Turkish Coffee

When I was much younger I got to visit Germany and Austria with a family friend who was the wife of the German ambassador to Turkey. She knew a lot about Turkish culture and especially their coffee. Turkish coffee is it’s own special beast. You get a small portion of it, it’s rich, syrupy, and strong as heck. One of the greatest afternoon pickups you could ask for.

A few years back I played a LARP character who came from a culture heavily inspired by Turkey. So I decided to see if I could make this magic elixir at a campsite. Turned out it was more than possible. I just needed a kit and to learn the technique. So after watching a few YouTube videos detailing various ways of making it I created my own method. Here it is below.
