Review This Recipe
I love the spicy flavor of this coffee! It can be served as "dessert" to company. I substituted a granulated brown sugar with the strong spices and it was very tasty, you could not tell that it was not real brown sugar.
Cant wait to try it!
This sounds great! Cant wait to try this.
Perfect Meal ending
My daughter and I really liked this! Very tasty, and a perfect finish to our Mexican themed meal. It was an effort to make, but well worth it...:)
Delicious and a MONEY SAVER
I tried this on a whim. We loved it - guests asked for seconds and wanted the recipe. My family likes the taste anise seed adds to
food (I've only used it with meats and vegetables). I was delighted to find another use for a favorite herb. I used the dark brown
sugar and found it worked quite well. Interesting taste change. We'll be making this again!!
MEXICAN SPICED COFFEE
VERY GOOD, EVERYONE LOVED THIS AFTER DINNER FOR A REAL TREAT. ADD CHOCOLATE AND AMAMARETTI. REALLY GREAT.
Well it definetely is not a bad mix, that is for sure, but it lacks a certain pizzaz that other coffees normally have. I do like the cinamon sticks though they add the extra touch that makes it feel like something you should curl up with and drink in front of the fire
