The Texas Pecan Coffee ran out this morning, so I rummaged through the back of my freezer* for the back-up Dunkin' Donuts coffee beans. Dunkin' Donuts makes fabulous coffee for a simple brewed cup, but they don't stay fresh for long. The result is bitter. And how does one combat dry, bitter coffee beans without running over to the local grocery store? Add a teaspoon of cinnamon to ground coffee in filter before brewing. This worked like a charm. I also added warm almond milk for an extra special cafe au lait. Highliy recommend.
*I store all of my coffee beans in the freezer to keep it fresh for as long as possible.
