Ok, I’m in Turkey so I decide I have to have Turkish Coffee, right? I mean, I drank the stuff ALL THE TIME in Serbia. I even wrote a howto on making Serbian/Turkish Coffee. I had good stuff and I had bad stuff; however, I had THE WORST cup of Turkish Coffee I ever had today. In Turkey.
I went to Starbucks (I know…I never did come across any cafes that looked like plain ordinary coffee shops). This is what I got:
See that stuff on the handle. Grounds. Yep…grounds. I don’t know what the guy making it did, but my coffee had grounds floating in it. NASTY. Once I got done drinking it, the rest of the coffee was in the bottom of the cup (like it should be). Who knows; however, I just know that this cup o’ joe was hands down the worst cup of Turkish Coffee I have ever had.
