I've tried making this a few times now, following the directions exactly, and the coffee seems awfully weak for Turkish style coffee. I used 6 tbsp (3 fl ozs) of water, 1 heaping tsp of Turkish coffee powder, and 1 sugar cube (= 1 tsp sugar). It's okay, but I'd like it a lot stronger. Also, I am not getting much crema. I think maybe I'll leave this to my DH, who has been making it quite well for years! Thanks anyway, Chef floWer! Made for Comfort Cafe January 2009.

I got given some Turkish coffee in a swap so thought that Ortu Sutlu sounded like me, yep I was right. I used skim milk so I didn't get the froth that I should have but this is great tasting coffee. Yum!

I LOVE this coffee! My ex-husband is of Macedonian descent. My dear, sweet (ex)MIL taught me to make this coffee many many years ago. I loved it from the first cup. She always made it very sweet (Cok Sekerli) and so this is the version I made today. I made a cup for myself and my step-daughter and she too now loves this coffee. Thank you so much for posting this simple but delicious coffee.

This is coffee that all Middle East's countries and Greece share. So its the most common coffee in Greece. I had mine sade (sketo in Greek). Its common here that we serve it to our guests with a glass of cold water and a homemade sweet in syrop (spoon sweet). As you can see in the photo I had in hand, grape in syrop by my mum. A great evening beverage and snack! Thanks Chef floWer!

Turkish Coffee is the only coffee I enjoy black, but when I saw Orta Sutlu I just had to try it! I loved it! Go ahead, give it a try! You will love it!

I made the orta sutlu 'cause I was curious what the coffee would be like made directly with milk rather than adding milk to the finished coffee. It was tasty and very rich, but next time I would cut the sugar in half. Thanks for sharing.

I can still buy Turkish Coffe from a supplier in Poitiers - and I STILL have all the numerous size coffee pots too! So, I was delighted to make this for ZWT3....when I lived in Cyprus I was given instructions on how to make this - and my frothy head was perfect after all these years! I am an ORTA person - always was - so I made this orta and it was Cok Guzel!! Thanks for posting and reminding me to make this, as an after dinner boost! FT:-)

This is authentic! Easy to follow directions, because the measure is the espresso cup you will ultimately drink from. I have Turkish coffee, finely ground with roasted cardamum, and I was glad to use it with this recipe! Excellent!

Great coffee. I have been intending to try this Turkish coffee for quite awhile now. I even found a place in Regina to get the coffee powder! Wonders never cease. I went with Orta Sutlu and Turkish coffee definatly has it's own personality but it's one I quite like. I was hard pressed not to add a cinnamon stick and a star anise but I wanted to have the first cup "straight". The spice will go into the next one *wink*. I made a double, wheeeeeeeeeee. Thanks floWer. Made for ZWT3
