    Sand-heated Turkish coffee - GIF

    Turkish coffee served out of a Cezve container, heated by hot sand. Not sure what's happening here. Maybe something to do with the coffee consistency?

    Hot sand is a good way to get even heating. Watchmakers and hobbyists use hot sand beds when tempering springs. Coffee in a metal container might scorch if placed on a hot metal surface or over an open flame. At any rate, that's my SWAG.

    Furthermore, any coffee that boils over goes into the sand and does not gum up the heated surface below.

    Marv you nailed it the best Turkish coffee is boiled cooled and re boiled 3 times Using super heated sand not only speeds up the boiling with the expanded surface area in contact with the heat source the grinds do not become scorched to the bottom of the ladle boiling it 3 times ensures that the grinds are well emulsified and blended into the liquid and do not rapidly settle to the bottom of your fincan

    Never drink Turkish coffee in a regular cup it won't hole the heat long enough while you sip it and too much of the grounds will settle to be bottom which according to folklore can lead to bad fortune because it can not be properly read.
    Arabic coffee is the converse of this it is made from a select mixture of green beans and darker ones when it is brewed it is strained through a fiberous rope looking substance contained in the spout of the pot and will be a light amber color in some cultures and much darker for others. but never served with sugar and often very bitter but once you acquire the taste for it it is really quite good always served in very small containers much like Japanese ceremonial tea cups with out handles
