Mediterranean Coffee

"I put spice into pretty much everything I can so this recipe fit me to a T. I have yet to add the ask for chocolate syrup (I added the optional found below) and I use splenda in place of sugar. I have been pouring a cup of brewed coffee and adding Splenda, some loose anise seeds, a couple of cloves and a cinnamon stick. I like to bite the seeds and cloves and the coffee is so good. I class it as romantic just because I think it is."

  1. My DH enjoyed this coffee, I omitted the anise seed as I did not have any at the time when I made this, I reduced this by half and only used a couple of whole cloves, thanks for sharing hon!...Kitten:)
  2. Another great coffee Annacia. I enjoyed this mocha spiced coffee very much. This dark, rich, thick, spiced coffee is infused with alot of flavours that all blend well together, creating a lovely taste treat. Thanks for sharing.
  3. This was surprisingly really good! I used star anise as I did not have the seeds and I did not use the optional chocolate syrup. I twisted my orange rind until some drops of oil came out and it really added a great citrus flavor. Thanks Annacia for posting. I will make this one again!
  4. What a great blend of flavors! I used Splenda (not as much as called for though, because I don't like my coffee too sweet) and skipped the whipped cream. I really like the anise flavor with the coffee! Thanks, Annacia, for posting this!
  5. I don't really like licorice flavour of anise seed so I scaled this recipe down and only made one cup. I was sorely tempted to substitute the chocolate syrup with a local 100% chocolate that comes in bars and is made from freshly ground cocoa beans but I decided for the first attempt not to stray too far from the original recipe. I was forced to use star anise because I coudn't find any anise seed in the stores. I used a fraction less than suggested. I'm glad I did, as a little goes a long way and the taste was present without being cloying:-)It still managed to overpower the cinnamon so I think I will add a bit more(cinnamon) next time. My Dh and I enjoyed this.
