One of our favorite beverages is coffee. Always has been and probably always will be.

We have a handful of coffee drink recipes on the site already; like our iced white chocolate mocha or our butterscotch coffee.

For today, we’re sharing a wonderful coffee drink for Fall. It’s our simple cinnamon coffee.

Unlike other recipes that simply direct you to dump ground cinnamon into a coffee mug, we actual brew the coffee and cinnamon together.

It seems to create a smoother flavor with hints of cinnamon; instead of a mouthful of spicy coffee.

The recipe is easy to follow and creates a warm, comforting drink that will kickstart your day. Let’s get started!

How do you make cinnamon coffee?

Scroll to the recipe card below for ingredient amounts and the full instructions.

  1. Prep the coffee itself. Grab your coffee maker and filter.
  2. Pour 8-cups of water into the machine, and add 1-cup of ground coffee to a coffee filter.
  3. Add some ground cinnamon then start the brewing process.

  2. Pour some heavy cream (or dairy of your choice) into the mugs.
  3. Add some brown sugar then top off with the freshly brewed coffee. Stir and enjoy!

Recipe Tips

  • If you want your drink to look and taste like ours, then consider adding some extra toppings; like our bourbon whipped cream.
  • Use your favorite brand and variety of coffee.
  • We love the taste of brown sugar in cinnamon coffee, but any sweetener works!
  • Use your favorite dairy or non-dairy creamer.

How much cinnamon should I put in my coffee?

That depends on your taste buds. I recommend starting with an ⅛-teaspoon of ground cinnamon per 8-ounce serving.

Taste test the brewed coffee and increase the amount as needed.

Can I put cinnamon powder in my coffee?

I wouldn’t recommend it! Not unless you enjoy, “burning,” your mouth, taste buds, and nasal cavities. It doesn’t dissolve well and is potent when added directly to coffee.

How do I dissolve cinnamon in coffee?

The best method to avoid ground cinnamon in your coffee is to brew it with the ground coffee granules. That way, the spice is heated and then filtered just like the coffee.
