Default Warm-me-up/Wake-me-up Coffee

Place in coffee filter:

6 tbsp coffee grounds
4 dashes cinnamon
2 dashes chili powder

Brew as usual; makes 6 cups.

This has a nice kick and really gets your blood flowing down to your toes! I just made this at 5 a.m. before my outdoor workout and it kept me SOOO WARM on this cool, damp morning. Enjoy!

Wow... sounds interesting, strange too

Courage doesn't always roar.
Sometimes courage is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying,
"I will try again tomorrow."

A pinch of cardamom is good too.

I love cinnamon in my coffee. I may try the tiniest pinch of cayenne power, but I don't think I want to try chili powder.

They put chili powder in hot chocolate as well. It's called "Mexican hot chocolate". The heat of the chili powder brings out the chocolate flavor. Probably the same thing goes for coffee.
