Spice it Up!

Enhance Your Favorite Brew with Spice

Ever thought of adding spice to your favorite coffee? There are a few popular spices that cross geographic and cultural boundaries and are used with all roast styles. Examples include cardamom, nutmeg and cinnamon. Cloves and cayenne are offered in Indian restaurants – especially in dark-roasted coffee. Ginger and lavender work well in medium roast coffees from Central America. Even good old salt & pepper makes for an interesting espresso shot.

If you’re interested in dabbling with spiced coffees, feel free to stop by the shop for ideas and information.

 Fresh spice can enhance coffee flavor. Experiment with sweet, savory, floral and pungent spices.
