MrsDrPoe: Holiday Coffee

It's another What's for Dinner Wednesday where 'dinner' isn't so much dinner but a drink.  As you all know, I love the Christmas season with all it's sights and scents, and this year, I experimented with creating a coffee that encapsulated all of it.

Ingredients: 1 cup coffee beans (OR ground coffee), 2 tablespoons mulling spices (OR approximately 2 tablespoons combined of orange rind, cinnamon sticks, fresh nutmeg, and allspice OR 2 tablespoons combined of orange zest, ground cinnamon, ground nutmeg, and ground allspice).

If you have a coffee grinder- place the beans and mulling spices (or first substitute) in your machine, and grind the mixture to your desired constancy.

If you don't have a coffee grinder- place the grounds and second substitute for mulling spices in a small bowl or coffee filter, and stir to combine.

Brew the seasoned grounds as normal, and serve up your cup of Joe with sugar and creamer if desired.  Enjoy!
