What is Turkish Coffee?
Have you ever tried Turkish coffee? I mean, like the real deal? It doesn’t involve hazelnut creamer, but it does involve sweetening it, then cooking on the stove until it’s nice and frothy.
The taste is similar to espresso, rich yet still a perfect “shot” of coffee to sip on. Well friends, I think you’re gonna like where I’m going with this today. Dairy free and vegan Hazelnut Turkish Coffee! A little bit of cultural coffee fusion to make your coffee morning moment better! Not to mention more ROBUST!
You may know that my father in law owned a coffee farm in Hawaii, right? Remember, I spoke about my love for it in my Thai Iced Vegan Coffee recipe.
Anyway, that kinda made me a coffee snob. I blame my husband. But the good news is it EXPANDED my horizon when it came to preparing coffee. That is without losing it’s quality or making it super duper sugar loaded. I learned it’s all about process and that a little goes a long way.
I also learned that the type of coffee BEAN you use is crucial and that adding creamer (or in this case, dairy free vegan hazelnut creamer) is even better when heated on the stove! Turkish coffee is pretty much AWESOME for practicing that!
I’m going to make you fall in love with you morning routine with this vegan Turkish coffee recipe, using Dairy Free Hazelnut So Delicious Creamer.
The Oh so Yummy So Delicious dairy free creamer came from those beautiful red isles. You know where that is, right? TARGET! Target has a whole new line of Better for you Coffee Creamers (organic and dairy free) in the dairy section. But I am warning you….. they disappear FAST! Like real fast!
Okay, before we jump to this vegan hazelnut coffee recipe, let me first let me explain how you make a traditional Turkish coffee recipe. And then I’ll explain how I tweaked it, just a tad.
How to Make Turkish Coffee
Turkish coffee, or some may call this, Greek coffee, is made on the stove top with a Greek briki (a small of pot with a long handle that’s used to boil coffee). Turkish coffee creates a froth on its surface almost like an espresso. It’s also notable for the way it’s ground. You gotta make it SUPER FINE ya’ll! I blended a my Arabica coffee beans a little longer in the coffee grinder, until it almost turned into a powder.
The coffee is then simmered (or soft boiled) with the water and sugar, but in this case, I subbed the extra sugar with so delicious vegan hazelnut coffee creamer. After simmering, the coffee is not filtered out.
Now here’s where I tweak it. I did not use a Bikri, obviously. Instead I used a small pot on the stove and add in a vegan hazelnut coffee creamer, to make it even frothier. Yes, my tweak is still AMAZING! I may be bias.
But don’t worry, you won’t actually drink the grinds at the bottom. Trust me, it works and is SOOOOO good!
I know, I know. You’re thinking… “coffee.. on a stove and unfiltered?” Yes, it’s SO easy, yum, and extra fancy without actually being fancy! You’ll get a homemade coffee shop drink in less than 10 minutes.
Except this Turkish style vegan hazelnut coffee is free, it’s made with real ingredients, and it’s quite cozy and delicious!!Print
Did I mention this is also great for when you go camping? Just roast over an open fire. Uh, not that you are going camping anytime during Fall or Winter, but you get my point. A coffee hack you can use anywhere really. Better than instant, better than the trip to the $$ coffee shop, and just plain BETTER for YOU! Oh yea people, get your Vegan HAZELNUT Coffee fix at home and made REAL GOOD!
Dang, makes me want to jet over to Turkey or Greece just to pick up an Bikiri. Anyone want to sponsor that trip? Kidding.. maybe. Instead, I’ll hop on over to my local Target. It’s more economical and a trip I make daily anyway. Haha!
Mmmmm, I adore Turkish vegan hazelnut coffee.
