Spiced Coffee Recipes
There are many different of ways to improve on basic cup of hot coffee, and my personal favourite is to add a dash or two of something spicy. I love a hint of cinnamon, cloves or nutmeg. Adding whole spices to your coffee grounds before you brew is a good way to do this. That's a little handy tip. Trust me. The second and third recipes below call tfor this technique, but the first one has you add the ground spices after brewing.
So, here are a few simple recipes for spiced coffee. These are all for coffee served hot so these drinks will really keep you warm during these cold winter days. It almost makes you forget that it won't stop snowing.

Sweet Fennel Coffee
