Arabic Coffee, the Saudi Way

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by Annacia

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
