device. By placing a paper filter in
the tube, coffee is steeped for about
one minute and then pressed through
the filter with a plunger.

Easy & quick – this coffee is made by
simply pouring the desired amount
of hot water over the coffee
powder and stirring until
dissolves.

Turkish Coffee

Water
Espresso

Traditional Turkish Coffee is prepared
in a pot called dzezva (cezve).
The water is heated in the pot
until it boils, then the ground coffee
is put inside. After steering a bit,
it is often quickly reheated just to get
an extra cream on the top.
Remains of the coffee powder will
stay in your cup as the coffee is
not filtered.

Milk Based Coffee

These types of coffees are perfect for consuming in the afternoon or evening hours due to the lower concentration of acidity and caffeine. Milk just ads an extra touch.

Famous coffee with even more iconic

Coffee Drink Recipes is the cappuccino
and consists of espresso 1 ounce (25-
30ml), which is then topped with
frothed hot milk in a 5 ounce (150ml)
tall glass or mug. The name stems
probably from the Capuchin friars
meaning “small cap” and refers to the
perfect shade of brown color of their
habits.
