Recipe by Um Safia
A very different kind of coffee to what many of us are used to! Qishr is a traditional spiced coffee drunk in Yemen. Drink in small coffee cups such as espresso cups or as we call them in Arabic ' Finjaan'. Adjust the sugat to taste but in Yemen it is drunk SWEET!

I made one large cup using Corta's Coffee and a 1/2 tsp of ginger which produced the perfect strength for my taste. I love Arabic coffee and wish I had a beautiful Arabic coffee set. Be that as it may, my trusty kitchen pot did the job if somewhat less elegantly. I think what I like most about it is that it really made for just sitting and sipping while chatting with friends. I suppose that one could gulp it down but then you would lose soft pleasure and nuance of slowly savoring each sip.
