REVIEW: 5 star recipe rating
At the price of saffron, for 1/4 teaspoon I had to omit it. Added a pinch of turmeric instead since I often see that as a substitute. Really enjoyed the cardamom flavor.

REVIEW: 4 star recipe rating
Having lived in Saudi Arabia several years ago and drunk much cardamon (Arabic) coffee, your recipe is pretty good! All it lacks is a being made in a brass Gawa pot and brewed over a fire in the desert!
