Moroccan Spiced Coffee

I am so excited to be back with another installment of #CoffeeConnects. I will do anything for an excuse to drink more coffee - so here we are! This week we’re in Morocco, testing out the delicious Cafe Des Épices, or Moroccan Spiced Coffee.

This recipe could not be any simpler. Though usually made with a French press, you can use your preferred brewing method. Simply mix the spices into your coffee grounds and brew as usual! The spices used here are so comforting and warm, so I chose to bring that flavor full circle and use my favorite flavor oil - Black Coffee Market’s Vanilla. You get a little extra sweetness with no sugar (or calories) at all.

Black Coffee Market’s Flavor Oils are not only completely vegan, gluten/calorie/sugar free, but they’re also on sale right now! Snag your favorites for $9 each (usually $14!).

6 tbsp ground coffee (I use Black Coffee Market Blend º087)
½ tsp ground cinnamon
¼ tsp ground ginger
¼ tsp ground cardamom
⅛ tsp ground clove
⅛ tsp ground nutmeg
½ tsp sea salt
⅛ tsp ground black pepper
Vanilla Flavor Oil
4 cups water
Non-dairy milk and sweetener (optional)

  1. Combine the coffee grounds and spices in the bottom of a French press (or your preferred brewing method.
  2. Bring water to a boil (stovetop, kettle, however you prefer) then turn off the heat and let the water sit for about a minute.
  3. Pour half of the water into the French press off (with the lid/plunger off) and stir the grounds. Let spiced coffee grounds bloom for 30 seconds.
  4. Add the rest of the water, stir again and place the lid on the carafe, leaving the plunger all the way up. Let the spiced coffee brew for 3 minutes.
  5. Press the plunger all the way down and pour the coffee into 4 mugs. Enjoy the coffee black, or sweeten it/add non-dairy milk to your desire.
  6. Enjoy!
