Coffee becomes an important part of the Thanksgiving Day celebration as it helps to jump-start the day’s activities of cooking and socializing. It’s a great day to brew the ultimate cup of coffee that brings everyone to the table for camaraderie and the joy of the holiday season. Here’s a look at some ways to turn your coffee into a sweet, tasty delight.
Keeping the Coffee Flowing All Day Long
Thanksgiving is a long day of preparation and cooking, which means you’re putting your best effort forward. Do the same for your coffee by avoiding common brewing mistakes that can ruin its flavor. Take the time to clean and prepare your coffee maker, use the right amount of ground coffee, and use filtered water to eliminate impurities.
Thanksgiving Coffee Recipes
The flavors of fall are behind most Thanksgiving coffee recipes, and they’re sure to deliver comfort and pleasure. Here are some popular recipe ideas to serve your guests.
Pumpkin Spice Coffee
Add nutmeg, cinnamon and cloves with cream and/or milk to a cup of coffee to imitate the rich smoothness of pumpkin pie. You can make it even more pie-like by adding a teaspoon of pumpkin purée.
Maple Pecan Coffee
This preparation is more informal in that you add ingredients to taste. Begin with a cup of coffee and stir in a desired amount of maple syrup and cream, then stir. Finish off with whipped cream and garnish with chopped pecans.
Combine a half-cup of frothed milk with the desired amount of espresso or strong coffee, then add in gingerbread syrup or molasses and ginger to taste. Garnish with whipped cream and bits of gingerbread cookies.
Caramel Apple Coffee
Start with a cup of coffee brewed to taste, then add caramel syrup and a splash of apple cider. You can also add applesauce for a deeper flavor. Add a drizzle of caramel sauce on top of whipped cream for a buttery note.
