Referred to as Kopi Jahe (Koh-pee-Jay-hee) in Indonesian, this iced coffee has a lovely combination of sweetness and spice from ginger, coconut, and cardamom. Kopi Jahe has been a popular beverage on the summer menu at Bastyr University, it is a unique drink that uplifts a traditional coffee.

The original recipe which calls for boiling and then cooling coffee, sugar, ginger, and cardamon together comes from my mother who was born in Bandung Indonesian on the Island of Java. I’ve given the recipe a modern twist using Olympia Coffee Cold Brew, The Perfect Purée Sweet Ginger, and The Perfect Purée Coconut Puree. Alternatively, you can use espresso or your favorite brewed coffee. However, I like the way this particular cold brew compliments the ginger and cardamom without overpowering these flavors.
