Bosnian coffee

Coffee is more than a drink, real kafa is a ritual. It is served in a fildzan- a small handle-less traditional coffee cup. For the coffee of your dreams, come to Bosnia or Herzegovina to taste this bewitching heavenly drink referred to as ‘Bosnian coffee’. Frankly, even in a country where coffee is a national pastime, there are fewer and fewer places to have coffee prepared in the traditional way. Bosnian coffee is often replaced with flavoured instant coffee, espresso or filtered coffee -all of which by local standards oppose the theory of good coffee, because they don’t have the granules. The rule here is: the thicker the better. Good Bosnian coffee has its own tradition and method of preparation.Coffee is brewed in a ‘dzezva’ which is first warmed slightly.The ‘just not yet boiled water’ is removed from the heat just before the boiling point. A ‘fildzan’ of this hot water is set aside and the rest poured into the ground coffee bean filled dzezva. It is stirred and placed back onto the stove top. The coffee should boil until a rich layer of foam reaches the very top of the dzezva. Removing it from the heat, pour the water from the fildzan over it and set aside for a moment until grinds settle at the bottom.It is then served in a fildzan. Traditional coffee drinking entails sucking coffee through a sugar cube. Not a whole one but a chunk of the cube that is first dipped in the coffee to soften it upbefore sinkingyour teeth into the new brown and melting cube. Nowadays this ritual is mostlypracticed at home.There are however, a few kafanas around town clinging to this noble art. Old habits die hard in Bosnia and Herzegovina.
