7- Turkish Coffee
Turkish coffee is one of the coffee varieties that is loved by many and has an important place in our culture. Although it is not very easy to make compared to other methods, people who have set their heart on Turkish Coffee do not end their camp without enjoying Turkish Coffee by enduring all kinds of difficulties. So, what should you pay attention to when making Turkish Coffee at the camp?
Everyone has an idea about how Turkish Coffee is made. The first factor you should pay attention to while making Turkish Coffee at the camp is the fever level. As you know, Turkish Coffee is a beverage that is cooked over low heat. Therefore, if you want your coffee to be delicious, you should avoid brewing at high temperatures. Use fresh coffee and prepare the coffee-water ratio very well. For 1 cup of coffee, you should put 2 teaspoons of Turkish coffee in the cezve. If you measure the water of the coffee with a cup, you will prevent possible mistakes. Remember that the grounds and foam will fill part of your cup when the coffee is cooked, and stick to the ratio.
After adding your coffee to the coffee pot, mix it for 30 seconds. Then leave the coffee on the fire to brew. After it starts to foam, remove the coffee pot from the fire and put it on the fire again. Repeat this process several times in a short time (without overflow). You can now serve your coffee. Enjoy your meal!
