1) From: michael brown
There's a guy at a gas station near where i live that i frequent.  Turns ou=
t he was born in Yemen!  I told him one of my fav coffees right now is the =
Yemen Santa'ani and i'd bring him some.  He LOVES it.  Said it tastes like =
Santa'ani.  Must be some great memories tied to flavors from his youth.  An=
yway, he said if i kept making it he'd buy it.  But he also said if i got s=
ome Egyptian coffee he knew several guys that would buy it.  I just nodded =
my head as if i knew what he was talking about. =
Egyptian coffee?  I'm thinking that maybe this is a brewing method, not nec=
essarily a region that it comes from, but i may be wrong?  Thoughts?  Ideas=
?  Experience? =

Hmmm, IIRC Egyptians revere cats. The Civet is often mistaken for a Cat. You
KNOW where this is leading:-)
Seriously though I believe you've got it right. Egyptian coffee is a brewing
method similar to Turkish, not a coffee bean origin.

The amusing thing about Nescafé is that in hebrew, Nes means  =
"miracle", so it means "miracle coffee".
The miracle is that people actually drink the stuff....

Search, using combination of electrical 1's and 0's :
Egyptian Method *Coffee* The best coffee for this style is something basic
and unflavored, like Cafe Najjar. The Egyptians make a THICK brew... use
perhaps a tablespoon of coffee for 3 oz of water.  *Spices* A dash of
cardamom powder, or one or two cardamom seeds. Sugar level is moderate --
for the most typical brew, maybe 3/4 tsp.  *Technique*
   1. Fill the pot to just below the narrowest point with water
   2. Heat the water at medium heat for 1-2 minutes (the point is to get the
   water warm, not to boil it)
   3. Add the coffee and spices. Stir.
   4. Keep heating at medium heat until the coffee foams. You want to keep
   it on the heat as long as possible, until just BEFORE one of the followi=
ng
   two things happens:
      - The coffee foams over onto the burner (this is bound to happen to
      you eventually)
      - The water boils (this will wreck your foam)
   5. Remove pot from heat. Reduce heat to low or medium-low. Wait 20-30
   seconds
   6. Return pot to heat. Repeat the heating step above
   7. Repeat the last two steps one more time
   8. Quickly pour the foam (and as little other coffee as possible) into
   your cup. Allow the rest of the coffee to settle for 1-2 minutes. Then
   slowly pour the rest of the coffee into your cup until you start to pour
   sludge. Leave as much sludge in the pot as possible.
   9. Allow the coffee to settle for another 1-2 minutes. This is a really
   good time to wash your pot.
  *Results* The resulting coffee should be fairly free of grounds, fairly
smooth (compared to other middle eastern styles) until you reach the bottom.
Avoid the sludge unless you're pulling an all-nighter! The foam is the
trickiest part to get right. At its best, it should be thick and creamy. The
cardamom should be assertive but not overpowering.
