    1. 1
      Heat 3 cups of the water, sugar and cinnamon in a medium saucepan, stirring frequently. Bring the mixture to a boil, making sure to stir till the sugar dissolves. Turn the heat down to medium and simmer, stirring frequently, for 20 minutes until the mixture is reduced by a quarter. The last 5 minutes, add the 1 tbls. cornstarch to the remaining 1 cup of water, mix completely, and add to the water/cinnamon mix. Cook for 5 more minutes. Add the ground coffee and stir until the mixture returns to a boil. Remove the pan from the heat, cover and allow to stand for at least five minutes.
    2. 2
      Strain the mixture using a fine sieve or a double layer of cheesecloth. Pour into mugs and serve while hot. Top with a few aniseeds if you like.

      My oh my.. what a wonderful treat this morning. Great Great flavors, came in hand took it to the local football field, in a thermos to watch some Pee-Wee football games here today, came in handy, cool, and damp. Definately a winner here that DS and I enjoyed. Had the coffee beans grinded at the Harry and David here in town. Made for PRMR tag.

      I was really a bit surprised at how very good this is. I used ready ground coffee Columbian coffee (it's what I had). The cornstarch doesn't really thicken it as such but seems to give it some extra body and whats not to love about brown sugar (Splenda Brown Sugar Blend) and cinnamon? I tried to float a star anise but it just sank lol! Thanks so much Sharon, what a great way to start my day!
