Turkish coffee, which has settled in our culture with its many features and beauty, will not be satisfied…

Let’s start our conversation while sipping with pleasure…

Coffee Cooking Preparation
The coffee set special (chest) box is pulled out under cedar or crayfish. The folded pack is opened from the folds on the right-left, front-back, one by one. After years of tiredness and traces of hands, unwrapping the embroidered cloths, materials such as coffee mill filled with embroidery, coffee roasting pan, coffee pot, cup, coffee box, and coffee spoon are revealed one by one.

First of all, green beans are taken with handfuls and placed in the roasting dish. There is a fire in the barbecue and a foot on it. There is a certain distance between the fire and the roasting dish, to ensure that the coffee does not burn.

The coffee beans placed in the roasting bowl are mixed with wood mixer until they are thick. The coffee beans that have become consistency are placed in the mill container to be drawn in the hand mill. Fragrant coffee during roasting covers the whole area with it’s attractive scent. In this exquisite fragrance atmosphere, the core of the mill starts to be grinded, and again, a different exquisite smell combines with the smell of roasting, and the resulting smell becomes so different…
Especially as we, the children of that period, the taste of freshly roasted powdered coffee and powdered sugar, scoops and spoons would be another taste of tasting here. Finally, the coffee, which has been dipped in lip powder in the brass mill, is put into the coffee pot with a scale (also called a hand scale or eye decision) to be sipped by its drinkers. These walnuts are made in different volumes such as single, double, triple, etc. with copper mine and inside are tinned.

The coffee in the coffee pot is scaled with the calculation and the water in the glass jug taken from the sources and rested is put. The ash in the copper brazier is placed in the fire to a level close to the top, and the coffee pot is placed in the ash and embedded in it. Now it is mixed for a long time in order to make the coffee completely mix, melt and consistency while starting to cook slowly and slowly to serve. When foam layer forms on the surface of the coffee pot, mixing is stopped. Again Wait for a long time until the foam swells and overflows. Whenever the overflow situation approaches, the transfer to the prepared cup / cups starts next to the barbecue. If there was more than one cup of the first foam, it was distributed equally to them and great care was taken to make each cup equal foam. This understanding refers to the equal service provided by the caterer to the guests. It would be correct to state that our past culture may be a very small example of equitable behavior.

The sounds we often hear in our ears before coffee is prepared;
How would you like your coffee? How about your coffee? How do you drink your coffee? Responses such as plain, ‘’herif kahvesi’’, ‘’yandan çarklı’’, ‘’okkalı’’, low-sugar, medium-sugar, sugar, and frothy were received.
Easy to prepare the preferred one for one person. However, when there are a few different choices, different coffees are prepared for manga or fire, and those that contain different tastes prepared upon request are served personally. The owner of the catering would make these preparations with great pleasure, without any disturbance.

After catering
Good health in your hands, The smell is very nice, It tasted good, I guess coffee was just taken, I think you just drew the coffee, Especially ‘’telvesi’’, A special pleasure in slow fire on the barbecue, A different taste in barbecue fire, A distinct flavor in the ash of the barbecue, I think the coffee pot was special, Coffee is another from your hands, Very finely drawn, It was in full consistency, Expressions such as rather good would make the house and caterer happy…
