Hi all, Well, I purchased an Ibrik from Tom, it got here and I did my first Turkish Coffee (Sugar, no cardamom). Ground the powder in my Mazzer Mini, and did the 3 foams. To say it was delicious was an understatement. I'm Hooked. Now I can Press Pot, Vac Pot, Pull Shot, Turkish. But no drip. Awwww........ Mark -- No virus found in this outgoing message.

Mark, If you'd care to share it, I'd love to hear a detailed description of your Turkish coffee process, i.e., what you did, what were the cues, and what were the effects.

Mark, Sounds like I should rush you my copy about addictive behavior that my family keeps putting on my desk. We used to have a CSA group that required 4 roasting and 4 brewing methods to qualify - but then it progressed to whole homes full of stuff. You sound like a qualified member of the advanced group.

Heating was problematic at best on the electric stove but it was delicious!

Brian Kamnetz wrote: <Snip> Hiyo, Well, I don't think I did anything that required the Ph.D........overkill, I guess....anyway I put my 4 tbsp Mazzer Mini power-powdered Prince beans into the ibrik, added 8 oz of water, some sugar and stirred a lot to get it all mixed. Next, put the ibrik on the gas stove on medium heat until the foam began to levitate. Waited for it to slowly levitate to the top, took it off, waited 20 sec or so, gave the TOP layer a stir to break the "crust" that I felt was kinda holding the foam down, put it back on, it foamed more quickly (turned the heat to medium low flame. Took it off, repeated after 20 more sec (no crust breaking this time), took it off and let it sit for 1 min, decanted and swilled it down. Hope that helps. BUT NOW I'M SO HAPPY!!! Harvey showed up today with 5# of Aged Sumatra!!!!!! Oh, aged coffee, how I have MISSED you......mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm! But I digress...... YMMV Mark -- No virus found in this outgoing message.
