"Turpresso"? Turkish coffee with an espresso machine.

I did get that the same day that I wrote that comment My usual cups were dirty so I used a bowl shaped cup. Normally I use straight walled cups that do a better job at keeping the silt in the bottom. Even better if you can find cups with a wide bottom, like the ones from Sufi
