Flavored Coffees

When I drink black coffee I add cinnamon to the coffee to give it some flavors without adding calories. A barista I know adds cinnamon to her ground coffee before she brews it at home. It's better to flavor coffee yourself since companies typically use chemical flavoring. Yuck.

Here are some other tips to flavor coffee from Joy of Cooking. Add any of the following to one pound of ground coffee (before brewing).

4 ounces ground chicory
4 ounces cocoa nibs
4 ounces cracked cinnamon sticks
4 star anise
4 vanilla beans (halved lengthwise and cut into pieces)
several large pieces of citrus zest
