For many centuries, drinking strong unfiltered coffee has been part of the daily life and culture in much of the Balkans, the Mediterranean and much of the Middle East. And, since 1976, coffee lovers in the Balkans have come to know and love the rich flavor and bold aroma of C Kafa. Made with finely ground roasted coffee beans, C Kafa is unlike American filtered drip coffee or Italian Espresso. To make C Kafa, you’ll need a small narrow necked coffee pot called a “Briki,” “Cezve” or “Ibrik.” The preparation involves gently boiling the coffee with cold water – adding sugar and ground cardamom or cardamom pods, if wanted – until it comes to a foam. The foam is an essential part of this special brew, as are the coffee grinds that should sink the bottom of the demitasse-sized cup before drinking. Never stir before drinking and never add milk. Wait a couple of minutes and then savor our wonderful roast with family and friends.
