Cinnamon And Nutmeg Iced Coffee

I have to code but it’s hot. So…

  • Coffee
  • Cinnamon
  • Nutmeg
  • One accidentally generous pouring of brown sugar
  • A few ice cubes
  • Milk
  • Stein?
  • I also used vanilla essence, but it went completely undetected, so skip that

I put the ice-cubes and sugar in a glass, then brew a double espresso with about half a teaspoon of cinnamon and a pinch of nutmeg in with the grounds (I use an Aeropress – anything that does espresso should work). It’s hot, but it drips slowly onto the sugar and ice, dissolving it and cooling as it goes. Once you fill it up with cold milk and stir, it’s chilled.

It turned out milder, smoother and sweeter than a two-shot americano, and the spices work better in a cold drink. Hazardously drinkable.

  1. /me stares at it for a while with mouth open, drooling a bit before going into stealth mode and sneaking up to steal

  2. That sounds delicious! You should do another blog where you talk about all the food you eat while developing Gunpoint.

  3. This is a fantastic start to the morning and gave me an excuse to raid my spice chest (well, technically it’s a tin, but I like to pretend).

  4. Dat Coffee… Personally I prefer the Kopi Luwak, the world’s rarest coffee, which is extracted from Civet (a cat relative) Crap in Sumatra. Cat butt is good.

  5. This is exactly what I feel like right now. We have a serious heat wave going on, and I’ve been writing gobs and gobs of code as well. Sounds killer.
