    Diabetic version.

    Pam Laubenthal from oak Lawn, IL

    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.

    Delicious and a MONEY SAVER

    Paula LEOTTA from MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA

    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!!

    Its Alright

    Roxanne Schuch from Newton, IL

    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
