Normandy Coffee

READY IN: 17mins
Recipe by twissis

From *The World Encyclopedia of Coffee* -- Per the intro, "Normandy is known for its apple orchards & gives its name to many dishes made w/apple juice or apple sauce. This recipe blends the flavour of apples w/spices for a delicious & tangy coffee drink." This is non-alcoholic as written, but is easily converted to a warming coffee toddy as mentioned in a note after the prep. *Enjoy* !

I have to agree with Jen and Mikekey. I started with fresh made espresso and it still got lost in the taste of the apple and strong orange. That said, it did improve as I slowly sipped on this kick back Sunday morning. The spice is lovely and don't be shy with the cinnamon. I really think that the very best way to enjoy this would be to make it well before you want to serve it and then reheat or enjoy it over ice.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Bring all ingredients to a boil over mod heat. Reduce heat & simmer for 10 minutes.
  2. Strain into a serving jug or pot & pour into cappuccino style cups, adding a cinnamon stick to ea as desired.
  3. NOTE #1: The recipe did not say otherwise & my assumption is that unsweetened apple juice is preferred, but sweetened can be used at your option.
  4. NOTE #2: For the alcoholic version, replace 1/4 of the apple juice w/Calvados, added when the heat is reduced to simmer in Step 1 (DO NOT allow the Calvados to boil).
