Your caffeinated concoctions go way beyond just another cuppa Joe. They are truly 'Drip Grind Works of Art!' Are these of your own concoction, created right there in Oldsarge's Dining Hall? The creative winds seem to be picking up on the picturesque "banks of the Willamette! ;)

No, my tastes in coffee, while not plain, aren't as elaborate as that. Now if I spent as much effort on coffee and I do on soup and pasta sauce, it would be a different story. I pretty much stick to large mugs of café au lait with the occasional Americano.

I have become a fan of Turkish coffee lately (a kind of strong coffee with sugar and cardamon), usually served with something sweet (my preference is kounaffa).

It hits a lot of marks:
- flavor
- exoticism
- pretty tools
- "social" coffee

I'm not making it myself (yet) - I have a coffee shop near my house which features it - but when I can get around to investing in the paraphernalia (preferably during a visit to Turkey) I'll have a go.

That is gorgeous. Not nearly as beautiful but still quite handsome, you can pick up a very nice ibrik for about $15.


Learning how to make proper Turkish sounds like a lot of fun.

There used to be a restaurant in L.A. that featured belly dancers and Turkish coffee. Ah, those were the days!

With a never ending drip flowing into them, why are those cups of espresso not overflowing? :icon_scratch: LOL, it's got to be magic!

Have you ever scene the movie "The Bishop's Wife." It's one of my favorite Christmas movies. In it, there's a scene where Cary Grant, playing an angel, keeps refilling a bottle of wine just by pointing at it (he's my kind of angel).

I looked, but can't find a video of it, but if you've seen it - or see it - you'll get the reference to the coffee mugs.
