- 1/2 cup of whole coffee beans OR 6 tablespoons freshly ground coffee
- 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger

Instructions for making Moroccan spiced coffee
In the case of using whole beans:
Simply place your selection of Coffee Capsules Direct coffee beans in a grinder, add the spices and proceed to grind on the coarsest setting. Grind the mixture until you reach a rough texture that’s similar to breadcrumbs. Then, pour the spiced mixture into the bottom of a French press, or brew the spiced coffee using the brewing method of your choice i.e. an automatic drip pot.
In the case of using ground coffee:
In a small bowl, stir together the spices and your choice of coffee grounds from Coffee Capsules Direct. Pour the spiced mixture into the bottom of a French press or into your coffee machine. Alternatively, heat the water to around 100 degrees celcius in a stove-top or electric kettle, then let it rest for around 1 minute. Once the water is ready, pour about half of the water over the coffee and let it sit for 30 seconds. Then, by using a spoon, gently stir the mixture and add the rest of the water. If you’re using the French press, place the lid on and leave the plunger all the way up, then let it brew for 3 minutes. Once ready, pour the Moroccan spiced coffee into cups. Serve it black, or with sugar and cream as according to taste. Enjoy!
