Afternoon coffee break in my workshop with the Optimus 199.
Very good. Any pictures
Yeah...pics or it didn't happen. lol
I have no clue why it won't show. I inserted the URL in the media icon. It showed the code but won't display.
Ok so I'm heavily into coffee-what kind of set up is that? Not the stove.
It's Turkish coffee. You you need a Turkish hand grinder and cezve or ibrik coffee pot. I'll send you a private massage to a link that will explain it all as I'm uncertain if non stove links are allowed.
WoW, the 199 seems to work good.
I have seen that kind of grinder on eBay, now I know what you have to do with.
For Turkish coffee brewing method my coffee to water ratio needs exactly a 3 minutes brew time. The 199 has excellent flame/heat control for what I've notice so far. I've been using an MRS superfly for many years which is a wonderful burner also but not as fun as the Optimus.
Beautifully done! I give you two thumbs up .
Awesome man. I have yet to get a 199.
Kerophile-sadly some of those posters are no longer with us.
Hi @8R Pete . Indeed. Gone but not forgotten.
Yes I look at them and see the knowledge they had. Never forgotten
Funny, I’ve always heard that type of brewing described as “Greek coffee.”
PS: I knew a Serb who called it Serbian coffee....
Yes you can call it Turkish, Greek, Arabic, Bosnian, Serbian, etc. It’s basically prepared the same way.
Hi, @Nico ,
I am blessed to have two Optimus 199's. One is setup for kerosene, and the other for Meths, with the PROPER retrictor, which is actually one from SVEA. Burns Meths very nicely with that addition to the burner. And, as you already know, the 199 LOVES kerosene!
Sweet Bride and I enjoyed your video, and also the accompanying proper music! We've worked in Turkey twice, once for a bit over three weeks. We were expecting to see Turkish coffee available everywhere, but that was most certainly NOT the case!! At that time, we found that most Turkish folks drink Nescafe, and Nestea!!! To find a place that actually makes and serves Turkish coffee, you have to go to special restaurants and coffee shops. Interesting, no!?!
We loved Turkey, by the way. The people, and food, and the outstandingly wonderful history and sites made that trip a very special one, indeed!! We traveled all over the central part of Turkey, and then from Istanbul, took a bus to catch a ferry across the Bosphorus, which was wonderful, and we continued our adventure by traveling down the Western Edge of Turkey, ending in Bodrum, and flying back to Istanbul, then home! Sorry for rambling. I'm not sure a trip like that would even be possible with today's political climate in Turkey. But, we have very special memories of our time there.
Thanks, again, for the video, music, and comments. Take care, and God Bless!
Every Good Wish,
When I was stationed in Germany 2005-2006 some small cafes had Turkish coffee. I spent many mornings off downtown Bamberg drinking in those places.
