Qahwa Arabeya-Arabic Coffee

Qahwa Arabeya, the Arabic coffee is a symbol of hospitality, this coffee is never prepared with milk or sugar and its usually served with dates, fruits or any other sweets, the ritual of serving coffee in Arabic countries is sign of welcoming their guests..This coffee is served as black coffee prepared  with coarsely grounded cardamom, saffron and rose water with coffee powder..It has a special coffee pot called dallah and the coffee cups are small but with no handle. The portions are very small, covering the bottom of the cup. It is served in houses and in good restaurants,also offered at most social events like weddings and funerals...I loved this perfumed black coffee and enjoyed with dates.Sending to Flavors of Cuisines - Middle Eastern guest hosted by Asiya Akka, event by Julie..

I'm not a coffee drinker, but love the idea of rose water and saffron being included.

I am not much of a coffee person. I deviate towards tea. But this coffee looks divine with all the additions -- saffron, rose water and cardamom that makes me want it.
