Coffee is not by itself sticky. Proving the OP's point...and being a gurrrl.
You're a girl??
we live and learn. hehe
Coffee.. See, I live in the land where we use instant coffee. Oh I have beans, I first got my fingers burnt on real coffee years ago - I got a free
sample when I was scamming all those free samples from one of those free sample websites that collates free samples of samples to sample.
It was a small bag, and I had no idea what to do with them.. so I sat out the back, and I smashed them with a hammer under a plastic cover, and made
myself giddy from the aroma. I then looked into how best to use said macerated deep dark powder, and came upon the recipe of making Turkish style
Into the milk boiler it went, myself not having an ibrik, and added enough sugar to suit the details listed - sweet as heaven, dark as hell. I added
the water, and briefly stirred.
I then put it onto the flame, and watched.. it is true, a watched pot never boils.. but I persisted, and before long the describe foam appeared, and
just as the turgent foam started to encroach the lips of the boiler, I removed it from the heat. Scooped some foam into the cup, and poured 1 third
into it, and returned it to the flame, to repeat twice more.
I left as much of the coffee soil as I could, knowing there was enough in the cup to give me shivers.
With the recipe in view, I collected a cold class of water, and sat with my brew, taking a sip. It was HEAVEN. after each sip I refreshed my palette
with the water, and renewed the flavour. Oh My God !! in no time I had imbibed this devilishly narcotic brew and thought "Crikey, this is the wolfs
woof!" and wondered why I'd never ever tasted coffee in it's true form, ever before.
But yeah, we normally use instant. first thing of the day, it's too much of a chore to entertain such a ritual, even with a real and legitimate hand
worked turkish coffee grinder (takes 30-45 minutes to grind a cup, but the felt powder it creates is like powdered sugar) so bung in a teaspoon or 5
of instant, and off you go. don't hate me.
and as you take your cup of java away, you notice the specs of instant that remained from the spoon that spilled.
It is sticky as heck... sticks to the counter, the cloth, your fingers..
I think that's what I was intending to say in 2 lines, but sundays betray my abilities at times..
(I need one of those now, but it would curdle since my break from sobriety booo)
