Lebanese coffee a morning treat

Lebanese coffeeI am a coffee aficionado of sorts. I am not an expert by any means, but I love coffee in its many forms. This morning I am enjoying Lebanese coffee, which is made in an ibrik or tiny saucepan.

It is similar to Greek coffee, but with a hint of cardamom. The coffee is finely ground until is is powdery, so it doesn’t take much to make a strong brew. I like mine with a little sugar.

To make the coffee, put a heaping teaspoonful of coffee in the ibrik for each demitasse cup you are making. I add about half a teaspoon of organic sugar for each cup, but you will have to decide for yourself how much or how little to put in, if any at all.

Add water – a little more than enough for each cup into the ibrik. ┬áDO NOT STIR!

Heat on the burner until it is just about to boil over. It should have a foamy top. Pour into demitasse cups and serve. The foam should stay at the top of each cup.
