Never tried Turkish coffee before. Do they tend to be a bit thicker with very strong flavour?

Just tried Decaf today as the proper pods haven't arrived yet in the early morn - completely pointless.

I wasn't talking about a nespresso pod or anything - I was talking about real turkish coffee cooked in an ibrik.  And yes, it is very strong and bitter.

^^ Nespresso comment is unrelated to the Turkish coffee question. It was just a passing comment.

Have to try some Turkish coffee some time. Given the information, no wonder Turkish Delights are so sweet - coffee + delights would balance out, probably.

Turkish coffee is crazy strong, a real hit if you want it in the morning.

Cardamom is definitely a good addition.  And sugar is a must for some people.

Finally bought a french press smile.gif. Trust me, it's nothing fancy, but I am very satisfied with it. It's a nice little bodum I picked up from Target and I am currently experimenting with a few coffee flavors.

Whoopee fuckin' do!

So they have upgraded their coffee from weak ass shit to regular ass shit?

Speaking of shots of coffee, it's pretty funny over here in cafes that coffee size and number of shots have nothing to do with each other. The difference between regular and large is that large has more milk or water. I use to order regular sized coffees with 3 shots in the mornings on the way to the office - same price as 1 shot reg and cheaper than 1 shot large. laugh.gif

A nice article on straight espresso:

Quote:
In an anecdotal survey of the owners of a dozen of my favorite coffee spots in New York, shops with gifted baristas and finely tuned machines, most report that straight espresso accounts for maybe 5 percent of the coffees they sell.

There's also a link in there to a great Tumblr with a daily coffee diary: http://acuppaday.tumblr.com/

I recently got some African beans: Handlebar Coffee Ethiopia Gera Jimma (cupping notes), Coffea Roasterie Rwanda Dukunde Kawa (review), and a limited-edition Peet's Rwanda Lake Kivu.
