Cinnamon Christmas Coffee

Christmas is right around the corner and we are getting into the spirit. Our advent calendar has been up since December 1 and we have been enjoying small gifts each morning. We have been burning our Adventskranz (Advent wreath) each Sunday. No stockings or tree this year but our presents are wrapped and under the rubber tree (sometimes you just got to go with the flow!)

We made our gingerbread houses...

And perhaps most importantly, we have our cinnamon coffee! With just your regular coffee and a teaspoon of cinnamon you can make your whole house smell like Christmas in just a matter of minutes. We make it with decaf at night, light our advent candles and curl up on the couch to watch a movie. Perfect for the cold and snowy weather we have been having.

It's beginning to feel a lot like Christmas!

Super easy cinnamon coffe:

Whatever coffee you use normally (need grounds not beans)
1 tsp cinnamon

Add 1 tsp of cinnamon for every 3-4 scoops of grounds you use.

Mix the cinnamon into the grounds and make coffee as usual.

In these pictures we are having coffee at night so we are not using our coffee maker but instead our manual drip.
For only a few dollars you can make coffee one or two cups at a time without having to set up your entire machine.

Add your usual, sugar, cream, or milk and enjoy the smell and taste of Christmas!
