You know that adding spices to your coffee is a great way to infuse flavor into your cup. And many spices are nutritional powerhouses that offer a wide range of health benefits as well. It’s a win-win. Cinnamon, cardamom, nutmeg, vanilla, clove, anise, lavender, ginger, and more are natural compliments to coffee. But did you know that there are different ways to introduce these items into your brew? All are simple to do and worth experimenting with.
Here are 3 Ways to Flavor Your Coffee with Spices:
- Stir ground spice directly into your cup of coffee.
- Store whole spice mixed in with your coffee beans. The longer they stay together, the more flavor will be transferred. You may want to start with a small batch before committing a whole bag of coffee.
- Sprinkle ground spice over your grounds in the coffee maker before brewing. The hot water will carry the taste into your cup.
