Urgent coffee break – Serious in Syria

October 16, 2012

Tags: , , ,

Coffee holds a place of honor in some cultures, and The Cookery appreciates a flavorful cup of Arabic coffee. Make this coffee on the stove top, tune out the day’s noise, and tune in to serious matters.

Serious matters

There must be countless ways to brew the perfect cup of coffee, but this is not that cup. If you don’t have a small Middle Eastern coffee pot, ubiquitous in the region, try a small sauce pan. Bring two cups of water to a boil. Add two heaping tablespoons of pure ground Arabic coffee to boiling water. Stir. Bring back to a full froth, bubbling boil. Some purists may remove from heat and bring to a boil yet again, but we’ll keep these directions easy to navigate. A spoonful of sugar per person will set the tone for your coffee break and leave you with something to savor.

    I’ll have to try that method sometime.

    If you have access to finely ground Arabic coffee of reasonable quality, count your blessings. It will produce a great cup to share with friends and neighbors.
