Coffee rice came to popularity during the World War II. I remember my mother used to stock toasted rice in replacement of regular coffee. Well, coffee rice has its benefits. First, it contains no caffeine – good for people who are avoiding caffeine for some health reasons. Second, it’s all natural.
How to make rice coffee.
Choose good quality rice grain, not steamed rice. Just like real coffee beans, high quality grain taste good.
Place rice in a frying pan. Toast it over low heat until brown. Brown not Black, else, coffee will taste like charcoal. Coffee roaster and popcorn popper can also be used for this purpose.
Boil water. Add coffee rice. Let stand for few minutes and serve. Coffee to water ratio depends on your preference.
Enjoy your hot coffee rice!
