When we would have people over or if we were at somebody’s house, inevitably the question would pop up “anybody care for white coffee?” White coffee is simply a beverage that is usually offered after a meal in lieu of regular coffee, for those people who do not care for the caffeine-laden Turkish coffee. It is made up of water and a bit of orange blossom water, with or without sweetener. My grandmother would always offer me some when I was young and complaining of a tummy ache, because it is supposed to facilitate digestion and soothe the nerves. It is poured in a demitasse cup, about one teaspoon per cup.
INGREDIENTS: Per one serving
water, about 2 ounces
orange blossom water, about 1 teaspoon (or less, to taste!)
sugar (optional), to taste
- Pour one teaspoon of orange blossom water per demitasse cup.
- Bring water to the boiling point. Add the sugar and stir to dissolve.
- Pour the water on the demitasse cup and serve.
