Tips & Tricks for Perfecting Holiday Spice Coffee

I prefer using ©Starbucks Pikes or Sumatra coffee.  There is always that extra special richness using a dark roast coffee.  However you can use whatever type of coffee you prefer, including decaffeinated coffee.

Consider changing up the spices or the amount of each spice.  If you want to really spice it up you can add a pinch of chili powder – it gives the Holiday Spice Coffee that extra kick

By using skim milk as the only additional item, you have a wonderful holiday beverage that is low calorie and low fat!  A perfect addition to a small book club meeting

If you want to make this into a more decedent dessert type drink, go ahead and add some of your favorite whipped cream.  Consider adding flavored whipped cream as a perfect topping.  Did someone suggest mocha whipped cream?

You can also add a tablespoon of cocoa powder to the coffee in the filter basket to make a Mocha Spice Coffee – YUMMY!

This is a perfect holiday beverage for a Christmas Party or just just sitting at home, in front of your fireplace relaxing

Background of Holiday Spice Coffee

Ok so I love holiday flavors, especially around Thanksgiving and Christmas.  My favorite flavors include cinnamon and cloves, yummy!  I am also a big coffee drinker and it is my all time favorite beverage.  My family would say I am coffee obsessed HAHAHA.  

So during the holidays I love to mix my favorite beverage with my favorite holiday flavors.  The result is known at my house as Holiday Spice Coffee.  This recipe is for the folks who love flavor but want a black, low calorie or low fat coffee.  This recipe is also those of you who don’t like all the extra additives that go into a “latte” type drink, you just prefer straight up spicy flavor!

To really change this recipe and create a more dessert type coffee, definitely add cocoa powder to your coffee as it is being brewed.  This gives you that oh so awesome chocolate, spice taste at a fraction of the calories or fat!  If you want to add a little drama to your coffee consider a bit of whipped cream to top off the Holiday Spice Coffee.  There is nothing like a little bit of whipped cream to dress up this beverage.  Consider using whipped cream in the can, great for designs and fun to make.

This holiday recipe is perfect for your Thanksgiving gathering or Christmas Party.  Your friends and family will delight in the wonderful aroma and amazing taste of this holiday treat.  Remember to add this to your list of holiday favorites along with my Delicious Oatmeal Cookie Bars with Jam. Start early, Halloween is the perfect time to start enjoying Holiday Spiced Coffee.  It will become a fall and winter staple for you and your family.  Enjoy!
