My friend called me up last week, raving about what she had just made with her pot of coffee. It sounded so yummy, that I quickly made up a pot for myself. I put the baby to bed and then had a peaceful and tasty coffee house style drink without leaving my house. YUM!
Thanks Brenda for a great idea!
1/2 pot of brewed coffee
1/2 a vanilla bean
3 sticks of cinnamon
cream, sugar, whipped cream (opt)
While your 1/2 pot of coffee is brewing, cut one whole vanilla bean in half. (Save half for the next pot.) Split the remaining half in half to expose all the vanilla seeds. Add the split vanilla bean to the pot of coffee along with the cinnamon sticks. Allow them to seep for 5-10 minutes.
Pour yourself a cup of coffee. Add creamer and sugar to your normal liking. Enjoy!
Note: You can easily make this for a whole pot of coffee. However, with whole vanilla beans being so expensive I was trying to stretch it and didn’t want to end up wasting any.

You could use the vanilla bean to make vanilla sugar and use that.

Oh my gosh! That sounds absolutely delicious! I’ll have to try that tomorrow 🙂

This sounds really good. I have never bought vanilla beans before so not sure how expensive they are but would love to try this.
Yum, this looks and sounds so good. Keep those coffee recipes coming as I will be trying them all this winter when it is horribly cold outside and I want something warm and fuzzy to drink.

I love that this has lots of cinnamon in it, one of my best things to add to my drinks in the fall is cinnamon. Great coffee drink!

I love Cinnamon in my coffee, and this coffee looks so delicious and easy to make. I will have to make this for me and my son this week.
Robin Wilson says
This would make a great after dinner coffee for this cooler weather we’re having now!
Sounds yummy! Can I reused the cinnamon sticks?
