Qawah – Arabic Coffee RecipeQATAR USA YEARS OF CULTURE
What is Qawah?
Qawah is a traditional Arabic coffee recipe, often made from green coffee beans and cardamom. Traditionally, it is roasted, ground, brewed, and served in front of guests.
Sugar is not typically added, but if so, it can be added during preparation or when serving. It is served in a small delicate cup without handles, called finjān. Sometimes, the coffee is moved to a larger and more beautiful pour pitcher to serve in front of the guests, called the dallah.
The Dallah (Coffee Pot)
A dallah is a traditional Arabic coffee pot that has been used for centuries to brew and serve Qawah. It is commonly used in the coffee tradition of the Arabian peninsula and of the Bedouins, using it as a sign of hospitality, generosity and wealth.
In much of the Middle East, it is still connected to socializing with friends, family and business partners, so it is typically present in the main rites of passage, such as births, marriages and funerals and some business meetings.
