We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
How to make Moroccan/Turkish/Greek/Arabian coffee. Delicious stuff even without any spices - just sugar. I prefer it to espresso. You need a dallah or ibrik or whatever it's called to make it properly. Alas, not available at Dunkin or Starbucks. Why not?
A machine can not make it. I think it could become more popular, for sure, than the crappy, watery espresso one is typically served in the US.
There's a Middle Eastern café in a big town near me. All kinds of food and several coffees.
I've tried Turkish coffee and I like it but yikes it packs a wallop. If I have two cups of it I start chattering like a chipmunk.
Also really, really good is Brazilian cafezinho. It's easy to make and will put pep in your step. It surprises me that with all the coffee "gourmets" in this country coffee recipes such as these are unknown in shops. Maybe in NYC?
Several years ago I had the Moroccan coffee at a restaurant. Wow! It was delicious. Great afternoon pick me up. Lots of spices but so delicious. Does not replace that first cup of coffee in the morning, but what a treat.
