My roomie read to me the healing powers of Cayenne. She told me how it increases the immune system, it gets your blood circulating... and I think she said it cures everything. Maybe not that much. But that's the way I took it.
I started adding Cayenne to everything I was cooking. Eventually this home remedy became something I just loved. I'm by no means a person who will pick "hot" anything, but this is all starting to shift because of my new found addiction.
Naturally I began wondering if there was a way to add Cayenne to my Coffee and have it taste good. I did some research online and found a recipe that sounded good and the person who posted it was talking about how it's an amazing way to have coffee. This morning I combined coffee, cayenne, cinnamon and nutmeg all together... following the directions perfectly. I waiting four minutes for my coffee to brew and poured myself a cup.
It was TERRIBLE. It was like drinking liquid Cayenne and nothing else. No other flavors survived. I took two or three sips before I gave up. I'm not totally discourage. I KNOW I need less cayenne, and I'm thinking of using a darker roast, possibly an Asian/Pacific coffee. Something with earthy tones. I used a medium blend that tasted more in the realm of South America which doesn't tend to go well with spices anyways.
I have a plan-- but let's see what happens. Hopefully I'll figure out a good combo... and then I'll share it with you all to use!
