A Turkish coffee is a sweet and strong coffee which is taken black and in very small quantities (similar to an espresso). The rosewater adds a very subtle taste.


  • 3oz/3 heaped tablespoons fresh, strong, finely ground coffee
  • 3oz/3 level tablespoons caster/superfine sugar
  • a few drops of rosewater
  • 1 pint water
(see measure conversions for more information on quantites)


  1. Put the water into a saucepan.
  2. Add the coffee and sugar.
  3. Bring to the boil and continue to boil until the mixture becomes frothy.
  4. Remove from the heat and allow the froth to subside.
  5. Repeat 3 more times.
  6. Just before serving add 1 tablespoon of cold water to help the grounds to settle.
  7. Add a few drops of rosewater and serve in small cups.
