5 star coffee.<br/><br/>Similar to how I make my spiced coffee.... cinnamon, clove, and allspice form the base of it.<br/><br/>People, you HAVE to make this in a saucepan and simmer the spices to really get them infused with the water. I wouldn't say its a waste to use a coffee maker but you're not getting even half the flavor intended. Especially if you're using whole spices as intended, rather than ground. <br/><br/>If you liked it from the coffee maker, imagine it being 20 times as good simmered in a saucepan.<br/><br/>It all started in Mexico for me after trying cafe de olla. I began experimenting with sugar and spices mixed in while the coffee was brewing. Obviously my first attempts were adding to the filter in the coffee maker, but once i simmered in a saucepan, it was like night and day. I never make spiced coffees in the coffee maker anymore.

A great morning coffee for me. I just put the cinnamon spice mix in the basket of my 1 serving coffee maker, topped them with my favorite coffee and turned it on. I placed a cinnamon stick in the waiting cup where it remained during my morning coffee enjoyment. I didn't use any whipped cream and sweetened with a bit of Splenda. Thanks for sharing Sue.

I really enjoyed this lovely coffee. I fused your two variations together and made, orange rind, cinnamon, allspice and clove coffee. I really enjoyed these flavors and spices together. I love the deep taste that the brown sugar lends to the coffee, garnished with whipped cream and cinnamon for a perfect cup of coffee. Thank you for sharing littleturtle.

ComfortCafe2009 tag. Recipe of the Day. I make something very similar and decided this morning I would try yours. (I had the recipe taped to the coffee maker, LOL ) I chose to make the Cinnamon flavor. I really enjoyed this. I thought the cloves were a bit strong so the 2nd cup had only 1 clove and this is more to my preference. I like to taste coffee first then the subtle flavors second. I will make this again. Actually I am thinking of making this as a pot and putting the cloves and the cinnamon in the filter along with the coffee and set to brew. If I can figure how to do that with orange rinds I will try that as well. Thank you.

I made a combination of both flavors to my liking. I used my coffee pot to make everything putting the cinnamon stick, orange, lemon, and 1 clove into the basket. It was very good and smelled out of this world. Made and Reviewed as the recipe of the day in the Comfort Cafe - Thanks! :)

I made the cinnamon spiced coffee, using some coffee I had just brewed. I simmered it for 5 minutes, and enjoyed it on a lazy Saturday morning. Made for Comfort Cafe Game.

I made the Citrus Clove Spiced Coffee. It was a pleasant morning beverage to start off such a cold and snowy day. I used only 3 whole cloves (as they have a way of overpowering a recipe), and I think that was just about right. And although I usually take my cofee black, I thought this particualr beverage was much better with both sugar and cream. It seemed to help meld all the flavors together anyway, which produced a delightfully aromatic and flavorful coffee drink.

I made this in the microwave oven with leftover coffee on medium setting for 4 minutes. I used 2 slices each lemon and orange zest with 4 cloves in 1 cup of coffee. I found this to be refreshing and not overpowering. I cut back on the cloves because I do find they can take over in flavor. Thanks

This was the first time I'd ever had sweetened, spiced coffee--it was great! I can see this would be a wonderful n/a dessert coffee, especially with a spice cake or something similar. Thanks so much for posting, littleturtle! Made for Comfort Cafe game.
