5 Stars, a wonderful after-dinner dessert coffee, the cinnamon set this apart, although the cinnamon and cocoa flavors remind me of Mexican coffee. I couldn't distinguish the brandy as a separate taste, except it made the alcohol more potent. I used 6 ounces of water with a Dark Magic Decaf K-cup in my Keurig. Thanks for posting this Annacia, keep the coffee drinks coming! Made for This Round's On Me.
