Arabic coffee represents about 60-70% of the coffee industry in the world. It is made from coffee beans roasted either lightly or heavily from 165 to 210 °C and cardamom, and is a traditional beverage in Arab culture.
This coffee is defined by the method of preparation and flavors, rather than the type of beans. Arabic coffee is boiled coffee that is not filtered, made black. Sugar is not typically added, but if so, it can be added during preparation or when serving.
Most countries throughout have developed unique methods for brewing and preparing coffee to make it come out better.
