Easy Flavored Coffee: Drop a cinnamon stick—whole or broken in half—into your coffee filter with the ground coffee, then brew as usual.
Quick Caramel Cafe au Lait: Put a square of your favorite caramel-filled chocolate bar in the bottom of a coffee mug. Pour the hot coffee directly over the chocolate, then add warmed milk or cream and stir until the chocolate dissolves.
Vanilla Syrup: Heat vanilla bean pods, sugar and water in a saucepan until the mixture comes to a simmer. Let cool, then add to your favorite coffee or espresso drink!
