Cinnamon Coffee and a Cinnamon Hill Cinnamon Review and Giveaway


I am not a big coffee drinker but occasionally I enjoy a cup of really milky coffee with lots of froth on it. I have been experimenting with spice and I have discovered this amazing coffee flavour which has become a real firm favorite of mine.


Aromatic spicy cinnamon coffee perfect for warming up on a chilly winter day


Ingredients:


2 teaspoons instant coffee

2 teaspoons sugar (optional)
100 ml  milk
100 ml hot water
Pinch of freshly grated  Saigon Cinnamon


Method:


1. Boil the water

2. Place milk in a large mug and grate some fresh cinnamon in it.
3. Place the mug with the milk in the microwave for 2 minutes, making sure it does not boil over.
4. Get two serving coffee mugs and add 1 teaspoon coffee and 1 teaspoon sugar in each mug. 
5. Add the hot water to half fill the mugs, stir the coffee and sugar until they are dissolved.
6. Remove the milk from the microwave and froth it up with a milk frother or whisk.
7. Pour the frothy cinnamon milk onto the prepared coffee.
8. Grate a little bit more cinnamon on the top and serve immediately.




Cinnamon is the peeled bark of the cinnamon plant grown across Asia. There are many types of cinnamon but the two most highly prized types are Ceylon cinnamon which comes from Sri Lanka and Saigon cinnamon which comes from Vietnam. Supermarket cinnamon generally comes from Indonesia or China.Cinnamon is used in savory as well as sweet dishes. It is very aromatic and sweet smelling spice that is generally associated with baking, desserts and puddings. However in a lot of Asian recipes, cinnamon is used to add to curries and savory dishes. To get the best flavor from cinnamon it should be freshly grated as and when needed.As well as culinary uses, cinnamon has many health benefits including reducing blood-sugar levels and lowering bad cholesterol, and it is a good alternative sweetener, helping with weight control. 
Cinnamon has been used in Asian medicines for digestive ailments for centuries.
