Cinnamon and cardamom, who can resist! Perfect for a chilly day :) Like Bayhill, I usually prefer unsweetened coffee except for flavoured latte or mochaccino etc., but I love the combination of coffee and honey. Thanks for sharing! Made for CQ 2014

Mmm...Christmas time in September! That's what this delicious coffee tasted like. I normally like my coffee black and unsweetened, but I thoroughly enjoyed the spices and honey in this. I used a dark French roast and it worked perfectly. I was out of ground cardamom, so I had to grind up some whole cardamom seeds to use. I will be making this often during the cold winter months. Thank you for sharing this wonderful recipe. **Made for Culinary Quest - Suitcase Gourmets**
