Ginger Coffee

Ginger coffee hails from Yemen and rivals any flavored coffee that comes from the coffee shops. It is sweetened with sugar and ground ginger is added.

Cook Time: 5 minutes

Total Time: 5 minutes


  • 1 cup water
  • 6 teaspoons extra finely ground coffee
  • 4 teaspoons sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons ground ginger


In an ibrik or small saucepan combine all ingredients. Bring to a boil and remove from heat. Once the coffee stops bubbling, place back onto stovetop and allow to come to a boil. Remove from heat and repeat.

Serve in demitasse cups. Be sure to allow the coffee to sit for a minute before serving to allow the grinds to fall to the bottom.

If it has too much of a ginger taste, you can add 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon or a cardamom pod during cooking.
