One of my favorite souvenirs that my mom brought me back from Serbia last summer was the beautiful hand crafted Turkish coffee set. The set included a jezva (Turkish coffee pot), two small cups, a sugar pot, and a serving tray. I've loved learning to make the intense coffee just like my mom and Baka used to make when company came over.
To make this, you'll need a few things that you may not have at home. You'll need a jezva, which is a small, tall, and skinny coffee pot, and Turkish coffee grounds, or very finely ground coffee grounds. You can find the grounds at any European grocery store.
