interesting... I just got back from a month in Turkey on a coffee tour,
visiting traditional cafes and the new third wave ones in Istanbul, and was
surprised to see that nearly all the people I sat with didn't put sugar in
their coffee, and of course, never milk. Either there's a new health
mentality or I'm with the wrong crowd. My girlfriend's mom is Turkish and
drinks five Turkish style coffees a day, never with sugar.
