Jill's Turkish coffee for a crowd

8 tablespoons finely ground darkest roast coffee
8 tablespoons sugar
8 green cardamom pods, crushed
2 cups water

Mix all ingredients in a small saucepan and bring to a boil. Briefly remove from heat and return to a boil. Remove from heat a third time and return to a boil.

Pour into tiny demitasse cups and serve at once. Be careful not to drink the grounds that settle to the bottom of the cup. Serves a crowd.

For only two servings, mix 1 tablespoon coffee, 1 tablespoon sugar and 1/4 cup water in the traditional ibrik or finjan (pictured here) or small saucepan. Bring to boil three times and serve as above.
