Making Armenian coffee is pretty much a routine for us, Armenians .We start the day with that coffee, well, I mean many of us;), we drink it after lunch or early dinner. And we certainly drink it when someone comes over for a quick chat or for anything else. That’s the Armenian way , the best way to bond with family, friends and even neighbors. We call it Armenian coffee, but it’s certainly imported from Columbia,as far as I know:)
Nothing difficult or complicated when making this kind of coffee. All you need is the right roast and grind of coffee, a coffee pot, we call it jazve, and patience to bring it to the simmer .Yes, and of course you will need coffee cups: espresso size 3-4oz cups will be the right choice for making the Armenian coffee. Sugar is to be added to your taste.
A few quick tips on how to make the Armenian coffee:
*When buying coffee : ask for super fine grind, half dark and half medium of your favorite roasts ( I choose Colombian and French mix)
*Use cold filtered water
*Measure the water and pour into your coffee pot, Jazve
*Add 1 full teaspoon of coffee for each cup of water, add sugar to your taste
*Stir once to combine coffee and water
*Bring the coffee to a simmer over medium to high heat, as it starts to foam and rise,quickly remove from the heat
Do not let the coffee to come to a boil!
*Pour into your cups and enjoy
