Turkish Coffee, Revisited

I recently posted a step-by-step guide to making the perfect cup of Turkish coffee.  This is a method my father taught me which produces fantastic results every single time.

However, upon viewing the post my father was unhappy to see that the picture I posted did not show the coffee's wesh (foamy top layer) as I had taken too long to take the picture and the wesh had dissolved.  Since as I had mentioned, we take our coffee very seriously over here, he insisted that I take another picture (and he made it himself this time)...

So, without any further ado, here are some updated pictures....

The coffee slowly rising up the kanaka (don't let it overflow!):

And finally, the star of the show, here is the coffee with a proper wesh.  I have to admit it tasted even better when my father made it...

  1. I can testify to the importance of a "perfect" cup of Turkish coffee...

  2. Mmm in my family that is called "Greek coffee", hahahaha. Regardless of name, it is the best coffee ever. Do you ever try to read your fortune in the dregs?

  3. Lovely wesh, and lovely cups too!

  4. MMMMMMMM,...Nirvana! Your Turkish coffee looks divine!! Lovely & appetizing pictures as well!
