Spiced coffee is one of our local traditions, however it is also a quick and simple way of transforming an ordinary mug of coffee into a heart-warming cup of brew 🙂
For 3 cups of coffee, warm up 500ml of water. If you have a coffee pot use this. alternatively an ordinary saucepan will do. Throw in your spices:
1 cinnamon stick
1 1/2 teaspoon of whole cloves
1 teaspoon whole aniseed
If you are using ground spices, use slightly less. Simmer for a few minutes until the water starts to turn very slightly brown, absorbing the flavours from the spices. Next, add the coffee. 2 tablespoons of instant or ground coffee. If you use ground coffee, allow it to simmer for a couple of minutes before proceeding.
Strain the coffee using a tea strainer, or a piece of clean cotton cloth. Add sugar to taste, and serve.
