Coffee - Modified 'Nityananda Spices' w Coconut Cream
So, I tried (and succeeded!) going cold turkey from coffee for about 10 days. There was some protesting, but it wasn't too hard. Now, I am having one a day, and not every day. The method I have been trying at home is very tasty, so I've decided to blog about this simple concoction. It is a modification of a recipe that Kit Laughlin shared with me - the Nityananda herbs (spices).
Shown are the 3 herbs (spices) of the blend: Cinnamon; Cardamon & Nutmeg. Also shown is a great little grinder I inherited from Kit (thanks man!). I haven't actually be grinding beans for the last few coffees, as I have some cheap packet coffee I am using up.
So, I pack 3 and a half scoops of coffee into the coffee-pot (in respect to the 3 and half times the kundalini is coiled at the base of the spine, of course..).
Post ~15 second extraction (shown as title picture), I add some coconut cream. Shown is the brand I found in the cupboard this time.. I think the best one I ever did used the Aroy-D brand of coconut milk/cream.
On top of the this brew, you add the three herbs. Largest portion cinnamon; next largest is nutmeg - and a sprinkle of cardamon (change up for your preference).
Done. I made one that looked much prettier (and was delicious) but didn't get a picture. The above one was still far better than many I have paid for that used highly expensive coffee machines, so goes to show you can make great coffee with low-tech equipment.
Thanks to Kit for sharing the secret 'erbs with me; and to Tanya, who I believe suggested coconut cream to me in my coffee. :)
