Ethiopian Coffee Blend

The perfect homemade gift for any cover lover. The flavors of cinnamon and cardamom liven up this coffee, especially enjoyable after dinner.


  • Prep Time : 5 min
  • Cook Time : 10 min
  • Ready Time : 15 min




  • 1/4 lb Yrgacheffe whole coffee beans (approximately 1 1/3 cup)
  • 22.5 grams cinnamon sticks
  • 8.75 grams cardamom pods (about 36 pods)


Toast the cinnamon sticks and cardamom pods in a 250 degree oven for about 10 minutes.  Let cool then grind with the whole Yrgacheffe beans, store in an airtight container until ready to use.

Brew as you would normally.  I prefer a French press and my method is 4 tablespoons of ground coffee with 8 ounces of water (just below boiling), let it sit 4 minutes then plunge and pour.

  1. I love the combination of cinnamon and coffee, but the addition of cardamom sounds even better!

    I love coffee and have been adding cinnamon for years and will definitely try adding cardamom…which by the way is a popular Persian spice and they also add it to their coffee. Can only be yummy!

    I LOVE Ethiopian coffee. Cardamom is great when brewed with coffee but I will have to try your combination. What a great way to start the day.

  4. Now all I need is a coffee grinder, this sounds amazing!
