Current obsession: Turkish Coffee Cups

Ornate Silver Turkish Coffee Cup with lid
Turkish Coffee and Turkish delight :)

These Turkish coffee cups are so beautiful. They are espresso sized as Turkish Coffee is so strong, I have been told this is to ensure the Sufi's stay awake through the night to pray and meditate, (dont hold me to this).

Sadly I am not a big coffee drinker and they are too small for my Tri-daily cup of tea but they are so pretty and ornate that I am tempted to get one anyway.... lots of little cups of tea is do-able...

The bottom picture is a coffee cup that is available from The Turkish Emporium, there are however some really beautiful Turkish Coffee sets like this one from ebay, complete with Turkish Delight Bowl

Ohhhh, I can smell the rich black deliciousness from here :)

Ever since I first tasted real Turkish coffee in a little Turkish bar in the late seventies, I fell in love with it.
And, as for Turkish Delight... my sweet, sweet tooth can't get enough of this rosewater delicacy.

And the two together? Bliss.

Did you know you can make rooibos espresso? It'd look beautiful in one of those cups.
