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…

Step 1

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

Step 2

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!
