  • 600 ml cold water (3 cups)
  • 1-2 tsp sugar
  • 6 tsp finely ground coffee (heaped)


  • Pour water into a coffee pot (dzezva) and let it come to a boil.
  • Add sugar (or skip if you are drinking bitter coffee).
  • Pour out some of the boiling water, enough to fill a coffee cup you will be serving in. Set aside.
  • Remove the pot from the heat.
  • Add coffee and stir very gently until the mixture foams up.
  • Put the pot back on the heat and allow the coffee to rise. Watch it carefully as this often happens in a second.
  • Remove and let the coffee fall down. Repeat twice more so that your coffee rises and falls three times.
  • Remove from the heat.
  • Pour back the water from a cup that you set aside before.
  • Spoon equal amounts of the foam into serving cups/mugs. Then pour out the coffee too.
