I created this coffee drink out of a craving for a little kick to my coffee. Based on my love of hot chai, I began to feel that North Americans have a distinct lack of health-giving herbs and spices in our native cuisine. Hopefully a delicious hot cup of Viennexican can assist. Thinking of the spiciness of Viennese coffees and of the chocolate and fruit flavors of South American beverages, I believe the combination makes a beautiful result for the taste buds and the system as a whole!

Cook's Note:

You can substitute molasses to taste for the brown sugar.

If this recipe seems too rich, feel free to substitute skim milk for both the milk and the cream. Alternative milks (rice, almond) should yield a creaminess that is equally enjoyable. If you do experiment in finding the best brew for you, please share your process with the rest of us in the reviews.

Interesting combination of ingredients. Don't know that I'd drink this on a regular basis but it certainly would be nice for a special occasion or a special dinner/brunch. Enjoyed this but for my taste it was too cinnamon-y so I'll cut that in half in the future. Also if you're using milk & cream (which equates to 1/4 cup) directly from the fridge you will not have a hot cup of coffee so you may want to give it a quick heat in the microwave. It was a nice break from my usual cup of "joe." Read More

Good but way too much cinnamon and too bitter I would double the milk and half everything else minus brown sugar I also put in 1 Table spoon white sugar. However I do not like spices like cinnamon or nutmeg if I did this would have been much more welcoming. Read More

I did like this coffee. I tried it only because the picture caught my eye and am glad I did. I don't even like vanilla orange cinnamon cloves and nutmeg. Regardless I would drink this again. Somehow the cocoa and the orange really make it a treat that isn't too much of any one flavor. They all balance and blend nicely. As far as method is concerned though I would warm the milk and mix all the ingredients EXCEPT the coffee in a mug then once combined well add the hot coffee. Otherwise your coffee will get cold. I ended up popping it in the microwave for a few seconds because I like hot coffee. Otherwise it really is a nice cup to share with a cookie. Thanks magicdress for sharing this recipe. Read More

In my opinion it need a bit more sugar. I may have made my coffee too strong also so that may have contributed to the lack of sugar I also didn't use all the orange extract but otherwise it was very good. Read More
