Wednesday What’s in Mo’s Cup- Cinnamon Coffee

I should be accused of blog neglect! I’m sorry for slacking lately, forgive me?

Today in my cup, I bring you the obsession that I just haven’t been able to get over yet.  That’s right, I’m talking about cinnamon coffee again.  The last time I told you about cinnamon coffee, I was making it with Caribou Coffee Daybreak Blend.  Now that that bag is gone (sigh, it was such wonderful coffee!) I have moved on to Seattle’s Best Level Three.  Say what? Level, huh? In short, Seattle’s Best recently changed up the packaging and naming of their coffees which I will explain further  in a post next week.  All you need to know now is that cinnamon coffee tastes good when you use pretty much any coffee as your base.  On a completely different note, today called for iced coffee.  It is hot here; really, really hot.  Which is kind of weird considering the cool spell (40 degrees in Atlanta in late May…really?!) last week, but hey we survived lol.



5 cups water

5 Tbsp ground coffee

2 tsp ground cinnamon

Dressed with:

Sucralose packets

Vanilla Soy Creamer

SO there it is, a simple way to brighten your morning coffee.  I’m contemplating using other spices since cinnamon has worked out so well. Here are my ideas:

  • Apple Pie Spice
  • Pumpkin Pie Spice
  • Ground Red Pepper???
  • Cinnamon + Ginger
  • This Cocoa Chile Blend from McCormick (contains cocoa powder, chipotle chili, and paprika)
What do you think? Any more suggestions? Obviously I wouldn’t try them all at once, but I’ll have to add a pinch of this and pinch of that to my coffee filter and report back to you over the next few weeks.

  1. […] to amp up the eggnog flavor I suggest you add some cinnamon to the grounds before brewing (like Mo’s Cinnamon Coffee) and then substitute your creamer with some actual eggnog.  Eggnog is never short around my house, […]

  2. […] page about ‘flavored coffees.’  I like to add spices to my coffee before brewing (see here) to enhance the flavor but I’m not a huge fan of artificially flavored […]
