    Um Safia's Note:

    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.

      This was so good! I never had ginger in my coffee before, but this was really awesome! I did find the coffee a little too sweet, but it was tempered by the ginger, so I liked that too.

      Thank you for sharing this lovely recipe Um Safia. I really enjoyed this spicy, spicy coffee. It was so delicious, thick, sweet and spicy. Ginger is one of my favorite flavors, needless to say, I was in flavor heaven. Made exactly as written, wouldn't change a thing. I also made it in my trusty little iron pot, worked well. Thanks for sharing a new favorite. Made for NA/ME - December 12
