Flavoring your own coffee

December 13, 2005

For those of you in a holiday mood, here are a couple of ideas to flavor up a more festive holiday brew at home.

First, from Morning Coffee & Afteroon Tea is a recipe for making your own Christmas coffee by adding cloves, cinnamon and nutmeg to your brew.

Next, from Martha Stewart is a suggestion to make holiday gift coffee by adding vanilla beans or other spices to freshly ground coffee.

Both of these sound interesting, but I’m afraid I’m a purist at heart; I’m playing with a blending a few new (to me) single origin beans for a bit different espresso blend over the holidays…
