However, the question remains…
What makes Israeli coffee more interesting to taste than the others?
Enjoying coffee is not just about tasting it. Your coffee experience won’t be complete without smelling how good the aroma of coffee is while it is being brewed in the morning. This brings the nostalgic feeling of coffee lovers whenever they experience it at the best Israeli food Sydney restaurants.

Some restaurants also offer their unique versions of Israeli coffee. One of them is called the “café hafuch,” or the “upside down coffee”. It is unique in terms of how it is being prepared and served. Unlike the usual ones wherein the coffee goes in first in the cup, the upside down coffee has the hot milk at the bottom and then mixed with hot coffee and espresso. To seal the deal, it will be topped with milk froth, nutmeg or cocoa powder.
What are the different ways of preparing traditional Israeli coffee?
There are two different ways on how experts prepare traditional Israeli coffee. These are called cooked and uncooked.
The cooked version is also known to people as “Kafe Turki” or “Kafe Shachor”. It is prepared by brewing the ground beans in a small coffee po called as finjan. Finjan is a special pot with a long handle that has an expanded bottom but a slim and narrow top.
On the other hand, mud coffee or “Kafe Botz” is made by just boiling the beans in water with water, sugar and some cardamon. Cardamon is important to this recipe as it brings out the menthol flavour and spice aroma that coffee lovers are looking for.
