When we were in Jakarta in May, this was the beverage of choice for me, ginger coffee. It reminded me of embah (my granddad). It’s not to everyone’s taste but I just love the ginger taste with coffee.
So, last night I grabbed about 7cm of ginger, peeled it, bruised it, boiled it in three cups of water for about 15 minutes. Let it cool down. When I woke up at 3am to have my morning meal before I start my fast, I made myself a cup of kopi jahe. One spoon of instant coffee, half a cup of boiling water, quarter cup of ginger water, 1tsp sugar and milk.
Now, all I need to remember is to get evaporated milk as it taste nicer with evaporated milk
