I have always loved the thick and dark Arabic coffee since I first tasted it years ago. Unfortunately the Saudi coffee (which I love just as much) is what is served throughout Saudi so when I want this type I have to make it myself. I have been using this same simple recipe for years. Coffee has such a special place in the Gulf; it’s a big part of the heritage after all. Throughout Saudi on Ramadan you will see lighted dullah decorations, dullahs are all over Emirati coins and also used widely when speaking on the Gulf. You can check out my Saudi Coffee post on the etiquette of serving Arabic coffee. Adding rose water and saffron is not an everyday habit with Arabic coffee. It’s reserved for special events like weddings or guest but it’s nice to have every once in a while.
I just recently was gifted this beautiful dullah and matching fanajeens aren’t they lovely? They are from an amazing shop here in Riyadh named Aura. For those that live here they have a shop in Panorama Mall. You can check out their Facebook page here to see the entire awesome decor they have. I am in love with every single thing they have; it’s all so luxurious, modern yet traditional
