I have had a cup of this strong rich coffee before and my first time I took a nice swing thinking it was the same as american coffee. I got a mouth full of the dark syrup like grains on the bottom and was unable to enjoy the rest of the coffee. So I was wondering has anyone else had Turkish Coffe and do you enjoy it?

You should try it. It is quite an experience. Just take it slow.

I too was under the impression that Turkish coffee was similar to American coffee in the sense that it was brewed and filtered. But after reading some of the replies here, I am intrigued by what it might taste like and how it is brewed. It sounds delicious. Can someone tell me how it is brewed...i.e. Is it pressed or steamed?

Im not excatly sure how it is brewed but it is a very strong coffee with the "grit" or grains in a murky sludge puddle at the bottom of the cup. You are supposed to drink it slow as to not injest the grits. Although some people apperently like to eat them so I guess its a taste thing.

Love it. I'm also a big fan of other cultures' strong coffee drinks, like Cuban coffee.

Oh yes I like it because I grew up with it. My parents were making it at hoem all the time. Yes, it must be an acquired taste for some. You're supposed to sip it slowly and avoid the "grit" down the bottom. Actually, after you finish you're supposed to turn the coffee cup upside down on the sauver and get a "professional" to read your coffee cup! Like reading tea leaves.

Really? I didn't know that. That is pretty cool to know though.

Turkish coffee is certainly an acquired taste :) You have to really like strong coffee. Is you have a meal at a Turkish restaurant it is nice to finish off the meal with a coffee. Turkish delight is a nice little extra with your coffee too...

I LOVE Turkish coffee, and when I'm done the coffee, I actually eat the syrup grains in the bottom. It's best enjoyed with a big piece of Turkish Delight. Ever had Turkish Delight?

I think I've heard about it but I don't think I have ever had it. What is it? I guess Turkish coffee is an aquired taste.

I recently bought an entire case of Turkish Delight from http://www.turkishtaste.com I especially love the rose flavoured stuff. I eat one piece every morning with a cup of Turkish coffee. What a wonderful way to start the day. Today's my 25th birthday, so I'll have two pieces. ;-)

Hi. Wastedoneternity I have never tasted this coffee before. And here I was thinking that this coffee must taste really good. I don't think that I would too much like this kind of coffee. Anything with grains at the bottom of it, is not assuring. Is it coffee grains?
