2 variations on spiced coffee: one flavored with cinnamon, cloves, and allspice and the other with orange, lemon, and cloves. You may also want to experiment with your own amounts and combination of spices.

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.
