Rated 4 out of 5 by WhatsShaken from Perfect for a snowy day! My girlfriend and I both LOVE everything sweet. This hits home perfectly for us. That said, even for us, it is SWEET. Perfect for her, a little too cloying for me. However, the heat from the cinnamon, and the warm molasses notes from the sugar are a perfect pair. I used 28g of fresh ground coffee from the shop next door to my apartment. NOTE: I subbed in Demerara sugar. Not sure if it changes the original too much.
