Sugar and Spice and everything nice...a cup o' this Joe is just what the doctor ordered for a cold blustery day.
1/2 cup ground dark roast coffee
1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
5 cups water
1/4 cup firmly packed dark brown sugar
1/3 cup chocolate syrup
1 cup milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
sweetened whipped cream

Put coffee in coffee filter, add cinnamon and nutmeg, and brew. Combine brown sugar, chocolate syrup, and milk in heavy saucepan. Cook over low heat, stirring constantly, until sugar dissolves. Stir in coffee and vanilla. Serve immediately with a dollop of whipped cream. Sprinkle a little ground cinnamon over the top.
Yield: Over 6 cups

"Coffee played a big role in our life. The first thing you did in the morning was put on water, and the last thing you did at night was take off the pot."~Paul Prudhomme
