"The key sign of a good Turkish coffee is the dark creamy froth (crema). Caster sugar is also known as superfine sugar. It can be found in the sugar aisle and usually comes in what looks like a milk carton. Turkish coffee is normally made in an ibrik or cezve, and obviously yields a much more authentic coffee. This recipe uses a simple saucepan. If you like it and want to make it again, I would definitely invest in an ibrik."
