Autumn Delight Coffee

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by Annacia

As the leaves change to glorious rust and pumpkin and ruby reds in regions blessed with a "true autumn", the desire for something spicy to drink while watching the theatre of the changing leaves is definitely on order. This drink makes the grade, and then some.
