Step 1: The Christmas Concoction
Start your holiday journey by immersing the coarsely ground “Christmas Blend” roast in hot filtered water. Use a French press or a pour-over method to ensure every granule of coffee is kissed by the warmth, releasing the heartwarming Christmas spices and the aroma of festive joy.
Step 2: The Spiced Infusion
Let the brew steep for 4 minutes, allowing the cinnamon, nutmeg, and clove notes to fully infuse into the water, creating a tapestry of Christmas flavors. This step is crucial to capture the essence of holiday spirit in every sip.
Step 3: The Creamy Embrace
In a small saucepan, gently warm the heavy cream, eggnog, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Whisk it together until it’s hot but not boiling. This creamy embrace will add a luxurious texture to your brew, reminding you of cozy Christmas mornings.
Step 4: The Union of Flavors
Pour the freshly brewed coffee into your favorite holiday mug. Slowly blend in the warm, spiced cream and eggnog mixture. Stir gently to marry the bold coffee with the creamy sweetness, creating a harmonious balance that sings of Christmas cheer.
Step 5: The Festive Topping
Top your creation with a generous dollop of whipped cream. Sprinkle a dash of ground cinnamon and nutmeg, and add a few shavings of dark chocolate for an indulgent finish.
Step 6: The Final Touch
Garnish your mug with a cinnamon stick, not just for aesthetics but to stir your brew, infusing each sip with a stronger essence of Christmas.
