Yemeni Coffee Cherry Tea

04.24.2014

Yemeni qishr (kishr, gishr) is a type of coffee made by steeping the coffee husks. It is light in flavor and resembles a tea more than regular coffee. Spices such as cinnamon, ginger, cardamom, and cloves are often added. Sugar may be added to taste.

Ingredients

1 Cup Coffee Husks (Qishr)
3 Cups of Water
2 tsp. grated ginger
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. caraway
sugar to taste (I used 1/4 c.)

How to make

1. Bring water to boil on the stove.
2. Add coffee husks, ginger, cinnamon, caraway and sugar.
3. Boil for approx. 10 mins until the coffee turn golden brown.
