Moroccan coffee with spices

The Arabic coffee with spices is the essential hot drink of the Moroccan table, is eaten slowly while savoring all its aromas often accompanied by honey cakes or oriental pastries such as Zlabia, Baklawa, Balah el sham, Kalb ellouz, Basboussa and others honeyed delights.The recipe is super easy and quick, just grind the spices then mix them with the coffee of your choice, preferably arabica, in this recipe I use several spices: cloves, cardamom, ginger, pepper, cinnamon, cubeb, anise, mastic, fennel, nutmeg .

The particularity of this coffee is that there are sesame seeds and nuts which really gives depth to its aromas! I happen to use just a few! For the express version you can add the four spices with a little ginger to your drink!

Ingredients :

250g good quality ground coffee (preferably arabica)

10 cloves

10 black peppercorns

10 cardamom pods

10 cubeb seeds (tailed pepper)

1 teaspoon anise seeds

1 teaspoon of fennel seeds

1 teaspoon of cinnamon or 2 sticks

1 teaspoon powdered ginger

3 mastic seeds

1 teaspoon sesame seeds

2 walnut kernels

1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg

Preparation :

In a spice grinder or in your food processor, put all the spices, seeds and nuts then grind them very finely.

Sieve the powder obtained.

In a large bowl, put the ground coffee then add 2 good teaspoons of the spice mix then mix everything.

Put the coffee with spices in an airtight jar and reserve in a dry and cool place.

Make your coffee normally in the coffee machine or in an Italian coffee maker (count one teaspoon per cup of coffee depending on the taste if you want it long or espresso)

Enjoy the hot spiced coffee with cane sugar preferably for more aroma and why not a touch of milk.

Good realization and good tasting!
