Orange, Spice & Everything Nice…Coffee

Sound familiar? It should…this coffee uses almost the exact same ingredients as the french toast I shared yesterday. I have heard of spiced coffee before and figured I could just try the same ingredients as the french toast. I loved it!

Orange, Spice and Everything Nice Coffee
  • 2 heaping tablespoons of freshly ground coffee*
  • 1/2 t cinnamon
  • 1/4 t cloves
  • 1/4 t nutmeg
  • dash of allspice
  • 1 heaping teaspoon orange zest
  • 8 oz boiling water – let rest about 30 seconds after boiling

Mix all the ingredients into your french press.spiced coffee-2

Pour the water over the coffee mixture and give it a quick stir. Set the timer for 4 minutes.spiced coffee-3

After 4 minutes, slowly…press…down…

Can you see that deep mahogany color?spiced coffee-7

I warmed up about 1/3 c milk with 1 t of sugar in a mug before pouring in the coffee.spiced coffee-8

Slightly sweet and just the right balance of spices.spiced coffee-9

This was perfect accompaniment to the spiced french toast. With all the similar flavors, you might think it would be overkill. But the sweetness of the french toast with the slight bitterness of the coffee, along with the matching spice flavors, created a great meal.spiced coffee & french toast-1

*Note: The first time I made this, I used medium roast beans. I’ve since made it with a dark roast and liked the medium roast much better.

      THANK YOU! It was really pretty light! I still need to work on composition and learning Lightroom (and oh hey, maybe touching my ISO) but once in a while I get lucky! 🙂

    OMG! I need to get my french press back from my mom. I have been enjoying Starbucks Christmas blend, which has a little bit of spice in it : )

    OOooh I need to search the cabinets and see if we have a french press so I can try it. Something tells me mixing the spices into a drip coffee maker won’t produce the same results…

    I cold-brew coffee in my French press overnight several times a week, and will try this with tonight’s batch! Love a good twist on my morning brew.
