Topic: Turkish Fun (37 lines)
1) From: Jason Brooks
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.
