Kopi Jahe

Indonesians love Kopi Jahe (Ginger Coffee). The warm, invigorating ginger and cinnamon combined with coffee and palm sugar is very stimulating and a good pick me up in the morning. You can have it hot or cold; with milk or without. The palm sugar is essential for this recipe – it gives a robust flavour to the coffee.
