Cardamom Coffee

Adding flavors to coffee is nothing new - there are many flavor infused coffees available in most supermarkets and coffee shops, but is easy to add to coffee at home, and the aroma that fills your kitchen is sensational.

Green cardamom is used widely in the Middle East in coffee drinks, and sprinkled on sweet dishes, in Indian dishes, and in many Scandinavian pastries and cakes. Many of us have tried cardamom in Chai Tea which is a mixture of black tea, ginger root, cinnamon bark, black pepper, cardamom, cloves and star anise.

Here's how to make your own Cardamom Coffee to sip in front of a fire as the chilly evenings close in (yes, even here in San Diego it has been getting steadily cooler!).

Method

Before brewing coffee in a drip coffee maker, place a cardamom pod in the filter bag with the coffee. As the coffee brews the cardamom will infuse the coffee with a wonderful flavor and perfume, making an exotic and warming drink.
