Urban Recipes

By Christina Jeffrey

The aroma of fresh ground beans, the sound of the punch of steam from the espresso maker as you "surf" to reach the perfect temperature, which then turns into a shot of divine liquid java!

Looking for ways to jazz up your morning coffee? As the warmer temperatures approach pouring a shot over an iced glass of whole milk, nut milk or oat milk can be so delicious! These days making a special routine out of your morning cup of joe can be a very exciting part of the day. If you're anything like me you're falling asleep excited over tomorrow morning's coffee. My husband and I love coffee and have ordered beans from different coffee roasters all over North America. The preparation of that morning cup of goodness is equally important. So here's a way to jazz it up!  

This Spiced Iced Coffee with cinnamon, anise, cloves, and orange zest is so flavourful and full of great things for you. This is a very rich and enchanting coffee experience. Cinnamon has some amazing health benefits, full of antioxidants, and can lower blood pressure and your risk of heart disease.
