spiced coffee cover

I love adding spices and flavours to our regular coffee, especially during the festive season. It just feels so… festive.

This is a very simple recipe for spiced coffee using orange zest, cinnamon, and maple syrup.

Enjoy a cup in your favourite mug on Christmas morning, or any morning. My favourite mug is my Murdoch Mysteries ‘Save Crabtree’ mug. My husband surprised me with it one night when I got home from work. It was such a thoughtful gesture and one of my favourite moments of the past year. Thanks, Husband.
