Has anyone had coffee prepared this way? How does it compare (unsweetened) to an espresso or a regular old cup of coffee? I have been reading about it a little and am quite interested in trying some. I need to find a good ibrik and pick up a Turkish coffee grinder before can even attempt it, but I also have questions on whether I need to pick up some type traditional beans that would be used in a cup from Turkey.
Anyone have any comments or pointers? I have been looking at ibrik's (or briki's) on eBay, but am not too keen on purchasing them there. I haven't seen anything locally, so I will have to buy online. I really wish the Turkish/Greek food place I go to for Gyro's and other Turkish/Greek food served it, but they didn't even know what I was talking about. I am sure the owner (he is actually Turkish) would know, but he rarely is in his restaurant.
