Would you like to turn your regular cup of coffee into a tasteful one? This can be achieved with one simple ingredient – a pinch of cinnamon.
It’s Good for Your Health
Besides the fact that it improves the coffee taste, cinnamon is good for our health. Some studies have confirmed that cinnamon – coffee combo have positive health effects (heart health, hormonal balance, weight control, …). So, if you don’t have any allergies to cinnamon, you can start using it on a daily basis.
There are numerous interpretations of cinnamon coffee recipes and most of them are just too complicated. You don’t have to make half and half, grind cinnamon or use 10 different syrups. After all, regular coffee drinkers usually don’t like all those iced-white-chocolate-peppermint-cinnamon-latte drinks.
You can make a really nice cup of cinnamon coffee just by following these simple rules:
Some suggest that cinnamon sticks are a must. False. First of all, quality cinnamon sticks are usually very expensive. Plus, if you are using a cinnamon stick, you need to grind it first. I LOVE pre-ground cinnamon.
How much cinnamon per cup of coffee?! One teaspoon of cinnamon is just too much. This spice is strong – a single pinch will do the job.
Coffee, Milk and Cream
Don’t get disappointed if your black coffee & cinnamon drink doesn’t taste like that fancy chocolate cinnamon mocha at the coffee shop. This is impossible. If you want to make a similar drink, you will need to add few extra ingredients.

I like to make my cinnamon coffee with milk and sometimes I add whipped cream. No matter what brewing method I am using, my coffee always tastes great.
Oh, I almost forgot – when making cinnamon coffee, choose dark to medium coffee blends. Light, morning blends are not a very good choice in this case.
