‘Qahwa’

June 19, 2014

Arabic coffee. With all that may go wrong in the world, nothing can beat the soothing ritual of that perfect cup of coffee. This coffee is served just a teensy bit at a time. It’s simmered for six or seven hours, then kept to sit for a month or more, becoming more mellow and rich the longer it sits. This coffee that I had was aged for a month! It’s spiced with cardamon and is not sweetened. You are supposed to indicate that you don’t want a refill by shaking your cup, otherwise they keep refilling and refilling.. I didn’t know. Next time!

    I love your coffee posts! This is so interesting. I never knew there was such a ritual for the aging process. What does the title “Qahwa” mean?
