Coffee comes in many forms. You’ve got the traditional drip coffee maker, the pour-over, the French press, and plenty of other methods. While all of these options guarantee you a good cup of coffee, we’ve discovered the trick to the best cup.

Turkish coffee is going to change to way you wake up for the better!

Do as the Turkish Do

The Turkish method of coffee making, believe it or not, produces no waste. That’s right, there’s no filter involved. Turkish coffee is brewed from unfiltered beans that are ground very finely, sort of like a dust.

When you bring the water and coffee to a boil, the grounds create a nice, flavorful froth on top since there’s no filter. You may notice some dregs in the bottom of your mug, but they won’t creep up on you as you enjoy your morning boost.

Here’s the Tool to Use

To make this frothy creation, you need a cezve…aka a Turkish coffeepot. A cezve is a small (and inexpensive) pot that fits in the palm of your hand. Its design makes it perfect for brewing a fresh cup of coffee, but it has other uses, too!

The Turkish coffeepot can also melt butter, cheese or chocolate for a yummy dessert (because let’s be honest, the microwave doesn’t always cut it). Even if you don’t use it for coffee, the Turkish coffeepot is a must-have in the kitchen.

Make sure to grab breakfast, too! This is why you should never drink coffee on an empty stomach.

Editor’s tip: Try pairing Turkish coffee with galaktoboureko, a Greek custard dessert.

Where Can You Find a Turkish Coffeepot?

Plenty of retailers offer a cezve, but not all perform too well. The sleek shape and design of Bed Bath & Beyond’s Turkish coffeepot have received high praise—so has the price! The stainless steel won’t hold onto aromas, so you’ll never have those old flavors haunting you through your morning java. The shape doesn’t allow the coffee to burn on the bottom while it boils. We think it’s worth giving a try.

Oh—and if you need a good coffee to complement your new cezve, try our very own Taste of Home brew!
