest. No boiling over, perfect froth every time.
Today, when I got home from work, Seyfi's dad had already made himself two cups of coffee, and then he made me a cup (this is a very special occasion considering that he is a fairly traditional Turkish man). I think he loves the machine...
