Cafe Touba – Gambian spicy Coffee

When I was in The Gambia , West Africa , a few years ago so I drank often this coffee. It really is very good and tastes fantastic. However, I am not so clever as they pour between the cups as long jets of water . But it tastes great anyway.
It took a long time before I realized what it was that gave coffee its distinctive taste . And it was only recently I found out what it was that gave the flavor. It was selim pepper ! Guess if I was happy ? ! I LOVE coffee in all its forms and flavors. So now I do it often here at home. Thought I could share with you so you too can do it . Surprise your friends maybe a good cup of coffee uncommon .
Selim pepper , I have written about in the last post . Please read more about it there.
Dark Roasted Coffee is best to use , I think.
Take a whole Selim pepper and crush it. Put it in the coffee maker . Size up for two cups of coffee, and the amount of water you usually take two cups . Let it all be brewed as usual. And you have a spicy good coffee but a little different toutch .
Very good , I promise you this.

    I’m sure you’re right – I believe what you say. But two things prevent me: (1) Can’t but the selim pepper from Herbie’s Spice, and (2) I make coffee in an espresso machine. Sighh…
