This past weekend, my sweetheart threw a cardamom pod and a bit of cinnamon stick in the grinder along with the coffee beans and the resulting brew was heavenly. This got me thinking: What a great gift idea for the coffee-lovers on your list! Here are some great all-natural, no-artificial-anything flavored coffee ideas.
Start with good quality, organic, fair trade whole coffee beans. Add any of the following, place in attractive bags, and wait for the compliments. (Best to err on the side of caution and go easy on the additions.)
Dried chipotle or other chile pepper
Almonds or hazelnuts
Dried orange or tangerine peel
