    Turkish coffee anyone?

    Hello--newbie here. based on my name, you might guess i like turkish coffee. i wouldn't call it my favorite type of coffee per se, but i did find i liked it much more than i thought i would. i had never had it until i spent some time in Europe. i've found that many Americans don't like it--but many Central and Eastern Europeans do. anyone have any opininions?

    I bought some fresh turkish grounds at the farmers market, but I have not tried it yet.

    I have been trying Ethiopian types

    it is quite the experience...you boil your coffee and water in an ibrik..slowly 3 times..then you pour the liquid mud into a cup...sip slowly. The coffee is so fine that it doesnt stick to your teeth. Everone should try it at least once.

    About 60% of the greens that are used in Turkish coffee come from Indonesia. From here quite a good volume is shipped to, believe it or not, Australia...where it is roasted and I assume ground and ackaged- then sent on to Turkey, or Greece. If Chris K is around, he could probably tell a few tales about this, as this is part of the biz he does out of OZ. Generally Turkish coffee is about grade a zillion, if it existed. Those in teh know reckon that the sticks, husks, floaters and other niceties that specialty coffee rejects MAKE Turkish coffee what it is.

    I myself have developed quite a taste for Turkish style coffee since moving to Indonesia. There are very few Turkish restaurants here (read only 2 in Jakarta- a city of 15,000,000!) but there are some very good Middle Eastern restaurants that serve Turkish coffee- and the Lebanese equivalent.

    I must have missed this thread the first time around.

    For your info, there's a great overview of the process of making Turkish coffee on Coffeegeek at http://www.coffeegeek.com/guides/turkishcoffee
