How to drink and make spiced coffee
People have been mixing spices with coffee for generations. Families and communities from all around the world held their "secret" coffee recipes, heralding them as the best coffee the world has ever seen.
Spices give coffee depth of flavor, balancing out the bitter notes and enhancing the taste, drinkability , and aroma of an already near-perfect morning ritual.
What is Spiced Coffee?
Cinnamon, ginger and other spices are not just for dessert! They add an interesting twist on your morning cup of coffee. The sweetness and delicate spiciness of cinnamon makes this drink both refreshing and warming at once while also adding much more flavor than regular coffee will provide alone (no offense!).
What are the health benefits of spiced coffee?
Not only does spiced coffee taste great, but it also has some health benefits. Cinnamon is a spice that has been shown to help regulate blood sugar levels, so adding it to your coffee may help to stabilize your energy levels throughout the day.
Ginger is another spice with health benefits, and it has been traditionally used to help settle the stomach. So if you're feeling a little queasy in the morning, a cup of spiced coffee may help to ease your symptoms.
How do I make spiced coffee?
Making spiced coffee is easy! Simply add your choice of spices to your coffee in the morning. Even a tablespoon of cinnamon would elevate the flavor and health benefit of your coffee.

Overall, spiced coffee appears to be a healthy drink. It’s rich in antioxidants and may have some benefits for your heart, brain, and liver. However, more research is needed to confirm these effects.
But in my humble opinion, the flavor of spiced coffee is far better than regular coffee alone (sorry purists) and I felt a more level, far-less jittery energy than when I drink a standard cup of coffee alone.
My final opinion is that spiced coffee is a delicious, healthy drink that you should consider adding to your morning routine! Not only will it give your coffee extra flavor, but the spices also provide health benefits. Give it a try and see for yourself how wonderful spiced coffee can be!
