I love Turkish coffee. I love it so much that I eat the coffee mud at the bottom of the cup. I know you're not usually supposed to eat it, that a Turkish coffee reader will read your fortune for you, but I don't know any Turkish coffee readers, so I just eat the yummy stuff in the bottom of the cup.

While I LOVE the smell of coffee, I don't like to drink it. Is Turkish coffee stronger? Maybe I'll have a cup with you next summer!

LOL Turkish coffee is S T R O N G and THICK!!! there's a bit of liquid on top, almost like coffee syrup, watery mud LOL, and a layer of coffee mud at the bottom (no filters) and boy is it delicious!!!!!!!!!! You drink it in little tiny espresso cups. Walker and I make it at home, and there's a restaurant in guelph called The Greek Garden where we get it. Greek, Turkish, Armenian... lots of countries in Eastern Europe do it that way.

Hi danish...I have had Turkish coffee and while I can take it or leave it, my mother absolutely loves it just like you do! So I try to pick it up whenever I see it in the stores. However that's very interesting - I didn't know that there are people who read your fortune from the coffee - thanks for the interesting tidbit!

Oh... darn! I will never have a turkish coffee reader reading my fortune because I don't like coffee. Turkish or not LOL My sister loves it. So does her daughter. I used to drink lots of coffee, and maybe I would have liked it then, but haven't had any coffee ever since I woke up one day and didn't like the taste anymore. It's good when we are able to enjoy something we like a lot :)

I've never had it but know some folks who swear by it. Do you know how it's made and what makes it so thick? Speaking of coffee, I started a discussion to note that Tim Horton's recently opened its first stores in New York City. I had an iced cappuccino the other day on the way to work... the perfect drink for a hot summer day!

I cannot say that I have ever had Turkish coffee. Hard to see how a reader can read mud, but there are lots of traditions, so I am sure you are right. Do you put milk and sugar in Turkish coffee? So that you have a sweeter experience clear to the bottom of the cup.

I like Turkish coffee and I drink it once a while. When in Europe I noticed many people drinking Turkish coffee. I believe in USA most people never tried it... I wouldn't eat the coffee mud...but Turkish coffee has a taste that hard to have even with espresso...hmmm...maybe today is good day for Turkish coffee... Do you add cardamon to your coffee?
