    Having spent some time in the Middle East I have developed an affinity for Turkish coffee. Everyone has a different name for it. During a recent trip to Macedonia in a junk shop I found and purchased an old grinder for that fine grind. I will be using this on my next outdoor excursion. Has anyone else tried it? It is like cowboy coffee but the finer grind improves extraction. I like freshly ground beans. It is easily made.

    Yep I have a grinder that came from Istanbul (via a colleague of mine) and I have a couple of different stove top makers to extract the last milligram of caffeine from the grind. I only ever buy un-ground beans unless I am going bush and trying to keep things lighter.

    I have had my fair share of "Turkish coffee" I think anyone who has spent time in the middle east can understand the significance of coffee and tea in their everyday lives. i personally always went for the teas but also liked the coffee.

    A guy at work brought some coffee from Indonesia. It is like powder it’s so finely ground. I haven’t tried it yet.
