I discovered this coffee this morning,when I felt that I need something different from my everyday routine. No amount specified for the coffee and water, use the same amount you would for your filtered coffee. I drink mine without sugar and with some milk.Put some dried orange peel into the coffee pot and you've got a cinnamon orange coffee. In the coffee filter didn't work out, had no orange flavor.
- Place coffee and cinnamon stick in the filter.On the coffee machine.
- Serve with whatever you would normally.
I made this in a French Press pot. Just dropped the cinnamon stick in with the grounds and filled with boiling water, and let steep for 5 minutes. Worked great and tasted great. I used a little vanilla-flavored Torani's to sweeten and added some milk. Would be good with a couple of whole cloves added, also!
I like this recipe because it showed me something new - I'd not heard of putting spices into the coffee maker (either with the grounds or in the pot), so I was curious to give it a go. My first attempt (putting 6 scoops of freshly ground coffee beans and 1 cinnamon stick into the filter) resulted in (not surprisingly) very little cinnamon coming out in the finished product. So, undaunted, I decided to try again, after having asked the chef and the community for some tips. Using only 2 scoops of grounds in the filter, and one cinnamon stick in the pot, I was rather closer, but still not where I thought it should be. So I made another 2 scoops of coffee, but this time allowed the cinnamon a bit more time to steep. The resulting brew was very good indeed. The cinnamon is noticeable in the nose and on the palate, making an intriguing companion for the usual medium roast of the coffee. Recommended both for ease of the recipe and the fact that it expanded my culinary horizons.
I drink my coffee black, and this gave it an interesting depth of flavor. The cinnamon is noticeable but not overpowering. We really enjoyed the subtle difference it made. Thanks for posting! Made for Zaar Stars Tag.
