A little spice for your morning coffee

December 8, 2011 |  6:00 am

CoffeeI'm not much of a flavored coffee guy, but for the holidays I'll make an exception -- at least when it comes to Groundwork's Winter Solstice Spice Blend. It's not actually flavored coffee, per se, but rather a ground combination of warm winter spices such as cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg, ginger and cardamom. You add a little bit (1/4 teaspoon per tablespoon of beans) to your Mr. Coffee in the morning and the whole world seems a lot more festive. And who wouldn't like that?

Winter Solstice Spice Blend, $6.95 per half-pound. Available at all Groundwork stores and on the website.
