Turkish & Greek Coffee Recipes

A lot of people know how to make a basic cup of Turkish coffee, but these are some not so common Turkish and Greek coffee recipes:
Greek Coffee Recipe with "Ouzo"
This is a traditional coffee recipe of the Greek monks in the sacred "Agio Oros". You will need:
2 teaspoonfuls of Greek coffee
2 teaspoons of sugar
1 teaspoon of "ouzo" (traditional Greek alcohol drink)
2*3oz cups water
After you prepare your coffee add the Ouzo inside, and serve.
With "Koniak"
This is a traditional coffee recipe of Greek seamen. It's the same as the previous recipe with the only difference that you use Koniak instead of Ouzo.
With "Honey"
This is an old Greek coffee recipe from Smirni. Prepare your Greek-Turkish coffee, and then add one teaspoon of honey. It's delicious!
With "Cardamom"
This is sort of Arabic version for Turkish coffee recipe. Use a dark coffee blend ground for Turkish. Get some cardamon, and grind it or use a mortar. 2 seeds per cup is enough.
Cardamon is used to spice up and give aroma to the coffee. You will need:
2 teaspoonfuls of coffee
1-2 teaspoons of sugar
as much cardamon as you want
2*3oz cups water
Prepare coffee as usual. You will get a delicious exotic coffee, which is very different from anything you've tasted before!
With "Mastich"
Same as the above recipe but instead of cardamom you must use mastich (only produced in Chios island, Greece)
Turkish Coffee Recipe with "Fennel Seeds"
Same as the above recipe but instead of cardamom you must use fennel seeds.
So, go ahead and enjoy great coffee!

Starbucks Iced Coffee Recipe Versus All Other Iced Coffee

- Are All Recipes The Same? 
If you like iced coffee then I expect as you are probably a serious coffee lover you love the starbucks iced coffee recipe. If you are reading this article then you have tasted and know what iced coffee is and you will certainly have tried a starbucks iced coffee recipe. But iced coffee is not what you are thinking it is. You do not make a cup of hot coffee and wait for it to cool down or chill it in the freezer to make a glass of iced coffee. You could not be more wrong! Yes of course iced coffee is a variety of a hot brewed coffee, but there is a method to make it, a method that is different from the way a hot coffee is brewed and the starbucks iced coffee recipe is just gorgeous.

Making Iced Coffee- Tips And Tricks
Hot coffees are hot-brewed, but if you want to make iced coffee the way it was made when it was started, then you have to cold-brew the coffee. Yes, you read that right - You do not need to heat coffee if you want to make an iced coffee. All you need is a special pot, cold water, and coarsely grounded coffee beans! Or if you prefer try the starbucks iced coffee recipe below and you can be the judge.
o Pour the cold water in the pot.
o Put in the coarsely grounded coffee beans.
Other Ideas for you to try:
o Put some of the coffee you've made in the freezer and make ice cubes out of it.
o Try adding a bit of sugar syrup and a little chocolate flavoring.
o Top off your iced coffee with a generous helping of whipped cream, chocolate sprinkles and a flake to really impress your friends- they will think you are an iced coffee expert or an employee of starbucks coffee house!
What will happen is that the cold water will extract the coffee flavors but will not extract the bitter compounds and the fatty oils that are present in the beans. This means that the iced coffee, which is made, will have less acid content than what it would have had if it were hot-brewed. Coffee made using this method was originally called iced coffee. This method was invented in 1962 by a chemical engineer, Todd Simpson, and his company is still around today (It's called Toddy Products). 
If you choose to make iced coffee using the hot-brew method, then you must get the coffee into the refrigerator once it reaches room temperature. If you allow it to get colder than that, then it may lose its flavor.

Starbucks Iced Coffee Recipe:
Starbucks Frappuccino
o 2 shots (3 oz.) espresso
o 1/4 cup granulated sugar
o 2 1/2 cups low-fat milk
o 1 Tbls. pectin OR 1 tsp. pectin + 1 tsp. arrowroot
1. Stir sugar into espresso. Cool mixture.
2. Stir milk and pectin into espresso mixture until pectin is dissolved.
3. Fill a glass with ice and either serve mixture over ice, or pour glass contents into blender and blend for 30-45 seconds. Enjoy!
