Mmmmmm....who can say no to a hot cup of chocolate-cinnamon coffee on a cold winter morning? That's what I thought: absolutely no one. Don't be turned off by the cayenne pepper--it only adds a little heat at the back end of your drink and compliments the chocolate and cinnamon nicely.
Don't forget to use good quality coffee here. I go for the Santa Fe based Aroma Coffee's organic Black Lighting dark roast. You can thank me later!
12 oz quality coffee
2 oz cocoa powder
1/2 oz ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp cayenne red pepper
mix all ingredients together and store in an airtight container. Don't hesitate to play with the proportions to find the perfect balance between coffee and spice for you. Brew as you normally would. Enjoy!
