Everyone who has ever tried correctly brewed coffee, never and never will not exchange this magic drink for coffee from a bag. If you do not know how to properly cook coffee in a Turk , first determine what type of coffee you will brew, on what and what Turku you will use.
About types of coffee
First of all remember that coffee is in grains, and it can be fried, and no, or ground. Milling is also different. Consider the options. Coffee beans are usually preferable to buy: you not only see the quality of coffee, you can feel its initial flavor, but you also regulate both the degree of roasting and fineness of grinding. If there is no experience in making coffee, it is better to start with roast ground coffee offered by solid producer firms. Second - coffee is pure and mixed, that is blended. The pure-bred types of coffee are arabica (it's more expensive) and robusta (it's cheaper), usually indicate the region where coffee grew. For example, Arabica from Nicaragua. If coffee has romantic-beautiful names, such as "Kenyan sunset" or "Royal Dream", then it is a mixture of different varieties, it is usually also flavored. Such coffee can seriously change the taste and aroma in the cooking process, so think for yourself if it's worth the risk.

We pour water into the Turk and put it on the fire. What should be the fire - at the first stage is not important. But when water boils with a key, we make heating minimal. We pour coffee and cinnamon and, holding the Turk in the upper layers of the flame of the burner, we wait, when the liquid boils and the foam disappears. This usually takes about 2 minutes. Turn off the fire, add a couple of crystals of salt and a couple of drops of cold water. In a cup we put sugar, pour cognac on it (you can, of course, do without alcohol), pour in coffee.
