Turkish Coffee with Milk
(Sutlu Turk Kahvesi)
Today, I wanted to share my grandmother's morning coffee with you. When I was little, I've always enjoyed drinking it with plenty of milk and less coffee. I loved to drink it together with her. I still enjoy it today.
For this coffee you'll need to boil 100 ml of 3.25% (whole) milk in a small pot to get a layer of skin (butterfat) on the surface. Grab it with a spoon, along with a few tablespoons of milk, and place in a small glass cup or mug. Then make plain (no sugar) Turkish Coffee for one person. Pour it in over the milk.
If you like to have some sugar with your morning coffee, the Turkish way to do it is this: Take 2 sugar cubes. The way to use the sugar is, before taking a sip, put one cube in your cheek and start drinking. The sugar will melt in your mouth. When it is gone, replace with the second cube. We call this style "sugar on the side" ("yandan şekerli" or "kırtlama").
