    Coffee.

    Recently I've taken an interest in coffee (not cheating on tea, just, um, exploring options). So: how do you take your coffee? does anyone roast their own beans? are there any non-standard ingredients that you could suggest adding?

        I've had roasted coffee with a pinch of nutmeg. Tastes great

          ^ The smell of nutmeg ordinarily is not very appealing to me but I'll defo try it, its intensity seems like it would work well with the richness of the coffee beans. Thank you.

          KKF, do you make doodh patti? Try a coffee version and I think you'll enjoy it - don't worry about chai bewafi, you're allowed four hot beverages.

          muslimah118, mmmhh chocolate, I'm so stupid for not thinking of that! Thank you.

            I am very simplistic when it comes to coffee and even tea. No spices, nutmeg, caramel, cinnamon, syrup, cardamom, ginger or other stuff for me.

            Coffee is black with sugar
            Tea with just sugar and cream

              ^ I'm usually the same, only no sugar, and milk instead of cream in the tea.
              I have inherited a coffee roaster (and a pizza oven, but that's a thread for another day) and thought I'd play around a little with the thing.

                Coffee roaster sounds cool. I wonder if it's easy to get hold of fresh unroasted coffee beans. Also wondering if the roaster can be used to roast chanay or maka'ee ke daanay

                  It hasn't been difficult to get a hold of the unroasted beans. So far have been ordering them online, but apparently there is a place in the city which does them too.
                  The roaster is pretty cool - its not something I would have considered paying for, but I can't deny the difference in taste.
                  I haven't tried the daanay, pretty sure it'll work, it's just hot air. I'll try. If you never hear from me again I was killed by popcorn.

                        I've gotten into it too but very simple and narrow--black, iced, occasionally a splenda and skim milk. boring but everything else is loaded with calories and sugar. (I wanna be able to eat my calories and sugar..not drink it)
                        The grass ain't always greener on the other side, it's green where you water it.

                          My coffee is always made with special arrangement. I whisk the coffee to get the froth and then pour milk cum water mixture in it. Sprinkle it with cocoa powder or instant coffe flavours available like white chocolate mocha and chocolate mocha. Also I have capsule machine of coffee so also get maximum benefit from that. Sometimes do add cream but not very much. Also I am shortly going to try the hazelnut coffee. Would share how well it went

                            why we add: because we like the flavor. its passed on from the older generation of our family to us.

                            how we add it: just whisk the egg yolks, and add it to the coffee mixture. let it boil for 3,4 min and thats it.

                              ^That's interesting. Does the yolk blend smoothly, no snotty strands?

                              Sara, calories? lalalalala*I can't hear you*lalalala.
                              You could try adding a pinch of cinnamon or pumpkin spice if you wanted to try a different taste. So far though I haven't seen anything that can replace a simple black coffee in terms of taste,efficiency, durability. The other concoctions might be fun for a one off here or there but they're not a daily drink. So I would say you're not missing anything.

                              AFayiz, did you like the hazelnut coffee?
