Coffee boiled on sand. The true way of preparing coffee!
Coffee is made in many different ways, but boiled on sand is and will be the best method for
getting a truly exquisite taste.
How it’s made?
We heat around 2-3 kilograms of sand in a “filingean” (a big copper bowl, the size of a basin) to
make a hot bed of sand; In it we put the copper coffee pot that holds maximum 2 coffees; When
the water is close to boiling, we add a pinch of sugar and plenty of coffee, until the spoon can
stand up straight; When it shows signs of boiling we start moving the coffee pot around in the
sand. The coffee needs to be tasted to determine when it’s ready.
