Omani Coffee

Recipe by Sharon123
READY IN: 13mins
YIELD: 4 cups




  • Preparing the Beans: Roast the ground beans in a thick skillet or pan over medium to medium-high heat, stirring constantly, until they are a dark brown all over.
  • Making the coffee:
  • To boiling water, add the cardamom and ground coffee. Bring to boil again and then reduce the heat. Continue boiling for 3-4 minutes.
  • Remove from the stove and cover the pot. Allow to sit for another 3-4 minutes.
  • Put the whole cloves in the coffee thermos.
  • Strain the hot coffee into the coffee thermos. Allow to sit for ten minutes before serving. Avoid shaking the thermos, as some coffee grains and the cloves will settle to the bottom and you do not want to pour these grains into the coffee cups.
  • Sweeten to taste.
  • For the full experience, sit on the floor, serve in small cups and serve with dates which help offset the bitter taste.
