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).
