    Turkish Coffee

    They serve Turkish Coffee at River Nile Coffee in Keller TX

    It is so good, they bring special raosted beans from Egypt, mixed with some spice, and it really taste great.

    Ha Ha, turkish!! In Greece it is one of the "national" drinks (I actually think Greeks drink it more than turks do - I know a few turkish friends who mostly drink tea)
    Anyway, there are many people in Greece who call it "turkish" (and I think the older generations always called it turkish - my dad still does) and they get corrected by younger people. But come to think about it, its origins must be arabic, thus the best naming should be "arabic" coffee, I think.

    Good point. Actually the Turkish - Greek animosity thing has always interested me. I remember asking for Tukish Coffee in a Greek restaurant many years ago, and the waiter (an elderly Greek), spat on th floor and muttered something nasty before walking away and bringing back a sachet of Nestle instant! No Turkish (or Greek) coffee in that establishment! Back to your point, indeed the Lebanese have almost exactly the same method of preparing coffee, not sure about the counties further Southeast of there.

    haha, typical!!!

    By the way, I didn't answer (I think someone asked) about the coffee itself.
    The grinds have to be very fine, like powder and from all the grocerie stores I have never been able to get it as fine as it should be on their grinders. Second, the coffee must be a light roast and usually, in Greece we use Santos (I think that is what the bean is called). So I would suggest to buy a turkish or greek branded coffee from a local arabic/mediterenean store (we've got plenty in Michigan). I don't know of any turkish brands but the Greek brands are "Bravo" which is good and is an everyday brand in Greece and "Papagalos Loumidis" which is supposed to be a more gourmet type. They both come in air-tight opaque bags that do a pretty good job of keeping the coffee fresh.

    i remember first having turkish coffee when working at a festival and at the end of the day a group of us would get together at this greek stall to drinking some turkish and relax...
    i enjoyed it so much that i use to make it in the mornings at school untill they removed the kitchen. I also remeber a once, after staying up for about 40 hours and having to meet up with someone, getting a "cure for a hangover" which was a turkish coffee with three shots.... it was quite strong and set me for another 4 hours

    Re: Turkish coffee anyone?

    Turkish coffee powder is the finest one in coffee world... It has a special brewing technique...
    But, I think, difference of Turkish coffee doesn't come only from these things. To me, Turkish coffee represents a life style, which whispers "you should enjoy the life... you should understand the moment you live..."

    Whenever I drink my Turkish coffee in rush, I can't get the taste I'm used to... To get maximum pleasure from Turkish coffee, you should sit, relax, take a sip from your little Turkish coffee cup, talk to your friends, then another sip... enjoy the moment you have!

    Brewing and drinking Turkish coffeee is a kind of ceremony. It's like a break in our hectic days...

    I don't know, maybe I consider Turkish coffee too emotionally But, it really means a life style for me...

    Is Turkish coffee more expensive than ordinary black coffee? Does it taste more bitter?

    What does it mean that the "coffee doesn't stick to your teeth"? I've been drinking coffee for some time and it doesnt stick to my teeth haha

    I'm going to Europe next year and would love to try it out

    I just had some Turkish Coffee (cafe arabe) from CAFE Jekemir in Mexico city downtown.
    I have been coming to this cafe for more than 20 years, but first time having Turkish coffee.
    It is very different than any other coffees that I had before, but I must say.. it is quite interesting and good.

    I had my first Turkish coffee about a month ago. I met some friends at a Mediterranean style coffee and hookah bar. When it comes to coffe, I always like to try new things and ordered the Turkish.
    It was an experience. Great taste overall. I was a little surprised when I took the last sip and noticed the "mud" on the bottom of the cup!!
    I went home and did some online research and found out that is the norm. Now I am looking for my own Turkish brewing pitcher, can't remember the name.
