My husband and I are huge coffee drinkers. In fact, there’s very few places we’ve visited where we haven’t found a coffee shop to go to first before exploring. Whether we’re driving around the New England coast or going on a day trip to Bucks County, we’re probably stopping at a coffee shop along the way.
Recently, we had a day at home where we did nothing. Partially because I was sick, but also because we really just needed a day to recoup after the insanely busy September we had. It was busy for good reasons, but it was still pretty packed with activity, so it was nice to be able to just relax.
That morning, as we slowly woke up and began to brew a pot of coffee for us to enjoy, I was in the mood for something with a little spice to it. Whenever I get coffee in the mornings, I usually get the same thing, but today I was in the mood for something different. I sprinkled some cinnamon into my cup of coffee and poured a mixture of hazelnut creamer and cinnamon (that I frothed using our frother) on top and sprinkled a small dusting of cinnamon on top.
The flavor reminds me a lot of a cinnamon roll. It’s sweet with a little spice to it from the cinnamon. It’s a flavor that I am looking forward to enjoying a lot more during those slow weekend mornings when we don’t have other things planned. If you’re interested in the recipe, feel free to enjoy it below!
Time needed: 10 minutes.
- Brew Your Coffee
This step is pretty simple depending on your brewer and how you like your coffee. We typically set our coffee brewer to the “rich” setting because the coffee tastes more robust but smoother.
- Mix A Tablespoon of Cinnamon & Hazlenut Creamer Together
I recommend Hazlenut creamer because of the flavor it gives the overall drink, but it tastes just as delicious with regular heavy cream (or almond milk) with two drops of vanilla.
- Froth Your Mixture of Cinnamon & Hazlenut
I use the frother on our Ninja Coffee Bar because it’s quick and easy to use. However, if you don’t have a device that froths your coffee, you can get a similar effect by heating up your milk either on a stove or in the microwave and whipping it.
- Add Cinnamon to Coffee (Optional)
This is not a mandatory step as it tastes great both ways, but I personally like mine to have cinnamon in the coffee as well.
- Pour the Froth Mixture Ontop of the Coffee & Garnish
The last step is to slowly pour the froth on the top of your coffee and sprinkle a dusting of cinnamon on the top.
