Bryan, I like to add cinnamon to my coffee grounds, too. In fact, I have a pot brewing right now. I've added other spices like allspice or nutmeg or apple pie spice...also vanilla extract.

I like my coffee any way I can get it.

Here in Canada there is a chocolate bar called Coffee Crisp and the commercial used to ask "How do you like YOUR coffee?" And the answer was "CRISP!" Cute, great chocolate bars too.

Nutmeg sounds good. I remember one morning when I had family over and we had been up "talking" fairly late.The following morning my brother made the coffee. It was good but spicy. I asked him what he had done and he said 'made the coffee'. I went into the kitchen and noticed he had used the coffee grinder I used for grinding spices and the coffeee had picked up on some peppers we had ground the day before. It was strange but it was still coffee.

I just bought some pure vanilla powder, maybe I will brew up some coffee with vanilla and drink it iced.

Bryan, you sound like my sister. Let's see if I can get this right - her order at Starbucks:
"Grande caramel macchiatto, 7 pumps of vanilla, no make it 9"

(she's quite the opposite of me! If I'm going to have sugar with my coffee, it will be inside a brownie!)

Coffee is one of the few things I really just can't stand. It even smells awful to me. And I don't want it in my chocolate, milkshake, or alcohol either.
Thing being, drinking coffee is a social grace of sorts, and I have really tried to develope a taste for it.

I'm just weird, I guess.
