Tips for Perfect Results

Perfectly balanced flavors that will awaken your senses.

As any experienced barista knows, making the perfect cup of coffee is not just about following a recipe. It requires a combination of skill, knowledge, and passion. Here are some tips to ensure that your Cinnamon Spiced Coffee comes out perfectly every time.

Tip #1: Use Fresh Coffee Beans

One thing that many people don’t realize is that the age of the coffee beans can affect the flavor of your coffee. Over time, coffee beans lose their freshness and become stale. If you want to get the best possible flavor from your Cinnamon Spiced Coffee, start with fresh coffee beans.

Tip #2: Grind Your Own Coffee Beans

Another way to ensure that your coffee is as fresh as possible is to grind your own coffee beans. When you grind coffee beans, you release the oils and flavors that give the coffee its unique taste. By grinding your own beans, you can ensure that those flavors are as rich and robust as possible.

Tip #3: Use a High-Quality Coffee Maker

If you want your Cinnamon Spiced Coffee to be truly amazing, it’s important to start with a high-quality coffee maker. Look for a machine that is well-made, durable, and easy to use. A good coffee maker will help ensure that the water is heated to the right temperature and will distribute it evenly over the coffee grounds.

Tip #4: Add Cinnamon Flavor Gradually

Adding too much cinnamon at once can overpower the other flavors in your coffee. Instead, add cinnamon gradually, tasting as you go until you achieve the perfect balance.

Tip #5: Experiment with Different Brewing Methods

There are many different ways to brew coffee, each of which can produce slightly different flavors. Experiment with different brewing methods such as drip coffee, pour-over or French press until you find one that produces the flavor profile you prefer.

With these tips in mind, you’re sure to make a delicious cup of Cinnamon Spiced Coffee that you and your customers will love. Be creative, experiment, and enjoy!


Before you start brewing the cinnamon-spiced coffee, it is important to be aware of some frequently asked questions so that you can avoid mistakes in the preparation process. Here are some of the most common questions and answers about making this flavored coffee.

Can you put cinnamon spice in coffee?

Enhance the flavor of your coffee by adding a sprinkle of cinnamon. It will naturally sweeten your drink without the need for any unhealthy additives. Whether you prefer to mix in a few spoons of the spice or drop in a cinnamon stick, both techniques will give your coffee a delicious sweetness.

How do you add cinnamon flavor to coffee?

To make your coffee more flavorful, try adding some ground cinnamon to the coffee filter before brewing. Be aware that the addition of cinnamon may result in a slightly weaker coffee, so you may need to add more coffee grounds to make it strong enough to your liking.

How do you add cinnamon to hot coffee?

One trick I recommend is to add cinnamon to the coffee filter before brewing. Just sprinkle the cinnamon on top of the coffee grounds and brew as you normally would. It may sound strange, but trust me, the cinnamon adds a delicious flavor without that pesky clumpy texture you sometimes get when adding it directly to hot liquid.

Do you add cinnamon to coffee before or after brewing?

For those searching for a way to merge the rich taste of coffee with the sweet notes of cinnamon, there’s one technique that reigns supreme. The key to blending the two flavors seamlessly is to add cinnamon to your coffee grounds before brewing, especially if you use a pour-over method or drip coffee machine at home.

How much cinnamon do I put in my coffee?

Adding cinnamon to your coffee not only enhances the flavor, but it also has health benefits. I suggest using ground cinnamon to get the most out of its nutrients. It is important to avoid using a lot of cinnamon. A small pinch or 1/4 of a teaspoon per cup is sufficient to achieve the perfect taste.

How do you infuse coffee with spices?

If you want to make a delicious spiced coffee, start by placing a small amount of spices at the bottom of the cup. Once that’s done, pour hot coffee over them so that the heat can release their flavors. If you’re making a milk coffee like a cappuccino, latte, or macchiato, it’s a good idea to sprinkle a bit of spice on the milk foam.

  • 1/3 cup ground coffee (*See note)
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon (*See note)
  • 3 tablespoons dark brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 6 cups cold water
  • Cool Whip, for garnishing coffee (optional)
  • ground cinnamon, for garnishing coffee (optional)


  • Place coffee and cinnamon in filter in brewing basket.
  • Carefully stir the coffee grounds and cinnamon.
  • Insert brewing basket to coffee maker.
  • To the coffee pot, add the brown sugar and vanilla extract.
  • To the coffee maker, add the cold water, then place in coffee maker.
  • Turn on your coffee maker.
  • When coffee is done brewing, stir coffee in coffee pot; to dissolve the brown sugar.
  • Serve coffee in cup or mug with a dollop of Cool Whip, and a sprinkle of cinnamon (if desired).
  • This makes: 6 and 3/4 cups of coffee.
  • Note: The first few times I made this coffee, I used Gevalia Hazelnut, and the second time I used Folgers French Vanilla (for variety). I did make this in an 8 cup coffee maker, which does end up making 9-(3/4 cups of coffee each).
  • Also, the first time I made this coffee, I only used 1/4 cup of the ground coffee, as I didn't want very strong coffee, and this still tasted great. I also only added 2 teaspoons of the vanilla extract. I found adding the extract helps to make this coffee taste a bit smoother, and even better.
  • By the way, some people may think the teaspoon of the cinnamon is a bit much, but not if you add milk to your coffee. I did make this once only adding 3/4 tsp of the cinnamon, but I've found I much prefer this recipe using one measuring teaspoonful.
