Armenian coffee


So my sister sends me some Armenian coffee, which is finely ground coffee and cardamom spice, which you boil unfiltered and drink. In my case, drink it with a little pig.
Turns out, of course, that it is commonly prepared ths way from Greece through the middle east, and is a strong little wallop in a tiny cup, promoting wakefulness and high levels of brain activity.

In other words, the good stuff!

Where might a tired mama, such as myself, score some of that??

You could always take a trip to Turkey or Greece, and such kindred places. I found out how glorious it is in Constantinople, but found where to get the coffee, although any good dark roast will do. And the itsy bitsy little maker, I Googled online. VERY finely ground coffee, steeped three times, to 'fighting' strength, quite heavily sweetend, and carefully sipped. Repeat as long as you're able and not climbing any walls. Gary could probably do this all day. I have to be more careful.
