Directions

  1. Crack open a few cardamom pods and toss them in a large pot, along with dark roast coffee, a cinnamon stick, milk, and some water. You can add the sugar now, or you can let your guests add their own.
  2. Simmer for ten minutes. Ladle the liquid as it bubbles and bobs, pouring from up high to aerate the coffee mixture. Do this about twenty times.
  3. Actually do it about a hundred and twelve times. Each time the mixture will get a little frothier. It’s a great thing to do when you have a problem to work out. Someone to think about. However many times you decide to do it, enjoy the process.
  4. Strain the milky mixture and transfer to a coffee pot.
  5. Pour into cups and serve with a cinnamon stick.
