In the 21st century, coffee exists not only as a drink. Coffee in many places has become a local feature under the inheritance of countless generations. For example, Vietnamese egg coffee, Ethiopian clay pot coffee, Irish whisky coffee, and romantic Turkish coffee! These are the characteristics that we are bound to experience when we go to the local area. Very well, what I want to share in Qianjie today is Turkish coffee, which is the most magical of these specialty coffee.

Turkish coffee is like a small grain in Yunnan. The Turkish coffee at that time is completely different from the Turkish coffee now! Before the collapse of the Ottoman Turkish Empire, the Arabs used a large pot called Dallah to make coffee. (note: the Ottoman Empire was a multi-ethnic empire established by the Turks in 1299 and disintegrated in 1923.)

This pot body, as we can see, has a bright golden appearance and a water outlet like a big beak. Arabs use it to cook unbaked or even unbaked coffee beans! This is inconceivable to the Turks. So soon, the Turks improved the Arab way of making coffee, changing the light / unroasted coffee beans into deep-roasted coffee beans, and replacing the original Dallah coffee pot with a long-handle copper pot called Cezve. Only the way of cooking has not changed, the same is to add water and coffee and then cook slowly over charcoal fire. The coffee modified by the Turks was so popular that it was naturally renamed "Turkish Coffee". With the expansion of the empire, the way of making this delicious coffee quickly spread! As far as every corner of the empire and as far away as European countries, Turkish coffee could be seen on the streets at that time.

But not many people know about the evolution of Turkish coffee, so people correct the local way of making coffee under the local name: Greek coffee and Armenian coffee are typical examples. but with the passage of time, they also derived their own coffee culture style, but in essence, they still have the same origin as Turkish coffee.

Cezve Turkish coffee maker is right! The Cezve long-handle copper pot mentioned in the front street above is what our major media platforms can see, the "magic" copper pot that can constantly pour out coffee liquid.

This pot is usually made of brass and is all made by hand. The appearance is characterized by a long handle connected to a container with a diversion port. The thickness of the pot body will be changed according to the way it is heated, the thickness of the sand-pushing pot will be thinner, and the pot heated by open fire will be thicker, about 1-1.5mm.

How to make Turkish coffee? The way Turkish coffee is made is like Ethiopia, even in modern times, there is no change! Add coffee powder to the kettle and cook it by heating it in a way other than an induction cooker. Similarly, Turkish coffee does not need to filter the coffee grounds, because the coffee powder used by the Turks has been mashed by hand many times, and its particles are more delicate than Italian flour! What's more, a lot of powder will sink to the bottom of the cup before drinking, drinking directly will not drink too much coffee powder, even if it is difficult to detect, naturally there is no need for filter residue. Moreover, this powder still has a great use after drinking coffee.

Qianjie cooking parameters: coffee powder 5g 60ml (because the pot is small), grinding thickness for Italian grinding and then after several hand ramming undetectable powder. (it is worth mentioning that traditional Turkish coffee is not seasoned with sugar and spices.) pour all the plain ingredients into the pot and wait for the fire to boil. When the coffee liquid reaches the boiling point, it starts to foam and tumble, and then when it is about to overflow, we remove it from the source of fire.

After cooling down, put it back to the fire to cook again, remove it again when it is about to overflow, and then repeat it again and pour it into the cup to enjoy the coffee. And this move is the most traditional practice of "three rolls". Of course, there is also the practice of pouring out one-third at a time, just like popular videos on the Internet.

Turkish coffee divination in addition to the infinite emergence of coffee liquid, the most magical color than Turkish coffee divination! When we finish drinking coffee, we can put the cup and saucer over the cup, and then turn it upside down with the cup and saucer and wait for a period of time.

After a short wait, the coffee powder was almost solidified in the cup. Then we can turn the coffee cup over at this time. Then the barista will interpret the divination according to the distribution of the coffee powder: the shapes of the letters, animals, moon and sun are all the resident guests of the divination. By the way, Qianjie doesn't know what they stand for. so naturally it won't disturb the popular science.

Although traditional Turkish coffee is not seasoned, it is interesting that spiced Turkish coffee is used to identify character in Turkish marriage customs.

For example, the man who is going to the woman's house to propose marriage needs to drink a cup of Turkish coffee with all kinds of seasonings. If he does not look embarrassed and does not wear a pain mask, then it shows that this man is patient, can bear hardships, and has a cheerful personality! It's like the front street.
