Has this been done before and would I be offending any senior members here if I were to start this?

In the meantime, I'm winding down the day with a Turkish coffee (beans from Yirgacheffe). This cup is actually 3oz.

How did you make the Turkish coffee?

I used a paper tea filter bag this morning to make a cup. I'm going on a trip and need to keep the coffee equipment to a bare minimum so I thought I'd try this. I didn't expect much using a tea bag but it was actually pretty good. There was a little silt at the bottom... obviously that's not a problem if you're used to Turkish coffee.

Hey jpender - made it on the stove top using a dzezve pot. I've seen compact electric Turkish pots for sale, though I don't know what kind of results they yield. My Beko Turkish coffee maker is pretty small but I wouldn't travel with it; small enough for my office though. A Seattle-based coffee co. sells instant ultra fine-grind coffee packs (single serving) that's not bad, in a pinch.

Very finely ground coffee beans (even finer than for espresso!) are boiled traditionally in a brass or copper pot (cezve), usually with sugar, and served in a small cup where the grounds are allowed to settle: The coffee and the desired amount of sugar are stirred until all coffee sinks and the sugar is dissolved. With the spoon removed the pot is put on moderate heat. When the temperature is too high, the coffee does not have enough time to extract all the aromas. No stirring is done at this point, as it would destroy the foam. Just as the liquid starts boiling, the pot is removed from the stove. It is usually kept off the heat for a short time, then brought to boil a second and a even third time, before the coffee is poured slowly into the cups, lifting the pot higher and higher as the pouring continues in order to get the thickest possible layer of foam.

In some arab countries cardamon, cinamon or cloves are added to the ground coffee.
