Though coffee is a major export from Mocha in the Republic of Yemen, the locals can rarely afford it. They generally use the ground coffee husks and flavour it with ground ginger. As you are unlikely to have access to ground coffee husks, the recipe given uses coffee and ground ginger for a delightfully different brew.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
1 1/2 tablespoons ground coffee
1 1/2 tablespoons sugar
2 teaspoons ground ginger

Method

  1. Pour 250 ml cold water into a long-handled coffee pot. Add the coffee, sugar and ginger and stir well to combine. Place over medium heat and bring to the boil.
  2. Remove from the heat until the bubbling subsides, then return to the boil. Do this three times in all.
  3. Pour into Arabic coffee or demitasse cups and serve.
