I grew up on the stuff. It is good but every single person who has tried and they were not Greek or Turkish gave the same feedback as @J....soy....

I had it once, from a middle eastern restaurant in a strip mall that my ex and I were picking up to go food.

I figured that I had just got, like, the end of the pot, at the end of the day, where they had let some of the grounds seep into the coffee.  Then I googled Turkish coffee and saw that it generally has debris in it.

I can't say I enjoyed it, but it gave me the caffeine boost I needed that night.

And who knows? Maybe I didn't get their best cup, being at the end of the day and whatnot. I'd like to give it its proper day in court from an esteemed Turkish coffee vendor one day.

I am pretty sure it is meant to be drank black, or with sugar i.e. no milk. The coffee generally does not hit as much as an espresso. It is actually the weakest coffee you can have. This is because of the roast level where a good portion of the caffeine is killed. I have been drinking this coffee since I was 8 yo. When I first tried Nescafe in my teens, it felt like I was on speed. My hometown used to have at least 5 roasters in the town centre and every morning they would prepare a new batch. The aroma was something else/incredible.

Edit: Re: the sediment thing. Once served the coffee, you are meant to let it set until it is at drinkable temperature. By that time most of the ground coffee should have set. I must add here that sipping this coffee is usually done in a "slurping" fashion, meaning that you do not really tip the cup to the side but instead suck the supernatant fluid.

I had Turkish coffee in one of those classic "Greek" cups at a falafel place. Gritty, boiling hot black coffee consumed at a sun-facing window seat with sand-like falafel and too much red sauce... just how it's supposed to be.

For whatever reason when I moved to my new spot I started saving coffee bags. I guess I wanted to visually see how much I consume per year. Hope Iím not the only one hoarding bags, but I might be.

haha, hobbies certainly can lead to bouts of madness.  I don't keep any bags, but I do cut out the labels from really good lots.

my local would refill the bags which is a good idea.  For awhile when I drove around for part of my job, I'd just buy coffee and throw the cups in the passenger side.  You realize pretty fast how much you drink and the idea of shit going into a landfill.  I've got a decent commuter cup now and try not to ever buy a cup.

i find this so cool lol kinda wish i kept some bags now. how fast are you going thru a bag? a typical 300g bag lasts me 15 days (I do 20g coffee, 320 g water for my daily pour-over recipe)

I'd call myself a coffee hobbyist; never worked as a barista or anything but have always enjoyed trying to make good coffee at home and exploring how things can be made. Gotta say, as I'm sitting here sipping it, starbucks instant is not the most terrible thing in the world. Feelings about the company aside, it's been really nice to let go of my routine a little bit to just get a little caffeine in quickly. Especially on mornings like today where I'm trying to get back in an early morning run groove.

Got me thinking though; anyone out there have any interesting things they do with instant? I recently saw a video about adding some cold water to the grounds before adding hot to reduce the chance of burning them, and placebo or not that has provided a bit of a smoother cup. Anything else worth trying?

Bought close to 9 lbs of different local roasts to take on my move. Mad coffee. Im debating whether to vacuum seal and freeze the beans, saving my favorite blends for special occasions, supplementing with other new england oriented stuff
stay high, lay low

Iím about a bag a week give or take depending on bag size. My usual is 18g coffee and 280g of water, also a pour over via v60. I make 2-3 coffees a day.

Recently I got to know someone with a whole sale account so I just picked up four bags at cost, which is great. These 340g bags end up costing me $14 or so.

Damn! This is honestly cool. This reminds me of Nicholas Felton a.k.a. Feltron. He publishes an annual report on his life - how many conversations had, miles traveled, pictures taken, etc. He gets deep into the minutiae of his life and itís popular in some corners of the internet.

This looks like a helpful gauge to see what brands & roasts you kept coming back to, which ones you mightíve forgotten about, all without only relying on your memory alone.

Thanks for the Feltron reminder. I had forgotten about him but I remember years back loving his annual reports.

As for my stack, it does help jog the memory by saving them and looking back. Going forward I think Iím gonna write notes on the backside for better recalling favourites or things I didnít like.

To whoever mentioned a Puelo-Esqe art piece my mom said the same thing. I gotta check sheís not into numerology and picking up garbage.
