Moroccan spiced coffee is well-suited for brewing in an automatic drip maker, or French coffee press. An exotic flavor without being overwhelming.
If you don't have a coffee/spice grinder, substitute ground coffee and ground spices. Stir them together to mix.
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Total Time: 10 minutes
Yield: 4 to 6 servings
1/2 cup coffee or espresso beans
1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
1 or 2 whole cloves
seeds from 3 or 4 cardamom pods
1/4 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger (optional)
1/4 teaspoon black pepper (optional)
Place all ingredients into a coffee grinder and process. Store all unused coffee in an airtight container.
Use the spiced ground coffee, one to two tablespoons per serving, to brew spiced coffee or espresso. (Note: The ground spices may clog the filter basket in electric espresso makers, so other brewing methods are preferred.)
Serve the spiced coffee black, or with sugar and hot milk as desired.
