daily bliss: cinnamon scented coffee

Someone, somewhere, sometime told me that they add cinnamon to coffee grounds, creating a delicious brew without the artificial notes that perfume flavored beans.

Last week I finally tried this trick, and fell in love. The mingled scents of cinnamon and coffee wafted through the house, promising a luxurious brew. Today I used my French press for a particularly decadent caffeine fix.

This is the perfect winter beverage—warmth from the spice, energy from the caffeine, and an extra dose of kindness on cold, dreary days.
