Turkish coffee is really simple to prepare. I usually purchase Turkish coffee from a specialized store since it tastes like the one I make at home, but any sort of coffee would do. It’s important to grind it as finely as possible. You’ll need an ibrik or a tiny metal cup that can be heated on the stove, as well as water. Here is all you need to know about how to prepare Turkish coffee on the stove.
Steps to make Turkish coffee on the stove
It is incredibly simple to make Turkish coffee. Simply follow these steps:
Fill the ibrik or cup halfway with water and bring it to a boil. Turn off the heat when the water reaches a boil. If you have a gas stove, simply turn it off. If you have an electric stove, remove the ibrik from the heat for the time being.
Pour a level teaspoon of coffee into the pot for each espresso-sized cup and stir. If you want your coffee sweet, add the sugar before the coffee. When you stir, you should see a lovely layer of coffee froth on the surface. Place the ibrik on top of the range and, if using a gas stove, turn it to low heat.
This is critical: rapidly bring the coffee back to a boil. It will begin to rise and pour out of the pot, so turn off the heat immediately or remove it from the range if using an electric burner. Pour the coffee into the glasses right away.
Turkish coffee is typically served in elegant glasses similar to espresso cups. Coffee is frequently served with a cube of sugar or other sweets. After you’ve finished your coffee, flip the cup over to read your fortune. It’s a common activity after a cup of Turkish coffee!
Important points of brewing coffee
Water constitutes 98 percent of a cup of brewed coffee, thus it is important to treat it seriously. We recommend using filtered water since good quality water is an important step in making good coffee. Common domestic water filters are a low-cost and simple solution to obtain high-quality brewing water in the home. The temperature of your water is also vital to consider. The Specialty Coffee Association suggests preparing coffee with water that is between 195 and 205 degrees Fahrenheit.
This word refers to the interaction between water and coffee grounds. A delicate, gradual trickle of water creates little turbulence, but a violent pour creates a lot of turbulence. Different brewing procedures will necessitate varying amounts of turbulence, including, in some circumstances, manually agitating your brew bed. As a general guideline, keep turbulence low in order to maintain consistency from brew to brew and to avoid kicking up excessive fines, which can settle all together and have a clogging effect on water as it flows through your brew bed.
The grind size is our final variable, but it has the most impact on your brew. More surface area is exposed for water to come in and extract from when coffee is ground. This means that a finer grind, in general, exposes more surface area and allows for more extraction. Coarse grinding, on the other hand, lowers the surface area exposed and hence results in less extraction.
If your coffee tastes bitter, strong, chalky, or similar, it is most likely over-extracted, which may be remedied by coarsening the grind. If your coffee tastes weak, acidic, salty, or otherwise unappealing, it is most certainly under-extracted. In this situation, finer grinding will aid in extracting more.
If your coffee takes longer than expected to finish brewing, or if the brew bed becomes “blocked up” and refuses to allow water pass through, the grind is probably too fine. If the brew is overly rapid, the grind may be too coarse.
Extraction is the process by which water comes into contact with coffee and “extracts” substances from the grinds. This procedure necessitates contact between water and coffee, but it also requires time. In general, the longer these two remain in touch, the more extraction will occur. To some extent, you can adjust contact time by pouring more slowly or fast.
