A few weeks ago, we spent the night at our friends’ house. They warned us that they drink their coffee a little different….they put in cinnamon and cayenne pepper for antioxidants. We were excited to try something new and, well, we adore it! We’ve made our coffee that way ever since. Bret has even been toying with measurements for the perfect blend. Me? I’m a little more, um, non-measurement in my preparations. It’s been a very tired day for me, so I decided to make a half pot of coffee to power through. I added in my version of measurements and booooooooy howdy, I added a lot of cayenne pepper! Hello antioxidants, I guess?
I definitely made this face on the first sip….
So what has Bret found to be the perfect blend? Or some approximation thereof, so I at least know where to start.
His current levels are – 75-80% full of a 1/2 tsp for the cayenne pepper and ~50% of a 1/2 tsp for cinnamon. Today was like 75% of the 1/2 tsp of cinnamon and I thought it was too much. lol, it’s a work in progress! I don’t think I’ve hit “too much” on the cayenne pepper! 🙂
p.s. this is per cup of coffee. My cup is about 12-16 oz.
