What are some good ways to spice up your coffee?
A friend of mine used to always spice his up with some ground cardamom in the press, another gave me a tip to toss a bag of chai in there. And there's mocha of course.
Irish coffee is a thing, never tried that. Did put rum in coffee once though, not a success, tasted exactly like a hobo smells like. Unwashed piss and dirt. Might just have been the rum though.

Anybody know other good things to put in your coffee?

Raw or roasted? Powdered?
Might try one but I'm not trying them all.

A twist of lemon is actually really delicious in a straight shot of espresso

Huh. Coffee is pretty oily already and a twist of lemon adds aroma and oils to cocktails so maybe it's a decent idea. I would say to not actually toss the twist in there and just express the oils, but yeah. Sounds feasible.

It was Alton Brown's recommendation from his espresso episode of Good Eats. And you are correct in that you do not toss the lemon in but simply squeeze some juice.

i like to pour a shot (or two) of espresso over ice, then add Mexican coke from a glass bottle to the top. Tasty and energizing.

Instead of sugar use a bit of maple syrup
Some stores also sell coffee syrup. I usually get hold of hazelnut infused syrup to add to my afternoon coffee. Goes great with a nice donut or very dark chocolate.

Rum does come in many, many varieties, so don't discount it yet. Most cheap rums are for mixing drinks only, however the more expensive, sweet rums are great. Main rule is, if you can drink the rum pure, you canadd it to coffee, if not, it's for cocktais.

Captain Morgan, for example, is one of the latter.

Tbh thinking back I think maybe it was more the coffee actually, was an especially musty dark roast. The rum was good enough for sipping in my book, pic related (actually even got tipped about it here on /hooch/).
Also didn't have any milk in the coffee, dunno if it fits better like that or if black goes well.

Plantation rum is very recommended as an addtion to coffee and for sipping... It especially goes well with a nice, freshly ground, dark coffee.

I prefer black coffee myself... milk just removes most of that nice roasty coffee taste for me

cardamom is good, chai is a bit overkill. as for adding booze, I find bourbon and brandy work best, though when I do that I usually also add sugar, cream, or both. IMO the best way to change up coffee is to change up the brewing method, as each lends different characteristics to the drink

Idk if anyone has said this already, but putting some cinnamon or nutmeg or both in the grounds before brewing is my favorite way to spice up my coffee

I once made and drank instant coffee with boiled vinegar

Apparently my roommate left it like that to clean the thing and forgot to tell me. I tasted kinda weird but I just figured I put too much coffee in it.

Yeah I really need this. Coffee doesn’t work on me anymore so I’ve taken to energy drinks, but it’s too expensive of a habit and not nearly as fun as my other vices.

I like to pair coffee. don't put shit in it. you can eat gingerbread or something similar with spicy coffee. eat citrus stuff with lemony coffee. Or chocolate with the dark and earthy ones.

this way you can also drink your coffee black, and enjoy your calories in a tasty treat and enjoy the contrast of flavor

I started adding cream to it and now I'm addicted

And I figured out that you can froth cream instead of milk (or alongside it), it works perfectly.

I have a coffee with 3 espresso shots and cream at the start of every day, at around 6am. I have no more coffee for the rest of the day - unless I have a decaf or something. I crash around 3-4pm or something but I like it this way, I get a bit of high in the morning and its quite clean, so to speak.

I didnt quite like just cream in coffee when I tried it, but what I do like is when you have left over whipped cream from a dessert or something, put a spoonful to float on top and it slowly melts into a soft layer on top to drink the coffee through.
