This coffee is so good! Would be nice for a special celebration or maybe brunch. Added just the nutmeg to the coffee and enjoyed. Will be making this yummy coffee again! Made and reviewed for Culinary Quest 2015.

What a way to start the day!! Delicious coffee. We topped ours with both the grated chocolate and nutmeg. I'll make this again for a special treat on a weekend relaxing day. I would either skip the almond extract or sub with vanilla next time - just personal preference. Thank you ! Made for CQ 2 - Quebec Canada region.
