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
I found this delicious recipe in the ZWT8 posted recipes and I had to try this coffee for my DD and myself as Annacia's ones are really top!
I used Asian coffe (self imported) which I preared sieving this through a special methal filter with very small holes. We love Asian coffe and the Indian one is one of my favorites.
It's summer now and drinking this spiced coffee in the garden was a bit like going back to India!
Thanks a lor Annacia for posting this!
Love this spicey coffee ~ the cardamom really shines through. Made for myself while working around the house this morning. I think DH would really enjoy this too. I used my usual French Market coffee with chicory, which is ALWAYS strong, and ground spices since I was only making 1 cup. Thanks Annacia ~ lovely cuppa! Made for COMFORT CAFE ~ SNOWQUEEN'S ROUND, January 2010!
Wonderfully spicy coffee. I never drink coffee with milk but it is very nice in this recipe Made for TYM tag
This was a lovely morning drink! I used decaf coffee and scaled the recipe down for 2. Thanks Annacia!
This smells so wonderful. We drink our coffee black however this Splenda / sugar is a must in this recipe as it helps bring out the flavor of the spice and ties everything together very nicely. This turns your every day coffee into a very special fall treat. Thanks for the post.
Anna this is a wonderful coffee, simply wonderful. I loved the spices in this coffee, they were perfectly balanced, the ratio of deep dark robust coffee and lovely warming spices was perfect. What a lovely comforting drink, I will make this again and again. I should share that I used Starbucks Extra Bold French Roast, which worked great in this recipe. Thanks for sharing another winner.
Very tasty! Love the flavor of the cardamom in this. I don't know where to find mysore coffee, so used a dark roast made in my French press pot.
