Holiday Recipes

The holidays are a great time to share a great cup of coffee with the people you love. Spices are a great way to add variety to your coffee. Try adding cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg, anise, allspice, and one of our favorites cardamom.

You aren’t stuck with white sugar as your only sweetener option. You can balance the spices with a variety of different sweeteners like brown sugar, raw sugar, honey, agave, molasses, or real maple syrup.

If you want to take your holiday coffee service to the next level try these recipes.
