just made my first very own cup of turkish coffee. i’m over the moon with the result, really chuffed. now for those of you that can’t exactly understand why someone would be “over the moon” just over a cup of coffee, well it’s because making turkish coffee is considered an “art”. honestly my coffee wasn’t as delicious as the coffee’s i had in turkey, but for a first time attempt, i’ll take it.

using the tips i picked up in turkey and following the advice from “The Complete Book Of Turkish Cooking” by Ghillie Basan i’d say i’m about 70% of the way there. once i fully master the “art” of turkish coffee i will then learn how to read peoples fortunes….ok, maybe that’s a bit too ambitious.
