Coffee boiled in a pot (granny TM)

Another recipe that makes me remember my childhood… Sunday mornings in Ceausescu’s time, my granny waking up at 7 and making coffee boiled in a pot, the smell taking over the entire home >D<. I remember her ritual of making the coffee, with the pot, the stirring and the sugar and the cooling down before you pour it in the cups…Those wonderful moments will stay in my heart forever. Here is her recipe:

Ingredients: water (100 or 200 ml), cardamon/hell (1 pod), sugar (1 or 2 teaspoons), ground coffee (1.5 or 3 teaspoons)

Yield: 2 servings.

Time: 10 – 15 min.


I boil the water (low heat) in a special coffee pot. I add the sugar. I stir.
