Instructions for making saffron coffee

  1. Start by grinding your coffee beans to a medium-coarse consistency if you have whole beans. Alternatively, you can use pre-ground coffee.
  2. In a small saucepan, bring the water to a boil. Add the saffron threads to the boiling water and let them steep for about 5 minutes. This will allow the saffron to release its flavor and color.
  3. After the saffron has steeped, add the ground coffee to the saucepan. Stir it gently to ensure the coffee is fully submerged in the water.
  4. Reduce the heat to low and let the coffee steep for about 4-5 minutes. This will allow the flavors to meld together and the coffee to brew.
  5. After the steeping time, remove the saucepan from the heat and let it sit for a minute to allow the coffee grounds to settle at the bottom.
  6. Carefully pour the coffee into your cup, ensuring you leave behind the coffee grounds at the bottom of the saucepan. You can use a fine-mesh strainer or a coffee filter to strain out any remaining grounds if necessary.
  7. If desired, you can sweeten your saffron coffee with sugar or your preferred sweetener. Stir well to combine.
  8. Serve your saffron coffee hot and enjoy the unique and aromatic flavors.
