Coffee & Dates

  • 500g Tunisian Deglet Nour Dates, pitted (Core Green)
  • Ethiopian Yirgacheffe Coffee (Core Green), enough to submerge the dates, add more coffee as they expand
  • Leila (Maltese Carob digestif) to taste
  • Cardamom seeds (not powder) to taste

Make strong espresso-style coffee. Mix coffee with cardamom and Leila. Pour over the dates in coffee until they are completely submerged. Steep for 1-3 days. Add more coffee to keep the dates submerged at all times. Serve on their own, or fill with white tahini.
