No good title here…

Coffee drinker?

Ever have it taste bitter? Want a bit of flavor added?

Sprinkle a touch of cinnamon on the grounds before brewing. It cuts the bitter and tastes yummy (very subtle taste).

Works for me.

    I’ve done that! It is yummy! I usually also add a touch of nutmeg, but just a touch.

  2. Heart of Wisdom says:

    Thats sound much better than my Grandmothers advise. She put a egg shell in with the grounds. Said it removed the bitter taste?

    I love coffee! Thanks for the tip. I wonder what else you could add to naturally flavor it without adding in a lot of extras.

    Now this is definitely something worth trying! I love my coffee, and I think cinnamon would add a nice touch.

  5. How on earth did you find that out? I’ve been drinking coffee for eons and never knew that – will give it a try tomorrow morning – thanks!

  6. Yummy. Will have to try this with my coffee drinkin hubby. Good tip!

  7. Glad I checked email before I made my coffee this morning! Thanks for the tip. :o)

  8. Add a sprinkle or two of salt in with your grounds and that will also take care of the bitterness without adding any flavor. I love the touch of cinnamon though, always makes me feel special…(hey, we don’t have a starbucks here)

    Some of the best round-flavored coffe I’ve had is from First Watch daytime cafe (a killer breakfast joint!)in Naples, FL and Cinninnati, OH…I think they put a touch of cinnamon and cocoa in it to make it taste good (but not enough to really taste the ingredients themselves)… Oh I so wish we had a First Watch here in Nashville.

    Really good coffee…Oh and the breakfasts aren’t too bad either…

    It’s quite foggy up here on the hill in West Nashville this morning.

  11. It’s supposed to lower blood pressure too, I’ve heard!

  12. SAHMmy Says says:

    Mmmm…cinnamon! I love it in my coffee too! Also great in hot chocolate and brownies!

  13. What a good idea! I never would’ve thought to do that. :)

  14. Great (and yummy) tip!
    …a drop of vanilla in the water works too!

  15. Just gave it a try ~ eXcellent! ThanX for the tip. It’s a keeper.

  16. The Flip Flop Mamma! says:

    I always add cinnamon right into my coffee!

  17. I do that all the time which makes hubby nuts ’cause he likes his coffee straight up. ;v)

  18. yum!

  19. I will try it. Sounds great and we do have similar taste in chocolate so I trust you.
