damn this is a good batch. The honey didn't shift too much, as has been known to happen when I start with it, and the caramel adds a nice hint to the overall texture of the flavor. There is almost zero bitterness, yet still maintaining the full depth of coffee flavor. Happilly, I didn't add too much sugar, either, so the sweetness is nicely balanced and doesn't hide the overall definition on the palate. As for the texture of the liquid, it's silky smoothe and flows over the tongue effortlessly, sliding almost unnoticed down the throat. There is a fine dust suspended, though, so after you get done with your sip there is still that distinctive signature that marks any good demitass of turkish.

overall, truly yummy. definately one of my better batches. My only lament is not having anyone here to share it with (the roomates aren't in the mood, which is understandable).

other than the distance between us and me being without major transportation. But yes, we should make plans to hang out sometime over the next few months you have off.

hrmm.. this weekend is pretty much over, what about next?

unfortunnately, much though I love sharing, it is the type of thing that you can't have long after it's made. So you're either there when it's ready or you miss out. :( sorry.

though I'm not against making some for you (if you want) when next we meet. Can't promise anything, though, as every batch is different.

totally!

I actually want to see how you make it (maybe we'll take pictures). Then I can come back when it's done.

Just let me know.

hehe.. document the process, as it were? :)

there's actually only about 15 or 20 minutes of time where you could leave and not miss something. We'd likely just play a game or something during that time. it's been *forever* since I last played set.

Most certainly. I love making my kawphy for others to experiance. It is a unique enough coffee experiance that I think anyone who likes coffee at all should try it at least once. Not everyone likes it, 'cause it can be too strong or too sweet or too something else. That doesn't bug me, I just like spreading the taste experiance to others. :)
