The term Kahwah Saadah means "black
coffee", which means no sugar added. This coffee is "only" made from light roast coffee beans and has to be corsely grounded
and is not the same as Turkish coffee, this is has a stronger cardomom flavor, but lighter texture. This coffee is usually
made for special occasions such as Eid or funerals. This is usually placed in carafes to keep hot all day and served in specific
cups with no handles.Even though this coffee is lighter in texture it is considered to be even stronger than Turkish coffee
so it is served in small portions. I usually add sugar to my cup, just because I dont like black coffee.
