I do not drink coffee, but my Dad does.
When he comes over I brew his coffee in a French press and he loves
the coffee. Occasionally we go
to a very successful diner that roasts and grinds their own coffee.
My dad asked the owner what kind of coffee he served and he replied that it was
their own special grind that they add cinnamon to.
Everyone loves the brew. So
next time you put those coffee grounds into your coffee maker or French
press, add a dash or more of cinnamon and see if you like it.
Other spices that you might like are ground coriander,
celery seed, chocolate, or raspberry leaves.

the seeds and pulp from a pumpkin and put them in a medium saucepot with
some sweet pie spices and enough water to cover. Simmer for 30 minutes,
then cover and steep for an additional 30 minutes. Strain out the solids,
leaving a dark orange liquid. This pumpkin seed stock can be reduced,
seasoned with salt, and emulsified with cold butter to make a clean,
pure-tasting sauce for fish or pasta. It can also be used as a steaming or
poaching liquid for shellfish and vegetables. Finally, we’ve been known
to bring it to a simmer and pour it over ground coffee in a French press to
make a non-traditional but absolutely delicious version of pumpkin coffee.
