A Conversation for Ways to Make Good Coffee

Turkish Coffee is actually somewhat stronger than espresso, at least in terms of caffeine content. The stuff is just served in even smaller cups.

No it isn't. It looks very strong because of all the coffee grounds in it, but it is actually only about half the strength of espresso. You can boil the beans as much as you like but the caffeine won't all come out unless you use pressure, which is the principle the espresso machine works on. The strongest coffee of all is called "ristretto". It is made by turning on the coffee machine but not letting it run for very long. The strongest blackest coffee comes out at the start and this is served in half an espresso cup.
