Prepare a pot of coffee at a good European strength.
In the ground coffee, add 2 or 3 freshly ground cardamom pods.
Sweeten while hot, then cool quickly.
Serve in highball glass over ice, with cream.
To get the layered effect, place a spoon atop the coffee and pour the milk carefully into the spoon so that it floats on the top of the coffee.
Serve: Highball glass
