Are you a coffee drinker? My husband and I love our morning coffee! I drink two cups each morning, and my husband drinks it all day long as he works from home. He is my true “coffee hound”, in the truest sense of the word.

It seems like there are definitely two schools of thought regarding coffee. For us coffee lovers, there’s just no getting around it. We like our coffee, and we know how we like it!

COFFEE, COFFEE, COFFEE – The Great Debate!

One school of thought is “I LIKE MY COFFEE BLACK- DON’T YOU DARE PUT ANYTHING ELSE IN IT”! The other school of thought (which is mine) is “I LOVE COFFEE, BUT PLEASE PUT CREAMER, SUGAR OR OTHER STUFF IN IT SO IT DOESN”T TASTE LIKE COFFEE”. Amen.

Well… if you enjoy flavoring your coffee with creamers, etc. then today’s simple recipe for orange spiced coffee is just for you. I think it’s a great dessert-style coffee. A few easy additions to your coffee brewing routine, and you can enjoy a cup of this wonderful, citrus-flavored coffee! Here’s how to make 4 small servings!

Prepare To Brew The Orange Spiced Coffee

Place one third of a cup of ground coffee into a coffee filter. Add half a teaspoon of ground cinnamon and one eighth of a teaspoon of ground cloves to the coffee grounds.

If it’s not already in its spot yet, place the filter into its designated position in your coffee maker. Pour 3 cups of water into the well of your coffee maker, but do not turn the machine on yet!

Now it is time for the add-ins to go into the coffee pot BEFORE you brew the orange spiced coffee!

Add Mix Ins To The Coffee Pot Before Brewing

Before brewing the coffee, add 1/4 cup of orange marmalade and a rounded teaspoon of granulated sugar to the empty coffee pot. I know it seems weird to put JAM into the coffee pot, but trust me on this.

Once the coffee begins to brew, these two ingredients will dissolve and melt as the hot coffee covers them. This results in the rich orange flavor from the marmalade being infused into the coffee, which adds more flavor!

Brew The Coffee

When you’ve added the marmalade and sugar to the empty pot and have the coffee filter in place, turn on your machine and brew the coffee.

As the pot fills with hot spiced coffee, it will melt the marmalade and dissolve the granulated sugar, incorporating both into the brewed coffee.

As the coffee brews, the hot liquid melts the sugar and marmalade jam in the coffee pot.

Serving Orange Spiced Coffee

When the orange spiced coffee is finished brewing, it is wonderfully citrus flavored, and ready to serve. Give it a quick stir, then pour about 3/4 cup of coffee into each of the four small  mugs. At this point, taste the coffee. If you prefer sweeter coffee, now is the time to stir in additional sugar, to suit your taste.

My favorite way to enjoy this coffee is to add whipped cream and a little orange zest (finely grated peel) to top off each cup of coffee. It helps make the coffee look quite appetizing, and the dollop of whipped cream and orange zest make it even more delicious!

If you enjoy drinking your coffee black, simply leave off the whipped cream and orange zest garnish, and enjoy the coffee, as is. It still has wonderful citrus and spice flavors.
