This java creation is more like a sweet treat than an average cup of joe. It packs quite a caffeinated punch, so use decaf if you don't want a jolt.

Ingredients

Dark brown sugar

cup(s), packed lightly

Ground cinnamon

tsp(s), or to taste (or 1 cinnamon stick)

Black coffee

½ cup(s), grounds

Fat free evaporated milk

3 cup(s)

Vanilla extract

½ tsp(s)

Water

1 cup(s)

Instructions

  1. Bring water, sugar and cinnamon to a boil. Add coffee and turn down heat; simmer for 5 minutes.
  2. While coffee is simmering, heat evaporated milk in microwave on low or over a very low flame; do not let it boil.
  3. Strain coffee through a coffee filter. Add vanilla and heated milk; stir. Yields one cup per serving.
