This might have been the worlds first and oldest flavored coffee. Wether it is or not, it's delicious and something to be sipped slowly and enjoyed.Time given is an estimate, stoves vary. Warning: This is authentic and it's very sweet and you might want to cut back on the sugar.
- 1⁄2 liter about 1 pint water
- 2 tablespoons ground coffee
- 3 tablespoons sugar
- 1⁄4 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1⁄4 teaspoon cardamom
- 1 teaspoon vanilla or 1 teaspoon vanilla sugar
- Mix all ingredients in a saucepan and heat until foam gathers on top.
- Do not pass through a filter.
- Stir it up before you serve it.
What a nice perk me up after a days work! Normally I drink my coffee black and this was just like having a piece of cake but instead of eating the cake, this time drinking it.
I love cardamom and cinnamon and the two together is such a good combination.
Thanks for posting.

What a pick me up! I used espresso coffee again, for this drink and found that vanilla sugar went well with everything else. I didn't find anything too overpowering, even though cardamom has a distinct flavour to it.
Yummy! I got hooked on Turkish coffee the first time I tasted it, which was many years ago in Jerusalem. Well, the scenery around here wasn't quite the same as there, but the taste took me back! This is delicious, and very very sweet, just like what I remember. I remember that this type of coffee is served in very small glasses -- the size of a demitasse -- and is sipped slowly after a meal. A real winner, Annacia! Thanks!
