Spiced Coffee Recipe

One of my favorite things about Fall, is the seasonal coffee. Every coffee shop you walk into has some variation of spiced coffee. When Starbucks puts out their Pumpkin Spice Latte its the unofficial start of Autumn. 

Instead of paying extra for the specialty coffee, or if you don't feel like going out, try my recipe. 

Spices you need: Allspice, cloves, nutmeg, cinnamon, ginger

Since we're making this in a coffee maker, you don't need to use the ground version if you don't have it. Whole spices are fine. Also, if you don't like or have allspice, or cloves, then leave it out. The coffee will taste great anyways!

Combine and mix well in a small bowl, as much or as little of each, according to your tastes. Remember that nutmeg is very strong. I used about 2 tbsp of each. 

Fill your coffee maker with water, and get your coffee, and sugar ready. 

Put your desired amount of coffee, sugar ( this is optional, and make sure that using sugar here is okay for your particular coffee maker,) and the spices.

Mix well with fork, and that's it! Let the coffee maker do the rest!

It smells so good when it's brewing! Enjoy!
