Description: As soon as you stop drinking it, the government
takes away your citizenship and labels you an "Alien!".
It's great coffee, strong, and takes some getting use to. Identical
to coffee in neighboring countries. Sometimes referred too as Turkish
coffee. We will bring you the Gulf countries' version at future
Servings: 1 demitasse cup
1 demitasse cup of water
1 1/2 teaspoon sugar
1 heaping teaspoon finely powdered coffee (not instant)
Measure water and sugar in small saucepan or rakweh. Dissolve
the sugar in the water by bringing the mixture to a boil stirring
constantly. Remove from heat and stir in coffee. Return to heat
and bring slowly back to a boil.
When the coffee begins to rise up remove from heat. When foaming
recedes return to heat and bring back to a boil. Repeat this procedure
three times . The goal is to get maximum coffee flavor without over
boiling. There should be a thick sediment on the bottom and a brown
froth on the top.
Best way to Drink: Serve the coffee by pouring gradually into
each cup to evenly distribute the sediment. You should buy a Rakweh
(from a middle eastern shop) and adjust the recipe to serve more
