I made this as written and mixed it all together and then refrigerated it overnight. The next day I poured it over ice for a very refreshing drink. The spices are perfect and I like the little bit of bite from the red pepper. Made for ZWT 7.
What a treat Anna, this was one lovely coffee. It was dark and had such depth. Loved the spice combination, it worked perfectly and complimented the coconut milk perfectly. The honey brought out all the flavors treating us to something special. Thanks for sharing, made for ZWT7
Excellent spiced coffee! The flavour of the cloves was not as strong as I feared - usually I hate cloves but in this coffee it added just a perfect hint of flavour. I reduced the honey to one teaspoon which was absolutely enough for me. Thanks for another wondrful coffee joy Annacia!
