    Sweet and Yummy. This is actually just an exotic spice infusion, and though called a coffee, there is no coffee in it. From The Complete Middle East Cookbook, Gulf States section, by Tess Mallos.

      Excellent comforting!! I made 1/4 of the recipe for just myself. I used 1 teaspoon sugar, just a pinch not even a 1/4 teaspoon of saffron, 1 cardamom clove 3/4 cup water. Simmered for 20-30 minutes. I served in an espresso cup making for 2 refills. Thanks for the soothing drink.

      Very interesting drink,like no other drink I ever had. More like a tea to me. I used less saffron,I have a very strong Iranian saffron and three teaspoons are enough to cook for a whole wedding! Thanks for sharing.

      This was an interesting coffee. No caffine. It did have a strong saffron taste and a very subtle cardamon flavor. I enjoyed this sweet treat. Thank you for sharing your recipe UmmBanit. Made for Comfort Cafe SnowQueen Round 01/10 :)
