$18.00 $15.00

Turkish Coffee, or more accurately, Arabic Coffee (the Greeks call it elliniko), is a style of coffee that originated in Yemen and is somewhat similar to an espresso, except thicker, more velvety, and is often served with a thin layer of foam on top.  The coffee beans themselves, however, were originally discovered and are still naturally grown in Ethiopia.  Important things to know about this coffee you’re about to purchase:

  • From Ethiopia Sidamo coffee, grown in the Sidamo province of Ethiopia (considered the birthplace of all coffee) is a 100% Arabica bean variety.
  • Certified Fair Trade and Organic.
  • It is roasted, ground, and packaged in California.
  • We keep a small inventory, freshly packaged for The Mediterranean Dish.

How to Make Turkish Coffee (Arabic Coffee):

To make two 3-oz cups of coffee, here is what you need:

  • Measure 2 Turkish coffee cups full of water (distilled water preferred)
  • 2 Tablespoons ground Turkish coffee
  • Sugar, optional


  1. If using whole beans, be sure to grind the coffee using the lowest setting to get a soft powder-like result. It is best to use a Turkish coffee grinder or a burr grinder. Do not use a coffee grinder with only a spinning blade.
  2. In a Turkish coffee pot (cezve), put the water, coffee, and sugar (start with ½ teaspoon and up to 2 teaspoon of sugar, if you like your coffee a bit sweeter). Using a spoon, stir briefly to combine.
  3. Put the pot over medium-low heat and watch closely for it to slowly warm up until a dark bubbly foam builds up at the top (it will take 3 to 4 minutes or so).
  4. As the foam rises, immediately remove the pot from the heat (do not allow it to boil and overflow). Very quickly, use a spoon to transfer some of the foam into each of your two Turkish coffee cups.
  5. Return the pot to the stovetop again briefly, and as more bubbles form, use your spoon to transfer them to the cups.
  6. Return the pot again to the stovetop for an additional 15 seconds. Remove from the heat and very slowly pour the coffee into your cups.
  7. Let the coffee sit for a minute so that the grounds settle in the bottom. Enjoy!

    I love a good cup of coffee. I want my coffee strong and flavorful without a bite, I am a Peets fan but this is much better.
