How To Spice Up Boring Coffee

Published Sunday, 17 March, 2013 by Bonobosoph




  • 1. Milk, a mug and a half (or more)
  • 2. Instant coffee, however much you like
  • 3. A couple of cloves
  • 4. 7-10 (generous grab, doesn't matter too much) of green cardamoms cracked open.
  • 5. A little piece of cinammon
  • 6. Sugar to your liking (i like my coffee sweeeeeet)
  • a saucepan, because we're going to get fancy.


1. Pour the milk into small saucepan and add the cloves, cinammon and cardamom.

2. Heat on low-medium until it is boiling like crazy, turn down the heat and let it bubble for a few minutes until the milk has shrunk to fill your mug (it gets tastier when it evaporates)

3. Turn off heat, add coffee and sugar and pour through a sieve into your mug of choice.

you could also plonk everything in a mug and microwave until hot. Boiling milk in the saucepan for a while adds magic imo so make it for more than one person to make the longer time spent worth while.

you can use any combo of whole spices to add to your coffee, fennel seeds also taste nice and are a good digestive aid.
