Don't let the ingredients scare you off. This coffee has a bit of a kick, but it's just right for warming up on those cold winter days. It's easily made in a french press or a regular drip coffee maker. The cinnamon stick can be used more than once. Top with whipped cream and sprinkle with ground cinnamon if desired.

I was so looking forward to this and realized at the last minute that I had no coconut milk so.... since I had ground enough coffee and spices for a half pot of coffee I added about 1/4 tsp of coconut extract to the pot of coffee then added fat-free half and half to each cup. Nice treat in the morning and also a nice after-dinner coffee! I will definitely pick up some coconut milk to try this one again. Thanks for sharing! Read More

I like the idea of this but I didn't care for the cloves and the honey was too sweet for my taste (I'd prefer it less sweet and I'd use agave or sugar). Also this makes weak coffee as written. It's a good start though! Read More

I love coconut so I couldn't resist trying this. It tastes great! The coffee flavour is a little weak maybe it's just the brand we buy. Surprisingly my fiance liked it too despite his aversion to all things coconut. I would make this again as a treat; coconut milk isn't a staple in our house. Will try it with a stronger blend of coffee next time. Read More

Excellent. I loved it. And really easy to pull together. I wouldn't make it all the time because coconut milk is a bit pricey but it was a nice splurge for a Sunday morning. Read More

had to make a few changes but enjoyed it anyway. Will try it the original way next time. Instead of crushed red pepper I used Cayenne pepper. I didn't have a cinnomon stick so i added about 1/2 tsp of ground cinnomon. I think it was a little on the weak side (for cinnomon). I wondered about the 2 whole cloves but went with it anyway. I didn't find them to overpower the flavor. Infact there is a spice flavor but it isn't overwhelming at all. I bearly noticed the pepper (only because I knew to look for it) my husband didn't notice it at all. This is a fun drink I would consider doing again! though I want to do it with whip and cinn on top next time. Read More

This is a great treat. I doubled the coffee grounds but otherwise made the recipe as is. To make it a little lighter on calories I'll try using milk and coconut extract next time. Read More

Yum! I'm drinking this right now. It really hits the spot. I found this recipe when I was going to make coffee and realized I was out of milk but had a can of coconut milk on hand. I didn't have cinnamon stick so I used 1/2 teaspoon ground and it was good but I will try the stick next time since I will definitely be making this again. Thanks! Read More

Wow! I love the spicy kick the crushed red pepper gives this. Plus the creamy coconut milk and cloves and cinnamon combine to make one very fun and different coffee. Perfection. Read More

This is a tasty cup of coffe. My husband didn't care to try this recipe and since some reviews thought the coffee was too weak I used an already brewed cup of coffe. I put 1/4 tsp crushed red pepper 1/4 tsp cinnamon & 1 clove in a tea bag. I poured the coffee over it & let it steep a little. Then I heated the coconut milk & honey to mix in with it. it turned out tasty. It's probably better with the spices brewed into the coffee though but I'll make this again. Thanks for the recipe.
