A Savory customer submitted this recipe with this explanation: “I LOVE Cinnamon mocha coffee, but when I moved to a tiny town in Idaho running to Starbucks for morning coffee was out of the question. I adapted this recipe using cinnamon sticks instead of ground cinnamon which eliminated the gunk at the bottom of my cup which was always left no matter how well I strained it.”



This recipe was adapted from the blog Five Heart Home.


Bring water, sugar, cinnamon and salt to a boil. Turn heat down to a bubbling simmer; cook for 30 min. Remove from heat and let cool. Remove the cinnamon sticks and strain to remove any remaining debris (cinnamon is tree bark after all). Add vanilla and enjoy.

Serving Suggestions

Stir into your coffee, or pour over ice cream, oatmeal, or apple pie.


About 3 cups (1 cup of each flavor)

"I wanted to Thank You for the care that went into my last order. Everything was bagged and wrapped PERFECTLY. It really means a lot when I get a note thanking me for the business, and Nate- who wrote the note and I presume filled the order- did an OUTSTANDING job! I found you over 3 years ago while looking for specific spices for a Vodka recipe. I was so tired running from store to store looking for hard to find spices like Ras el Hanout, Fenugreek seeds, Berbere seasoning, or pomegranate molasses! Your fresh and potent spices, blends and waters make me look like a 'rock star chef' to my family- they THINK I know what I am doing! Thank you again for the choices you give to us and for a fabulous product!"
