Christmas Coffee Recipe

Christmas Coffee Recipe

This recipe makes enough for one big coffee gift or you can divide it into smaller jars and give it to a few people. Or just keep it all to yourself and jolt yourself into the holidays!

4 cups dark roasted ground coffee
8 cinnamon sticks
80 whole allspice berries
40 whole cloves
20 whole black peppercorns


Pour the ground coffee into a large jar or container that has a tight-fitting lid.

Into a mortar, break up the cinnamon sticks a bit using your fingers. Add the remaining ingredients and then use a pestle to gently crush everything up. You want the cinnamon sticks to still be in chunky pieces and most of the other spices to be less-than-whole but not powdery. 

Add the crushed up spices to the coffee in the jar. Put the lid on and shake it all up.
