The grind should be like flour or talcum powere
At first I suggest purchasing a jar or a local Turkish deli to grind some Turkish coffee then if you like it go for a grinder
Turkish delicatessens will have hand grinders

Thanks for the tips KK, much appreciated.

Operation 'Türk Kahve' is well underway. 😉

Just have to duck down and pick the set of Cezve up and I should be good to go.

Got some good ratio tips as opposed to the 'one teaspoon' measurement I've seen described.
I'll play around with it and see how I go. I anticipate I'll enjoy it.

Yes KK, I read that thread and have spent a deal of time thereafter youtubing. It has piqued my interest. I have a Turkish friend who lives around the corner who I'd like to surprise with a traditional coffee when he next comes over. The Cezves are easy to come by here and aren't expensive. My biggest hurdle in the process will be the grinding. I have a hand grinder but the thought of setting that to fine and grinding enough for two Turkish coffees fills me with dread, although I haven't tried yet, it may not be that bad.. I have a question on grinders which I'll post over in that part of the forum after this.
Anyway thanks for the welcome.

Welcome MJ74

A tip or another method for non machine coffee brewing is the Greek / Turkish style

Hi everyone. Love a good coffee but am new to knowing what exactly goes into the making of one. I have read a lot and experimented a little in recent times. I've been roasting my own beans for a short time, progressing from a popper to a heat gun and a pot (dog bowl type method). This will then progress to a coretto type set up but without the bread maker. A story for another time.

I don't have any fancy machines, but make a coffee that I enjoy with a stovetop Mokka, sometimes French press,sometimes pour over with the latter being a rare occasion.

My main interest lies in the blending of coffee beans to create something that hits my preferred taste on the head for each individual brew method.

I am Australian but live in Northern Germany. I look forward to learning from you all and participating when I can.

Cheers

I think Paul's preliminary explanation then the How-To Video pretty well hits the mark for its intended audience. I guess it could be titled along the lines of a Basic Tutorial and followed up with a more in depth one later on for all the coffee geeks out there who want to pretend to be scientific about it all.

This one gets my vote...  8)

Mal.

That’s a good idea Mal. Call it ‘Getting Started’ or something then have one or two optional follow ups that have more depth and detail.
