Turkish coffee

Okay, so you've probably heard of this one. Turkish coffee has been around longer than cars, the United States and the Mona Lisa. The earliest evidence comes from 15th-century Asia, and the first-known coffeehouse opened two centuries later in Constantinople.

The method is simple enough: you immerse grounds in hot (but not boiling) water long enough for the flavor to seep in.

Grounds settle at the bottom, and you drink, doing your best not to get a bunch of mud in your teeth until the end, when you have a heart-to-heart with yourself about just how much joy that last sip will give you and your stained teeth. You've been warned.
