David, I recently tried Turkish coffee and it was just okay for me. Didn't love it, but didn't hate it either. The gritty sludge texture, I really did not care for, which was floating on the top and bottom. The middle layer seem to be more liquid and pretty smooth and did not taste bad. I ate the small piece of ginger candy that was served with it and sipped the coffee, it was quite enjoyable, but only the middle layer. The sludge and grit was a bit much for me. But dang, this stuff is heavily caffienated and powerful.
