Syrian coffee

You may think this recipe is very simple, but if you try it, you will certainly be seduced by the flavour of this spiced coffee! And when you sip it, maybe accompanying it with some rose loukoum, you’ll feel just like among the pages of “One Thousand and One Nights” 😀 .

syrian coffeeThe paculiarity this coffee is adding some cardamom pods finely ground to the boiling water. For a better flavouring, crush the pods just before preparing the coffee, since cardamom is one of those spices whose flavour fades quickly. But if you can only find the cardamon powder, it will be fine too… Just add a bit more! 🙂 .

If you do not know this spice, you can find some information in our post about the trip to Annecy of last summer 🙂
