Coffee brewing methods
Classic coffee recipes:
Coffee is an integral part of the Arab world, and the ceremony of preparation and consumption of this drink is an important ritual that has survived to our days almost intact, if we brew coffee in a copper cezve (also known as “the cezve”). Important . the grind should be very fine. The cups should be pre-warmed, because the cold Cup can kill the best coffee. Water in any case should not be hot or boiled.
All recipes are made at the rate of 7 grams per 60 ml of water or a little more (about a heaping teaspoon per small Cup).
In cezve put one sugar, pour 3/4 of the capacity of cold water, put on fire. Once the contents come to a boil, cezve remove from heat and add 5-7 grams of finely ground coffee (best to grind coffee beans immediately before cooking). After stirring with a spoon, put on the heat again and bring to the boil. Remove from heat, add the water and again put on the fire. Once the coffee is boiling, cezve remove from heat and hot served.
This option is also called “Oriental coffee”. In a small cezve add 5- 10 g of finely ground coffee, fill with fresh cold water and bring to the boil. After boiling served to the table. Separately, served in glasses of cold water. Coffee drink in small SIPS with water.
Make coffee in the Turk as in the recipe for Turkish coffee . During cooking, when the water in the cezve is already hot, add the saffron and cardamom seeds (Cardamom and saffron – half tsp. Spoons). Let stand, it is important to remove the cardamom, so as not to spoil the taste of the drink. Serve as regular coffee.
