Good Eats

Turkish Coffee has a somewhat similar equivalent in traditional Cowboy Coffee. The principal is basicly the same. One is less formal as to what type of utensils and setting. Cowboy coffee is pretty easy to make. All one needs is a sturdy pot, some good hot coals, water, and some ground coffee. Basicly fill a pan with water and dump coffee grounds into the pan. Set the pan on the hot coals for about 20-25 minutes, take it out. Pour a little cold water over the top to settle the grounds. Skim the surface with the cups to get yer coffee. Easy. Add various things to coffee if you like.

Something that goes good with hardy coffee. Dutch Oliebollen.
