Author Notes

I remember times when my mom and my grandmother used to buy green coffee beans and roast them at home, there was the pot specifically for roasting coffee. My grandfather was in charge of freshly-ground every time when coffee was made.
This recipe is how we make in our home, not maybe, but for sure somebody is using a different technique.
It is served in a small cup (espresso size cup) and always served with foam on top.

What You'll Need
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 hipping tsp sugar ( or more, optional )
  • 5 hipping tsp of Turkish coffee (extra fine ground coffee powder consistency)
  1. Bring water and sugar to a boil in an ibrik, dzezva or a small saucepan.
  2. Remove from heat and add coffee.
  3. Return saucepan to heat and allow to come to a boil, gently stir ones or twice and let foam, don't stir anymore, remove from heat.
  4. Put some foam into each cups, pour coffee over and let sit for a couple minutes.
  5. You don't drink the grounds settled on the bottom of the cup.
  6. What you can do, cover the cup with the saucer, swirl, make a wish and turn upside-down, maybe somebody will read your fortune.
