This style of coffee is one of my favorites, though I seem to only ever drink it while in greece... except for when I visit one friend who insists on making mammoth sized cups of the stuff.

I haven't made this in a very long time, though I recall putting a couple of teaspoons of sugar in with it too. It's a great pick me up in the morning and goes great with some greek shortbread cookies too.

Fine grind coffee of your choice
100 ml boiling water + 1 teaspoon sugar, 1,5 teaspoon coffee
boil for a second or two
add a little cold water, wait 3 minutes to separate...

Voila, your Turkish coffee ;)

That's great Turkishcoffee, but you should start a new topic with your photo guide, either in the Business To Business section or Coffee Websites section of the forum. Much better than replying to a topic that has expired well over a year ago. It's called trolling.

Also, please note rule no. 2 on the forum rules page regarding website address dropping: viewtopic.php?t=6
It helps to cut down on spamming in the forum.

Nice signature by the way. :wink:

Turkish coffee sounds very good to me and I'd like to try it sometime. One thing I can't abide, however, is sludge or grounds in my cup. I know, I know - it's not gonna hurt me to swallow it. Just the same, is there an acceptable way to prevent the gunk in my mug? I'm not a purist by any means so how about filtering it? Would that break some cardinal rule?

Do any of the bigger coffee houses serve Turkish coffee?
