Turkish Coffee: A Dino Guide

Dear Aunty Em,

I know Shelly said she would make coffee and show you how but she fell asleep. I took over and made it as I have watched enough times by now to be able to do it.

image

Step One: get a turkish coffee pot.

image

Step Two: Fill it up with water to the bend in the pot.

image

Step Three: Add a spoon of sugar to the water and stir.

image

Step Ladder: This is a three cup pot so add three spoons of finely ground coffee and spread it out a little without squashing it down.

image

Step Five: Set it to a medium heat.

image

Step Six: Watch from a safe distance. An unwatched coffee pot ALWAYS boils over.

image

Step Seven: Try not to freak out when it begins to resemble the tar pits that got your cousin Lenny.

image

image

Step Eight: Keep watching and listening til it starts to bubble like this.

image

image

Evil Stepmother: When the coffee all goes under the bubbles take it off the heat.

image

Step Ten: Get your coffee cups ready.

image

image

Step Eleven: Spoon out the coffee grounds and put it in the coffee cups. A spoonful per cup.

image

image

Step Twelve: Stir and appreciate the lovely crema.

image

image

Step Thirteen: Pour.

image

Stepford Wives: Wonder how long it will be before you are able to pour coffee without spilling a lot of it beside each cup.

image

Step Fifteen: Burn your fingertips bringing the coffee to the table.

image

Step Sixteen: Wake up your human and feed them coffee.

image

image

Step Right Up: Don’t forget that this stuff needs to settle and never swirl the coffee while drinking it because you end up with a mouth full of grounds. The last bits of your cup of coffee are to be approached carefully.

Drinking this is akin to pumping normal coffee into your veins. Enjoy!

With love,
Your dino buddy xx
