If you want more of a spicy kick to your morning coffee, add a slice of fresh ginger. The ginger can be added to the coffee grounds before brewing, or you can put the ginger slice into your freshly brewed hot coffee. Let the ginger steep for a few minutes before enjoying your spicy treat.
3. Coconut Oil
You already know that coconut oil is great for cooking, but did you know it makes a delicious addition to your coffee, too?
For a rich, flavorful taste with a hint of coconut—add a spoonful of coconut oil into your hot coffee, but be sure to whip it up, so that it blends together well.
4. Orange Zest
Citrus fruits can add a burst of sweet, tangy flavor to your favorite dishes, and can do the same for your morning coffee. Add a strip of orange zest to your coffee grounds before brewing for a bolder taste.
Give coffee a spicy kick by adding a few grinds of peppercorns (any color) to the grounds before brewing. Remember a little can go a long way, so start small and see whats the right amount is for you.
6. Cocoa Powder
Not quite ready for the sweetness of a chocolate bar first thing in the morning, but aren't one to turn your nose up at chocolatey flavor? Reach for a spoonful unsweetened cocoa powder. Try sprinkling it over your grounds in a Chemex or French press before brewing.
7. Condensed Milk
Condensed milk is the secret ingredient with the power to turn your coffee into a luxurious treat. Inspired by Thai and Vietnamese coffee traditions, a dollop of condensed milk will lighten your coffee and give it a sweet taste.
