What is Turkish Coffee ?
It is made by brewing very finely ground coffee beans in boiling water. The coffee pulp is not filtered. Turkish Coffee is cooked with a unique cooking equipment, a cezve. Turkish Coffee, which is defined as a cezve or ibrik internationally and is cooked with a heat source under it, has taken its place as the 3rd type of coffee among the world coffees, next to Espresso and Filter coffee.
