During college, I worked at Starbucks which meant when the holiday season rolled around my workdays were spent absorbing the fragrance of Starbuck’s Christmas blend.
Ever since then I knew I had to come up with something similar that I could easily brew myself to fill my home with the cozy smell of those good old college holidays.

Frequently Asked Questions
Can you use hot coffee to make this recipe an iced coffee?
Yes, I found this Christmas Coffee blend to be especially delicious as iced coffee with added creamer, and it even lasts 2 to 3 days stored in the refrigerator!
Once you’ve brewed the coffee just refrigerate it and pour it over ice whenever you’re ready for a cupful.
However, I don’t recommend preparing the spiced coffee in a cold brew pitcher because the spices are much finer than ground cold brew coffee and it could leave a residue.
Do I have to use regular coffee?
No, you can use decaf coffee or any ground coffee of your choice! While I recommend dark roast coffee for best results I do encourage you to use your favorite unflavored coffee as a base to build off of!
What if I don’t have a French press?
That’s ok! This recipe doesn’t require one as it can be made in any coffee maker that uses a filter.
How can I make this recipe with a Keurig?
Make the recipe as you normally would, then just portion it out to be used in reusable k-cup filters, storing the leftover ground coffee mix in a canister until you’re ready for your next cup!
