When the weather turns crisp and the ground is covered with red and yellow leaves, a cup of spiced coffee seems apropos. You can sample a wonderful Fair Trade Pumpkin Spice flavor fragranced with cinnamon and pumpkin pie spices on www.greenmountaincoffee.com. You can also create your own tasty treat, like this spiced coffee recipe below:
* 4 to 7 whole cloves
* ½ inch cinnamon bark (whole cinnamon)
* 4 to 7 whole green cardamom
* 1 to 3 tsp. Brown sugar (if desired)
* Whipped cream
* Shaved Chocolate and cinnamon sprinkle
Brew a pot of your favorite coffee, a little too strong.
In a small pan, add 1 1/2 cup water, 4-7 cloves, 1/2 inch cinnamon bark broken up, 4-7 whole cardamom -split the tips, and 1-3 teaspoons of sugar. Heat up to boiling point for 3-4 minutes.
Mix the coffee and the spice-mix, pour into cups, top with whipped cream and sprinkle with chocolate and cinnamon.
Add more sugar if desired.
This also makes a great drink with some Tia Maria or Mozart-liqueurs, for a more adult evening drink.
