Merry Christmas to all. Hope your season went well. For the Holidays, my boss gave us all a gift. To me fell a bag of *$'s Gold Coast blend. Well, it was the thought that counted. Brought it home from the office for playing while on the break. The other day, I tried my hand at my Ibrik, only used a time or two before. I took my 1L Ibrik, partially filled it and ground the old beans in a whirly blade grinder until it was dust. Added with some sugar and a touch of cinnamon. The brew timings Tom supplied didn't quite match my stove. But, after about 10 minutes, I had some Turkish coffee. What was interesting was that the front taste was way too bitter and nasty - the beans coming through. The wash was almost heavenly - the bitter with the sugar made it a thick syrup on the tongue. Can't wait to try it right.
