Have you ever made a pot of really good coffee and ended up with about a half-pot left over?
I hate throwing stuff out! Especially good coffee.
Right now I'm making my usual fall/winter coffee (instructions below)
But we all know what old warmed-up coffee tastes like.
But I have found a few ways to use up old coffee.
First, pour the remaining coffee in a pitcher and keep in refrigerator.
Method one: Hot coffee:
You will need a mug, water, instant coffee
Fill your mug half-full of water. Add enough cold leftover coffee to completely fill the mug. It should look watered down.
Pop in the microwave for 1 1/2 minutes and the add 1 to 1 1/2 spoonfuls of instant coffee.
Method two: Cold Coffee
You will need a mug, milk, sugar
Fill your mug half-full of milk and add enough cold coffee to completely fill the mug.
Add 1-2 teaspoons of sugar.
Fall/Winter Gourmet Coffee Recipe
You put the usual amount of grounds in the filter plus:
1 teaspoon of cinnamon (or you can use pumpkin pie spice)
1 teaspoon vanilla
Continue as usual
