Did you know that the Turkish brewing method was actually the first one ever invented? There are many stories regarding the discovery of the method, so we cannot know for sure if it goes back to 800 B.C. or the 1500's. However, what we do know is that Turks adapted to the method to create the brew that we know and love today, which they called 'kahve'.
The beans would be roasted over fire, ground and boiled. Needless to say, it soon became one of the most popular drinks, and we certainly understand why.
Turkish people are well-known for their merchant skills. They used to export silk, furs, spices and many agricultural products, and the European market was already responsive when they introduced coffee beans. France, Austria and England were amongst the first to enjoy the brew, and soon many Europeans countries adopted the drink into their culture.
Chances are you had a coffee like this before, and if not we highly recommend you try it. You will need an 'ibrik', which is what Turks use, or alternatively you can simply use a saucepan.
List of ingredients (for one cup, please multiply quantities as needed):
-2 tablespoons of finely ground Coffeelink coffee
-220 ml of water (you can use more or less depending on the strength you'd like)
Start by adding your ibrik on the stovetop. Pour the water in and mix with the two tablespoons of of ground coffee. We recommend boiling it on medium heat. After only 5-7 minutes, it will start bubbling, please remove and set aside for 1 minute.
You can now pour it into your cup gently to avoid the grounds making their way into your cup and then sweeten it up to your liking.
All of our coffees can be ground for Turkish coffee, so feel free to browse through our range and find your favourite one :).
