Somehow I find the idea of saffron in my coffee just a touch decadent but very nice, :D. Sweeten as/if you like.

Delicious way to start the day! I've never tried saffron in coffee before, and I liked it a lot. As I'm the only one who drinks this, I halved the recipe. Like BK, I also added some sugar, which was perfect. Thanks for sharing!<br/>Made for Let's Go to Saudi Arabia / N*AM*E Forum June 2013

Wonderful coffee Annacia, quick and so easy to make. This is a beautiful exotic coffee that I enjoyed very much. Loved the cardamom and saffron combination. I did add sugar for a perfect cup of coffee. I enjoyed it so much that I drank the whole pot myself. Kudos my friend....
