    Dude, I'm from Istanbul, and we don't brew coffee in sand or anything. This must be some Middle Eastern / Arabic thing, hence the language, which I do not understand.

    If I remember correctly, good Turkish coffee will quickly develop a thick foam very similar to the color of the coffee (kind of a weird foam as it looks like the coffee itself). Maybe that is what is happening.

    Move it to heat and develop foam, pore some out...repeat.

    Use firewood or charcoal for the real thing. On the other hand, I'm curious what the guy on the video says. It's obviously Arabic. Anyone care to translate?

    It is supposed to be a constant, low heat between the point of not-foaming and foaming.

    Once you get the sand close to that temp, it holds the heat well at a constant temp.



    However, it looks like it's in your neck of the woods so I defer to you...
    :)

    (Wish I had some access to it here, it was very good when I last had it!)

    My wife is Turkish...we gave out cesves as gifts for the guests at our wedding.

    It's my favorite kind of coffee in the world, but a bit labor intensive. My wife figured out a method where she applies the same technique, but uses a small saucepan over the stove. That way we can make 2 or 3 full cups (or 4-5 Turkish cups) in one larger batch. It's not quite as amazing as the traditional way, but it's still a fantastic cup.

    I had a demitasse at a greek restaurant in Manchester that had a similar look. I swear the spoon stood up by itself. And so did my hair after I drank it.
