Ahweh Arabi (Lebanese/Turkish Coffee)
Ahweh Arabi (Lebanese/Turkish Coffee) is famous around the world.


1 demitasse cup of water
1 1/2 teaspoon sugar
1 heaping teaspoon finely powdered coffee (not instant)


1 Measure water and sugar in Rakweh (Turkish Coffee Maker).
Dissolve the sugar in the water by bringing the mixture to a boil stirring constantly.

Remove from heat and stir in coffee.

Return to heat and bring slowly back to a boil. When the coffee begins to rise up remove from heat. When foaming recedes return to heat and bring back to a boil. Repeat this procedure three times . The goal is to get maximum coffee flavor without over boiling. There should be a thick sediment on the bottom and a brown froth on the top.

Best way to Drink: Serve the coffee by pouring gradually into each cup to evenly distribute the sediment. You should buy a Rakweh (Turkish Coffee Maker - from a middle eastern shop) and adjust the recipe to serve more people.
