  • 1 cup dark roast whole coffee beans
  • 10-12 tsp cardamom pods
  • sugar optional


  • To prepare cardamom coffee, you will first have to remove the fragrant cardamom seeds from the cardamom pods. It is best to use an old-fashioned mortar and pestle. Crush the pods to pop them open and remove the seeds. 
  • Grind the coffee beans and the cardamom seeds together to a very fine powder. Your cardamom coffee powder is ready to use. You can store it in an airtight container for several weeks. 
  • To make a cup of cardamom coffee, you will need to boil just a little over 1 cup of water in a small saucepan. Let it come to a rolling boil. 
  • Add 2 tbsp of the coffee-cardamom powder and sugar to taste. Let it simmer till the coffee powder begins to sink. It will take 2-3 minutes. 
  • Remove from heat and let it sit for a minute. 
  • Pour into small cups with care, leaving most of the coffee grounds in the pan. Sip your cardamom coffee and enjoy it!
