Out fishing with Annie on his lap, a cigar in one hand and a ginger ale in the other, watching the sunset.

Turkish is my favorite. I usually make it at home in my own Ibrik.

I have no idea what you're talking about, so here's a bunny-shaped pancake with a pancake-shaped bunny on its head.

coffee is ground to basically a powder.

An Ibrik gets HEAPING amounts of coffee. Something like one heaping (as high as you can make it) tablespoons per (damasi style) cup. You put water in first, then coffee on top (it floats). Boil SLOWLY until it just starts to bubble over, pull from heat. Repeat this 3 times (most coffee is cooked in by then).



It sounds super strong, but its suprisingly mild with an amazing flavor.

Depends on what you mean by "hard".

If you work fast, don't get your head in jam about some pieces tearing, then yes, it's easy. Time consuming, but easy. I can make a 13x9 of baklava in about 40 minutes. Then, it bakes. Having a partner to help cut that time.

Ice-coffee in summer. Brun in Vienna. Turkish or Cuban after a good, heavy meal.
