Here is how I make my Armenian coffee, for those of you interested. Note: Armenian coffee is very similar to Turkish coffee, Arabic coffee, Greek coffee, Cuban coffee. There are also many ways to make it, including adding spices like cardamom for flavour, but this is my super-simple way.
- Jazzveh - that's the small pot that the coffee is made in. You can get them from middle eastern style shops. Or just use any small pot.
- Coffee cup - small, with a handle
- Middle Eastern coffee - Most supermarkets sell these now. I buy the Negrita Middle Eastern blend from Woolworths for around $4.00 a packet. It needs to be very finely ground so that it dissolves easily in water.
- Sugar - optional
Step by step:
- Have your utensils handy
- Add 1 heaped teaspoon of coffee to the jazzveh
- (Optional) Add sugar to taste - I add about half a teaspoon
- Add 1 coffee cup of water to the jazzveh
- Put on stove top to boil
- The coffee is ready when it starts bubbling up on the sides and rises. Take it off the stove top before it boils over.
Serve with Turkish Delight or Baklava. Serves 1
