ISRAELI BREAKFAST STAPLES RECIPES: Cardamon Coffee

Israeli Cardamom Coffee, a twist on middle eastern mud coffee- as found in Israeli coffee shops- is a delicious, sinful, spiced coffee that is easy to make and a unique pick me up! Normally served in small espresso cups to show off a light, fluffy foam- it also serves as a strong, flavorful mug for mornings you need more of a pick-me-up!

 INGREDIENTS:

  1. 8 oz water
  2. 1/4 cups ultra-finely ground coffee
  3. 4 cardamom pods, grounded (I grind them along with my coffee beans)
  4. 2 dashes cinnamon, under 1/4 tsp- I do two shakes out of a container of ground cinnamon- two pinches works, too
  5. 1 dash grated ginger
  6. sugar, if desired

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Add coffee, cinnamon, cardamom, ginger, sugar and water to your copper pot, making sure you do not fill to the top- you want a little room in case it boils up
  2. Give a good stir to incorporate- this is the only time you’ll stir the coffee so you don’t disturb the grounds at the bottom
  3. Heat the copper pot on a low flame over a stove. As it becomes hot, watch it closely- you do not want it to boil, or it will go everywhere! I like to pull it off the stove just before boiling
  4. Let it sit for about 20 seconds, and then add back to the heat- pulling it off again until near-boiling. Repeat once more if desired
  5. Let cool briefly, then serve in small cups (like espresso or demitasse cups)
