People in Israel love kosher coffee. It is part of their daily routine. They often start their days with making a nice cup of hot coffee to welcome the day. And if you’re asking Israeli people if they drink their coffee throughout the day too, then they’ll say yes as well. It’s a real big part of the Israeli culture to have kosher coffee. But that’s not just like regular coffee.
What is Jewish coffee?
For Israeli people, coffee is not a thing that’s just done in multiple ways. There are specific guidelines how to prepare a nice hot cup of Jewish coffee. The Turkish Coffee is the most popular Israeli coffee, so let’s take look at how that should be done. As an Israeli born guy, Nati really likes to explain these cultural habits. He’s living in the Netherlands for six years now, but still has a tremendous amount of love for his birth country. He states that there are two ways to make a Jewish coffee in Israel. The first one is the most popular, the so called ‘mud coffee’. To make this it is pretty simple but still requires a specific recipe and routine. The ‘mud coffee’ is made in a small glass. About one or two tablespoons of kosher coffee should be put into the glass. You could add a pinch of sugar if you’d prefer to. After that, you’ll need to pour boiling hot water (just at boiling point) to the glass. Then stir very well and let the mixture rest for a couple of minutes. This will make the coffee grounds settle at the bottom of the glass. This is why it’s called mud coffee. The grounds will leave a bit of a sandy taste if the coffee is almost done. In Israeli, this is a very popular way of drinking kosher coffee.

Why is coffee kosher?
When something is kosher it means that it’s safe to consume according to the rules of the Torah. In the Kashrut, there is specified which product is kosher and which one is terefah (not permitted to eat). If in a product is any ingredient that comes from a terefah (non kosher) product, then it is not allowed to be consumed. Of course coffee is made from coffee beans, a 100% natural product that is totally kosher to consume. And that’s why Israeli coffee is kosher.
