Strong coffee is flavored with cloves, cinnamon and chocolate, and served in mugs--topped with whipped cream.

  • Servings: 8


8 cups Water
⅓ cup Firmly Packed Brown Sugar
2 Whole Cloves
1 Cinnamon Stick, broken in half
8 oz Whipping Cream
1 oz Unsweetened Baking Chocolate, cut up
1 cup Ground Coffee
1 tsp Vanilla Extract


Pour water into a medium pan. Bring to a boil over medium heat. Stir in brown sugar, cloves and cinnamon stick. Reduce heat and simmer for 15 minutes. While mixture simmers, whip cream until it forms soft peaks. Hold in the refrigerator. Remove brown sugar-spice mixture from heat. Add chocolate and stir until melted. Add ground coffee and let stand for 5 minutes. Stir in vanilla. Strain mixture through a cheesecloth or a coffee filter. Serve at once in coffee mugs, garnished with the whipped cream.
