Lovely coffee, just the thing for my afternoon coffee treat on this chill almost Dec day. The spicing is excellent and warming along with the hot coffee it's self. I did heavy up on the cinnamon a bit :D
5 plus susie! So simple and yet divine in taste. My g/f is a coffee crazed woman and at our dinner I served this. She is one to go to the coffee store for coffee but loved this and thought I had too. LOL Not I, I told her and gave her your recipe to go home with. Excellent. I did sweeten mine with 1/2 and 1/2 and enjoyed the last dregs before bed after all clean up was done. Thank you for a keeper. Made for Aus/NZ 33 Swap
My favorite things about this are- it's EASY!! and also, how the amounts of milk and sugar to add are left up to choice. Sadly, I don't have a real coffee machine, so I used instant: I simmered the spices (double!!) in the water for a few minutes on the stove, then added some coffee granules and mik (about 1/4 cup per cup of water). I sweetened it with just a touch of agave nectar. Lovely basic, warm, comforting- what's not to like? Thanks for posting!
Made a small pot just for me - Holiday Coffee is the perfect name. One could make this for the aroma alone! Already have a second coffee pot on the counter for the holidays - and yes this is one of the hot beverages I will serve over Christmas. Didn't have a vanilla bean on hand but had a gifted bottle of real vanilla which made for a lovely vanilla taste. Thank you Susie for another of your recipes that has been added to my cookbook.
Nice way to wake up this morning! I enjoyed all the spice. Thanks Susie! Made as a pressie for the Australian swap-December!
I made this last night as an after dinner coffee and it was delicious! I made it just as stated. I will serve this over the holidays too! Thanks for sharing.
I doubled up the spices and used real vanilla extract ( since vanilla beans are out of our budget right now WAHHHH) Still this is an very tasty coffee and would make a wonderful dessert coffee. Made for Everyday is a Holiday Tag Dec 2008 Thanks for a great recipe susie
