We love our Ibik
Turkish coffee was first introduced into Turkey around 1540 or so. History tells us that it was introduced by the Turkish Governor of Yemen – Ozdemir Pasha. Wisely, he made sure to bring it to the attention of the Sultan, Suleiman the Magnificent. Learn more…
As all good cooks will tell you, “mise en place”. This means to have all your equipment and ingredients gathered and ready to begin!
What you will need:
3 Turkish coffee cup-sized cups of cold filtered water 1 1/2 cup per cup
2 heaping tablespoons Turkish Coffee ground
Sugar – as requested
1 Cardamom pod if desired
Ibik or small saucepan
Place the sugar and cardamom pod(if desired), water, and Turkish coffee in metal Turkish coffee pot (Ibik).
Using a small spoon, stir briefly until just combined and place pot on stovetop.
Slowly bring coffee mixture to a boil over medium heat. This will take 3-4 minutes, so keep a close watch.
As the coffee warms, you will see a dark foam building up. Closer to it coming to a boil, using a teaspoon, transfer some of the foam into each of your two Turkish coffee cups. Return coffee pot to stovetop.
As coffee comes to a boil, pour half of the coffee into the cups, over the foam.
Return coffee pot to stovetop and boil the remaining coffee for an additional 15-20 seconds and pour the rest in to the coffee cups to the rim.
You now have the perfect Turkish Coffee!
