What's in a Turkish coffee?


Good question, Carol! I had thought to explain, but was (literally) running out of the house when I had finished the post...
Turkish coffee is a *method* of making coffee and not a type of bean or roast...powdered coffee (about 6 grams per 65 mL water... or 1+ Tbs in 1/2 C water) is boiled in a small pot *with* a sugar cube or two, then the whole is poured into an espresso size cup and the 'dregs' of powder sink to the bottom of the cup. No milk. I like mine with just one sugar cube.


very nice post! i was recently in that area (sd desserts and pubcakes) and saw alforon.i'll have to look for abraj next time and stop by. i like the look of that falafel appetizer. i think my husband would enjoy that turkish coffee too.


Great post, Cathy. Always thrilled to find another place in SD open late - the fact that it's tasty Med food is a bonus!


Alforon and its bread based items are *the* best, cc. All of the other food items at Abraj were really fresh and wonderful and apparently organic. I choose coffee or tea or water as a beverage with my meals lately. Having Greek gyros and Turkish coffee tasted so right.
Thanks, Ish. The food here is great. Parts of the mall seem to be pretty busy in the late evening.
