Recipe: Arabian Cardamon Coffee - Qahwah

3 tablespoons un-roasted coffee
4 1/2 cups water
1 1/2 teaspoon pulverized cardamom seeds

Place coffee in a heavy frying pan, then roast over high heat, stirring constantly until it just begins to brown. Remove and allow to cool, then coarsely grind.

Place water in a coffee pot, then bring to boil. Add coffee, then brew over medium heat for 10 minutes. Pour through a strainer into an ibriq (serving coffee pot) or another ordinary coffee pot. Add cardamom, then bring to boil. Brew for 5 minutes, then pour into tiny Arab coffee cups and serve.
