MOROCCAN SPICED COFFEE

It’s always a good idea to start your Monday morning with a nice cup of coffee. So why not make your mornings even better by spicing it up a notch? This Moroccan Spiced Coffee adds a unique and spicy kick to your daily cup of java!

Baby its cold outside, and I want, I mean I need, to escape to a warm and cozy place. A place where I can sit outside a small rustic café, sipping on my latte. Casually indulging in the beauty of the neighbourhood in a tight blue sundress and a fedora, reading my thriller novel and savouring my cherry Danish. Oh, wouldn’t that be lovely!

My reality: it’s snowing, and I’m sitting beside a window at Starbucks with a green tea latte and slow Wi-Fi, while pulling the sleeves of my sweater to keep my hands warm. The tuna wraps they have are pretty good though, so that’s an upside. Anyways, since I’m not currently enjoying this Moroccan spiced coffee at a lovely café in Morocco, I decided to bring the coffee and the café to my cozy apartment in Toronto!

I’ve always been more familiar with spiced teas, particularly chai or even turmeric spiced teas (also known as golden milk tea).  I actually started making turmeric spiced tea every week since the new year started simply to boost my immune system and also for the many health benefits it offers. However, since I’m currently showcasing a “Taste of the” world segment for the month, it made perfect sense to bring this unique and delightful recipe to my kitchen!

Moroccan spiced coffee is fragrant, flavourful, and moderately spicy. I find that the addition of the spices actually tones down the bitterness of the coffee beans, so if you drink your coffee black, you may find this spiced version quite smooth on your taste buds! Or you can add your favorite cream and sweetener. Oh and did I mention that the cream used in this recipe is homemade and dairy free? Cheers to spicy and fun Mondays!
