I am trying hawaij in my coffee today. Hawaij is a Yemeni spice mix containing cumin, black pepper, cardamon, turmeric and sometimes a range of other spices. I have been using it for a few years, mostly in eggs and on chicken. I just read a couple days ago that Yemenis put a couple pinches of it in their coffee.

The main effect is the bite of the pepper, which I like. It also seems to moderate the acidity of the coffee. The rest is a pleasant but quite subtle earthy modification of the flavor profile. Overall, I enjoy it and am making it a standard addition to my coffee from now on. And, of course, turmeric and black pepper together is the best way to get curcumins, which have antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties.

I get my hawaij from my favorite spice vendor, World Spice Merchants in Seattle. I buy it in whole form and grind what I need in a blade-type coffee grinder. You can order it pre-ground if you wish.

If you are ever in Seattle and have gone to see the Public ...

This is why God gave us sunsets. To say good bye to a troubled day. God gave us sunrises to welcome a new day filled with hope. Hugs to everyone. I am always thinking of you all 🌻
