Turkish coffee is a method of preparing coffee with coffee beans ground into a very fine powder, hot water, and sugar. The best Turkish coffee will have a thick foam at the top without any noticeable particles in the foam or liquid.

This method of brewing coffee is highly influential in Turkish culture. Their word for breakfast, kahvalti, literally translates to 'before coffee', and their word for the color brown, 'kahverengi', literally means 'the color of coffee'. They also commonly call their coffeeshops 'qahwa', which means 'coffee' in the same way that Western languages would call it a caf.
