Moroccan Spice Coffee / Ramadan 2022


 Arabic coffee with spices is the essential hot drink of the Ramadan table, is tasted slowly while savoring all its aromas often accompanied by honey cakes or oriental pastry we have a wide choice between Zlabia, Baklawa, Balah el sham, Kalb ellouz, Basboussa, and other honeyed delights. I am a big coffee lover and my husband is even more, with the approach of the Holy Month of Ramadan I prepare my spice coffee, the recipe is super easy and fast just grind the spices and then mix them with the coffee of your choice arabica preferably, in this recipe I use several spices (cloves,  cardamom, ginger, pepper, cinnamon, cubeb, anise, putty, fennel, nutmeg) and the particularity of this coffee is that there are sesame seeds and nuts that really give depth to its aromas! Sometimes I use just a few! For the express version, you can add the four spices with a little ginger to your drink!
