You might be familiar with cardamom in baked goods or tea (think masala chai
), but have you ever had cardamom-infused coffee? This warm, fragrant beverage is especially popular in the Middle East, where cardamom
seeds are often ground with coffee beans. Others add whole cardamom pods or even pre-ground cardamom powder to the brew.
We recommend starting with one crushed cardamom pod per cup of coffee, and later adjusting the amount to your taste. You can add the spice to the coffee grounds in a drip machine, French press, or any method you use to make coffee.
Do you ever add cardamom or other spices to your coffee?
