Sand boiled coffee

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.
