Espresso is a truly classic of the coffee brewing, the basis of almost every coffee type. And this recipe will open some new faces of the drink you get used to sipping in the morning at home or coffee house. So if you have already learned how to brew regular espresso at home, try this recipe.
You will need:
|ground anise||¼ teaspoon|

First of all, you have to brew the basis ― espresso. You can do it with your coffee machine or, if you have not one, you can make it in a traditional cezve ― special pot for Turkish coffee brewing. Also, you can use the french press or a small pot. To do this ― put just ground coffee beans in the cezve, pour them with 3 oz of cold water, and brew in the high temperature until the rising foam appears. Don’t boil your coffee, just wait the foam appears.
Second. If you want your coffee with spices then while brewing before the foam rises put in the cezve or in the pot honey, anise, ginger, and nutmeg. Mix them thoroughly and go on brewing.
Third. Do not boil your drink. When the foam rises take it away from fire or switch off your stove. The beverage is ready; you have only to pour it into the cups and enjoy the new amazing taste.
