|My barista at work|
Jamie, the non-coffee drinker in our house, has become quite the fancy coffee maker. He has started experimenting with different flavors and has come up with a really yummy combination:
Put in the coffee press with about 2 c. water and let perk for a few minutes:
1/8 t. cinnamon, ground
1 pod of cardamom seeds, crushed with the back of a spoon
1 heaping teaspoon of cocoa powder
¼ t. vanilla
After the coffee has achieve perfect brew-ness, pour into a large mug and add:
1-2 teaspoons of sugar
Chocolate soy milk to taste
This weekend he even got REALLY fancy, and whipped up some cream for the top! It did make it seem like something I should have to pay money for J The extra cream he froze in dollops on a cookie sheet and once solid, transferred them to a freezer bag. So now I can put a dollop of whipped cream on my coffee whenever I need that extra “something”.
What an act of love from a man that isn’t fond of coffee himself!
