Saudi Coffee

This is my mother in laws recipe so it as authentic as it gets. Saudi coffee which is also known as Arabic gulf coffee is made with green coffee beans which just mean they have not been roasted. You can grind them at home but I have mine ground fresh at the store. This is a pretty simple coffee to make just like all the rest. Saudi coffee is very traditional and you will be poured some right when you walk into any Saudis home as a welcome drink. Even when flying Saudi Air this is the first they give you to welcome you dullah and all.

2 cups water
1-1/2 tablespoons ground green coffee beans
1/2 teaspoon cardamom
1 teaspoon coffee mate creamer (powder)

1. In a small saucepan on high heat bring water to boil. Add coffee and allow to simmer for 5 minutes.

2. In a flask or coffee pot add cardamom and creamer. Place a strainer over pot and pour coffee into. Stir then serve in Arabic coffee cups.

Yields: 6 servings
