Having Turkish coffee at my friend Flora's house
Lighthearted fortune telling is a fun part of drinking Turkish coffee. We like to look for patterns and images on the walls of these tiny cups, anything that might resemble faces, birds, roads and valleys.
Here's Flora's recipe for kofe/soorj:
2 heaping teaspoons powdered roast coffee
2 cups water (small-size coffee cups)
1 teaspoon sugar, may be adjusted to your liking
- In a small pot with a long handle combine finely powdered coffee, cool water and sugar. stir well.
- Place the pot on medium heat and bring to a boil, watch closely as the coffee starts to rise in the pot and foam, remove the pot from heat and pour into each cup and serve.
