Autumn Delight Coffee

"As the leaves change to glorious rust and pumpkin and ruby reds in regions blessed with a "true autumn", the desire for something spicy to drink while watching the theatre of the changing leaves is definitely on order. This drink makes the grade, and then some."

    This is wonderful! I love the spice flavor with the orange! Made for 1-2-3 Tag.

    I love coffee and orange together. One of my favorite local places (NOT Starbucks!) makes a latte with a large strip of orange peel in it. This is better, because it has the addition of spices. I subbed some Splenda for the sugar cube. I am going to try it with some steamed milk next time! Thanks for another winner!

    It's not fall yet, but this is definitely a delightful coffee. I loved the orange and spice flavor that is prevalent in this coffee. Today I made it with the orange juice, next time I'll be making it with the orange liquer. I garnished the coffee with whipped cream, orange rind, cinnamon and a cinnamon stick. Thank you so much for sharing this tasty recipe...Queenie.
