Coffee beans for Spiced Holiday Coffee

Ingredients

3/4 cup heavy or whipping cream
1-1/2 tablespoon confectioners' sugar
1 tablespoon brandy
1/2 cup freshly ground mild roast coffee
2-1/2 teaspoons ground cardamom
1-1/2 teaspoon sugar
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
5-1/2 cups cold water

Recipe Directions

With an electric mixer on medium-high speed, beat the cream in a medium bowl until it starts to mound softly, then beat in the confectioners' sugar and brandy. Continue beating until it is just firm. If not using it right away, cover the bowl of whipped cream with plastic wrap and refrigerate it. (The whipped cream can be prepared 1 day ahead.)

To brew the coffee, use a drip-style coffeepot (preferably an automatic drip coffeemaker) and line the filter cup with a paper filter. Put the coffee, cardamom, sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg in the filter. Mix gently with a spoon to combine the spices with the coffee. Add the water to the water chamber, and brew accordingly to the manufacturer's directions.

To serve, pour the coffee into 8 warm cups and garnish each cup with a generous dollop of the whipped cream. The cream will melt as it floats on top. Serve immediately.

Recipe Note

Dark-roast coffee won't taste as good with the spices in this recipe. Mild-roasted coffee (such as Columbian) works best.
