      Wow was this good Caroline. I really enjoyed all the flavors in this tasty coffee. I made the coffee in my drip machine. It worked great. Loved the addition of the vanilla, chocolate and spices with the strong coffee and whipped cream. Thanks for sharing this tasty treat.

      This is delicious! I also made it in my drip machine and it comes out wonderful. I added a dash of milk into my cup, instead of the whipped cream. I also forgot the vanilla, though next time i'll add it in

      Nice and rich with a good balance of flavors. I made a half-batch in a 4 cup drip pot and it came out very nice with no awkwardness about straining out the grounds.
