I blame my husband for my complete infatuation with the stuff now. During the past month, while I prepared to embark on my Whole30 journey, I struggled with reconciling no sugar and no dairy in my morning cup of joe.
My first cup of black coffee was had yesterday. Another true story? I didn't hate it!
There was a number of little things I did to make the experience a better one.
First, I added 2 scoops of medium roast beans to my burr grinder, set to a medium grind.
Second, I added the ground coffee to my Aeropress (which I highly recommend, btw) and added one tsp of ground cinnamon to the grounds.
Third, the temperature of the water was barely boiling - so probably around 200F/94C - before I poured it over the grounds. I used about 10 fluid oz.
This was the result:
Hope this helps you kill your sugar demon!
