I've been meaning to write about one of the best coffees I've tried for quite a while. And now, since I've recently tasted what could possibly be the worst one I've decided to post an entry on Turkish coffee as both brands are Turkish.
Now, I am no coffee expert or even a gourmet. And I'm lazy. I have coffee pots but usually never use them, simply throwing groud coffee in a mug and filling it with boiling water. Anyway, here is the one I thought was delicious:
Ok, this was really my pack, I saved it:
It is called Mehmet Efendi. My friend brought it as a souvenir from Istanbul. If I'm ever in Turkey I'll surely be looking for it. Unfortunately, it's not available in Ukraine.
But, also unfortunately, this one is:
And that's the one I don't recommend. It's not so much the taste that was the problem, I mean, tastes differ, right? The problem with it was some sort of chemical, non-organic component in the taste and scent of it. I fail to understand what that could've been, but definitely not coffee.
The color of the powder (it was really rather a fine powder than grounds) was light-brown, almost orange. I've managed to finish it only by mixing it with the other coffee. A few months ago, I'd simply throw it away though. But you know, with the economical crisis and all ... or maybe it was a death wish
That was sweet :) But I mean, electronic books, now - coffee, then what: shoes in the wishlist? Don't tempt me.
Besides, I am proudly supporting local Ukrainian coffee brands lately. Quite drinkable, cheap and helps local economy.
