Now, this is Turkish and Balkan famous coffee made from unfiltered black coffee. There is nothing hard in process of preparation, but the centuries of preparation have made the Turkish people masters of this coffee. Traditionally made in dzezva which is put over the heated sand, but who has the stove working on sand nowadays… Millions of these cups are drunk every day, and they are very popular now in the rest of the Europe. You will need:
-1 cup of water
-1 tablespoon of fresh ground black coffee
The water and sugar are heated in dzezva to the boiling temperature. After that, you need to remove the dzezva from the stove, add the coffee and then but it back on the stove. Allow it to come on to a bowling temperature again as the foam creates. Remove it and repeat the process again (this will ensure that the foam doesn’t vanish while you drink the coffee). After you finish the coffee, by the beliefs of those who drink this coffee through the centuries it has fortune-telling abilities. You simply turn the mug upside down and someone with special fortune-telling abilities will look your future in the leftover grounds of coffee.

What is the first thing that comes to your mind when I say Irish coffee? Alcohol that is right. This one includes tequila instead of whiskey and a little bit of Kahlua (which is some type of liqueur). And also the vanilla ice cream is included!! To be honest I need to try it.
The vanilla ice cream (1/3 of a cup) is heated in a microwave for 30 seconds. 15 ml of tequila and 15 ml of Kahlua is poured in previously brewed black coffee and everything is combined with the vanilla ice cream.
This one sound addictive, so you make sure that you do not overstate with the amount of tequila (I know it is hard to resist).
