I have seen coffee prepared as in Qatar: It was mixed with cardamon, and had a light brown colour. The taste was excellent. I was told that the coffee beans were roasted only very little. Which kind of coffee beans are typically used for this coffee in Qatar, and can one get them in Europe?
I can read Arabic and also I prepare Arabian coffee as you want, so here comes the recipe
1- you have to get a very fine ground, light roasted plain coffee 1 tps / 80 ml water
2- ground cardamom 1/8 tps
4- 1:2 cloves / 80 ml
5- rose water 1/2 tps / 80 ml
A lot of Arabs drink it plain. Instead of sugar they eat dates along with it but you can add sugar if you wish; set your pot on a very very low heat, let it boil.
Turn the heat off and transfer it to another pot, wait until the grounds settle down the pot and pour, have fun.
By now I have found out the method to prepare Khaleeji coffee as it is called. People drink it without milk or sugar.
3 cups water
3 tablespoons ground coffee from Emirates
1 tablespoon ground cardamon
5 to 6 cloves
1 finger tip saffron threads
1 teaspoon rosewater
Boil water in frying pan. Add coffee. Cover and boil for 10 minutes. Add cardamon and cloves and boil for three more minutes. Remove from stove and let it cool for one minute without stirring. Put rose water and saffron into a thermos bottle. Add coffee via a sieve. Wait 5 minutes. Then the coffee will be ready to drink.
