“The term Kahwah Saadah means "black coffee", which means no sugar added. This coffee is "only" made from light roast coffee beans and has to be coarsely grounded and is not the same as Turkish coffee, this is has a stronger cardamom flavor, but lighter texture.I believe this coffee originated from Saudi Arabia. This coffee is usually made for special occasions such as Eid or funerals. This is usually placed in carafes to keep hot all day and served in specific cups with no handles.Even though this coffee is lighter in texture it is considered to be even stronger than Turkish coffee so it is served in small portions. I usually add sugar to my cup, just because I dont like black coffee.”

Directions

  1. Place the cardamom pods in a mortar and pestle and hit several times to open pods.
  2. Place pods in a medium pot over a medium heat and let the pods "roast" for approximately 1 minute. This will release the flavor and aroma.
  3. Then add water and coffee to the pot and let boil for about 7-10 minutes.
  4. Strain the coffee and place in a carafe to keep hot.
  5. Enjoy!
