In this post learn how to make delicious Fall spiced coffee using your everyday coffee and a few spices from your cabinet!
It’s that time of year again! Fall spiced coffees are all the rage. But before you go out and spend a fortune on a bag of coffee you only buy once a year, I’m going to show you how to take your favorite everyday coffee, add a few spices you have on hand to the grounds, and brew it up as perfectly spiced blend.
Gingerbread Spice is a near twin to pumpkin spice, most people won’t be able to tell the difference. I like to add a little milk to mine and bring up the fall flavor by adding just a teaspoon of molasses or maple syrup but you can opt for sugar instead, or just make it however you like it and take time to sip and savor!
For our perfect coffee, Ricky and I love Red Diamond Classic Blend. It is our absolute favorite: smooth, never acidic, with a full bodied taste that is reliable every time. We get the big can at Walmart for about $10, which is a very good deal, especially considering we’d pay twice that for this quality and flavor!
To make this delicious coffee, all you have to do is add grounds to your standard coffee maker as you normally do and then sprinkle the spices over the top of the grounds before brewing your coffee.
The exact recipe is at the bottom of this post in a printable recipe card format.
After you’ve added your spices to the grounds, brew your coffee as usual.
Now for all of you who like your coffee black, this is as far as you need to go.
As for me and my coffee, we will add a little half and half and a teaspoon of molasses or maple syrup. Top with whipped cream if you like and make it fancy by adding a dusting of gingerbread cookie crumbs!
You really won’t believe how easy this is to make and how much money it will save you in the short and long term!
Helpful hint: If you have teenage children or grandchildren, this is sure to wow them!
But it wows the adult crowd as well!
