A dash of cinnamon, a sip of coffee

Imagine this. As you stir in your bed, just about to wake up, a familiar aroma makes it a day worth getting up for. Aroma of freshly roasted coffee beans, being ground to make your morning cup of coffee. Isn't it a beautiful to just think about something like that? I go to great lengths to procure freshly roasted whole beans for making coffee at home. there is something so fulfilling about the whole fuss of making coffee the hard way. In fact, the only way I can make it taste better is by adding cinnamon to my cup of coffee. 

Cinnamon and coffee are, to my taste-buds, a match made in heaven. Add to that the fact that cinnamon comes with a whole lot of health benefits, and there really is no excuse to brew yourself this divine cuppa! I am sharing an easy Cinnamon Coffee recipe in the hopes that it will make the world a better place, because everyone will be so happy! Add a dollop of whipped cream to this coffee and you have a fabulous post dinner dessert ready!

Cinnamon sticks
Pot of hot, brewed coffee
Ground cinnamon for garnish

Place a stick of cinnamon in every mug, and then pour hot coffee over that. Sprinkle some ground cinnamon on top. If serving post dinner, you can add a heaped tablespoon of chilled, whipped cream to each mug.

Now sit back with your favorite book, relax and enjoy your beautiful cup of coffee. Also remember that cinnamon can boost metabolism, relive congestion, and supports digestive health!

  1. Oh my god, Pratishtha! I do this every single morning. Not the stick though. Too much of an effort. But I do sprinkle some of the powder on hand-beaten coffee. Can't imagine it any other way. :)
