Turkish Coffee in Arcadia


I don't prescribe to this PC nonsense about calling Turkish Coffee Ελληνικός καφές: Rather avoid the situation and specify it by the degree of sweetness - here is a perfect example of a pair of "sketos".

  1. :o) My grandfather was born in Turkey but his father before him was born in the same place but under Greek rule. We call it Turkish coffee and I enjoy making it more than drinking it!

  2. Hi Nikos,

    Are you still in Greece?...I was supposed to be doing an Iron Butt over Greece last week but my passport has got lost in the labyrinth of Turkish bureaucracy, we could have met up!

    Cheers,

    Dave...
