Shall we have a coffee?

By Tirria | Cocina de Colores | 21 Feb 2021

Good morning!! I am a great coffee lover. I have always liked the smell of fresh homemade coffee for as long as I can remember. Although my first direct contact with this infusion was quite late ... it was when I finished my studies and entered the job market that I immersed myself in this great world.
Throughout my life I have tasted thousands of types of coffee, with different breeds and origins and little by little I decided to try adding different touches with other plants. Currently I have a good pantry full of types of coffees and additives to add at all times.
Today I give you the recipe for one of my favorites. This mixture I usually take more in the time in which we are. Due to the temperatures and the rains in these months, it is the one that best enters and of course the one that I consider most beneficial.
In principle, the type of coffee is indifferent ... later I will dedicate a post to the different varieties of coffee that I usually consume, their origins and properties, but for this recipe the important thing is the additives
3 Cardamom Grains
1 Cayenne Chilli


½ teaspoon ground Nutmeg


½ teaspoon ground Cinnamon


I usually use an Italian coffee maker, which for coffee growers is usually the most practical option since it takes all the juice out of the ingredients and you get a powerful, strong and tasty coffee.
The first thing is to fill ¾ of the container with ground coffee. On top, distribute the Cardamom grains and the Cayenne in pieces. Then I add one more tablespoon of ground coffee and the ground Cinnamon and Nutmeg. Finally, I add ground coffee to complete the container.


When tasting it for the first time, the first thing you notice is the explosive mixture of flavors in the mouth ... it is not very intense but it is very pleasant. A few seconds later you feel the slight spicy touch that the cayenne gives it. And the best thing is the feeling of getting warm that leaves you for a few hours and that for this time of year, according to my point of view, feels great.
Apart from the flavors, the properties of these products are quite important ...
Cinnamon helps regulate the intestinal rhythm, reduces blood glucose levels, is digestive, and helps stimulate brain functions, among many other properties.
Nutmeg provides our body with numerous basic vitamins and minerals for its functioning. It is also antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, antibacterial and anticoagulant. It in turn helps control cholesterol. It also has anticancer, antianemic and purifying properties.
Cayenne favors cardiovascular activity, is vasodilator, anticancer and is beneficial in toothaches, headaches, or joint pain.
Cardamom, in addition to having excellent nutritional values, provides many vitamins to our body. It also has anti-cancer, liver and bone properties, which perfectly complete the intake of this powerful recipe for the body.
Now, let's enjoy a good coffee for this Sunday morning.
