Turkish coffee is, as a rule, a good bit stronger than drip or percolated coffee. Simply because of the way it's prepared. Even stronger than your darker cajun/chicory blends.

Of course, there's nothing that says you can't take some chicory coffee (mine is Luzianne White Label) and grind it finer. That's what I did.

I do know of one brand of Greek coffee (prepared the same way) that has chicory. Loumidis Papagalos. I'll have to pick some up so I can compare the two.

i love tea, and coffee...also spirits like scotch, aged rum, whiskey, and bourbon.

i drink them all with hookah, havent found a real bad combination yet...heh. *I use a regular French Press to make my coffee, takes about 10 minutes for everything and it always comes out great.

Have never tried drinking Turkish coffee while smoking. Will definitely try it the next time I do. However, I can say that Apple tea and shisha = heavenly.

I tried makin some turkish coffee the other day with some italian espresso, pretty sure i need something else, would have to go to an arabic type shop or something?? Someone said it was supposed to be strong but it didnt taste/feel that way to me, i did enjoy it though, i prepared it based off of **********s video. Smoked nakhla sweet melon whilst drinkin the coffee and finishing up my final essay for the year.

Turkish coffee is good but better with pastries, etc to even out the sweetness. Also, I don't know that alot of us who are into hookah now would really enjoy combining what we smoke know (alot of non traditional flavored tobacco) with something like turkish coffee. Maybe a mint or something like that, but not all the time...

As for you who have never tried it, get involved. HJ has a good brand of coffee that is good for preparing turkish style coffee (because there is no turkish blend, we're talking about a method of preparting coffee here) along with the pots to do it. I would have bought some along time ago, but my inlaws handle that.

Sambooka, turkish coffee and greek coffee are EXACTLY the same thing. Greeks call is greek, turkish call it turkish. Thats the main difference. Other that that, the turkish prefer it a bit stronger and more bitter.
The brand you mentioned is one of the most common in Greece. It's good but nothing special. i have no idea what you can get in the US so cant really recommend anything

Don't worry. Ask any Arab or Turk and they'll tell you they're completly different. No matter how similar their coffees may look or taste.
The Greeks will say the same thing, too.
I think it comes from thousands of years of not really liking each other.

Arabs if am not mistaken use cardamon in the coffee. Greeks and Turks dont. We are making coffee in the excact same way but it is true that we hate admitting it.

hmmm cardamom in coffee, interesting, i need to get some coffee flavored tobacco to try this before i spend my time to make a drink i usually dont like with it.

i guess this is one thing to add to my list of things to do in life, gota give beverages/foods a chance as long as it fits my dietary restriction

kivwa, you have to have coffee grind to a powder in order to make Turkish coffee...espresso is not fine enough...coffee has to dissolve in the water like when you make hot chocolate...Turkish coffee is a "method" of making coffee, so you have to do it as is prescribed...otherwise it would not be Turkish coffee...you have to have a proper coffee *** (in the right size) and prepare it over slow heat...and let it come to a froth...mmm...now that's delicious...and drink it slowly...sip by sip as you relax and savor the taste...

Guess what? 10 minutes ago I made Turkish coffee, drank it, and this is the FIRST post I see. I was just about to light up my coals so I won't be drinking Turkish and smoking this time. Mind you, I would never drink Turkish cofee while smoking fruit flavoured shisha. Mint, chocolate, coffee flavoured and my bowl (soon) of Nakhla Zagloul non-flavoured tobacco would be hot.
I'm gonna fess up. I drank "mud" . That's what we call Turkish coffee which is mixed in a glass of boiling water. Its great, but not as fine as the slow cooking of it in a Finjan ***. I didn't have any pots around though 2 weeks ago I bought a 5 kilo gas balloon to make coffee on and for my coals.

Arabic coffee is called "mira" which is nothing like the Turkish coffee..it is made by boiling the coffee beans for at least 3 hours and also adding lots of spices like cardamom and even cinnamon...it doesn't taste bad but it is not the Turkish method...Turkish method evolved in the palaces of the Ottoman Empire where the Sultan had 40 people dedicated just for making coffee...they perfected it by roasting the beans and grinding it to a powder which is very different than the above mentioned method..
