Try light Arabic coffee

Drinking coffee is a particular ritual in the UAE; locals have a cult of coffee. They drink it daily and in large quantities. The most popular and the most favorite among the local varieties is the light Arabic coffee, made of raw coffee beans. It is enriched with spices and traditional Arabic recipes.

They brew coffee in the Arab jezves; no coffee machines are allowed. A drink is served in the traditional Arab coffee pots and poured into small bowls. Often, a cup of coffee is accompanied with long talks. Dawn coffee flavored with cardamom is just the thing.

To fully experience the atmosphere, taste, aroma and the attitude to the drink, you should drop into one of the local coffee shops, where twilight prevails. Locals believe tha the semi-darkness reveals the true taste of coffee.
