Spiced Moroccan Coffee Recipe

December is going to be a very busy month. I have signed up for 4 weeks of blogging marathon and over zealously signed up for bakeathon as well!

I have to cook and bake like crazy to get the posts up on time. Its going to be hectic for sure but my kiddos are looking forward to some delicious bakes and other dishes that I planned out for both these events.

Cooking and posting the same day looks nerve wracking but I can never stay away from these events!

So here I am with a Spiced Moroccan Coffee Recipe . The theme for this week  is Moroccan dishes and since I have a time constraint on cooking, clicking and posting, I chose this simple beverage for the day.

I have also posted a few other  recipes from Morocco . Do check them out.

There is also another another version of Moroccan coffee posted here where instant coffee powder and spice powders are used. Click on the link to know the method..

But this version makes a nice pot of brewed spiced black coffee. I have used my small percolator. You can also brew the same in the regular filter / french press.

The whole spices are ground and added to coffee powder / coffee grounds and then brewed. The spices can be adjusted to suit ones taste.

I have used minimal amount of the spices as I did not want to overpower the flavor. Also I am not a huge fan of cinnamon so added just a small piece.

Use a sweetener of your choice. I have added sugar. Also creamer  / milk can be added. I had it as such without adding either of these.

  1. I love Moroccan Cuisine though I have never tried coffee , with spices it must be giving it an awesome flavor .
    Bakeathon + BM = hard work ! And I am also giving you company this time .

  2. PJ, that coffee looks so inviting..and I am loving how much efforts you are putting in to get these done on time..and kids must be super thrilled with all these bakes and other dishes!

  3. Wow…that looks like a coffee version of masala chai. Must have been so aromatic! Hats off to you to do 4 week’s of BM and bakeathon. All th best!

  4. I am a filter coffee girl all the way and not brave enough to experiment with spices in coffee. To anyone that’s willing to experiment, though, I am sure this will be a welcome change to the regular coffee.

  5. Wow! This is definitely something which my husband will love. I make cardamom + cinnamon flavored coffee for him but this sounds even better. Shall ask him if he would like to try it !
