Ginger coffee hails from Yemen and rivals any flavored coffee that comes from the coffee shops. It is sweetened with sugar and ground ginger is added. I have added other spices that I enjoy.

Annacia does it again, another wonderful coffee full of flavor and beautiful exotic spices. This was lovely, spicy and perfect. I did add sugar, but left the coffee black. This made a flavorful thick coffee that I enjoyed very much. Thank you for sharing alternative methods for brewing coffee and for sharing another winner.

Made as written including the thrice boil-although I always add cream to my coffee-don't like it black. Filtered coffee is still my favorite method but it's interesting to prepare coffee in the
traditional Arabic style. Reviewed for NA*ME Tag/Summer.
