Being the coffee lover that I am I was really excited to try this recipe. It works out so well. I used a dark roasted Sumatran coffee bean and made sure I brewed it a bit stronger than usual. With that and the addition of these wonderful spices (especially love the nutmeg!) and using 2% milk worked out to be a very enjoyable beverage. I love chai tea and love coffee more so this allows me the best of both hot beverage worlds! Thanks Annacia. Found and made during ZWT8.

If we had made this as specified, it would have been delicious! Unfortunately, since we are on serious diets, we used skim milk and that made it watery. :( I also think that we didn't make the coffee strong enough. Hubs (he's the coffee maker) says he's going to add 2 shots of espresso per serving next time. I do love the spice mix. I also think this would be a special Christmas morning drink. Thank you for posting!! Made for ZWT8.

I cut this recipe in half, but should have made the whole thing - lovely blend of spices and so easy to make. I made it even easier by using ground spices so no need to strain, afraid I used my regular coffee as didn't have mysore, but it was strong. Wonderful spicy flavor. Made for ZWT8,the Indian leg
