This cinnamon coffee is so warming, and it tastes like fall the holidays in a cup. The great part about this tasty drink is that it's super easy to make, and it's also way cheaper than what you would pay to buy one at a coffee spot.

Recipe developer Jaime Bachtell-Shelbert of Wholly Nourished came up with this yummy recipe that is sure to be a new favorite. "I love how a little bit of cinnamon added to coffee grounds is a simple way to level up your coffee. It's perfect for the holiday season as well," Bachtell-Shelbert says.

Gather the ingredients

Once you are ready to begin, make a list of items you will need to get at the store. If you make coffee at home already, you may have a few of these things at home, so be sure to check. First, grab some coffee grounds. You can use whatever your typical go-to brand is. It's no secret that the recipe also calls for a few tablespoons of ground cinnamon. And of course, you'll need water.

There are a few optional ingredients for toppings, including whipped cream, cream, and more cinnamon for serving.

Place the coffee and cinnamon in the filter

Now that you have all of the ingredients in front of you, it's time to get things started. This recipe won't take more than five minutes to make, so it's super easy and efficient. First, grab your coffee grounds and the cinnamon. Place both of those ingredients into the filter of a coffee maker or a pourover — you can use whichever method you'd prefer.

Once you have the coffee grounds and the cinnamon set, it's time to move on to the next step. Is it just us, or do you already feel like a barista in training?

Heat the water

The next step is to grab your water and place it in the reservoir of a coffee maker. If you don't have a coffee maker or want to do it a different way, you can simply heat the water in a kettle for the pourover. There are plenty of ways to get the water warm enough, so if you have another method that is not listed here, by all means — please use it! We're halfway through the process already. We told you it would be easy! 

Brew the coffee

Now, you will just need to brew the coffee using your preferred method of choice. Please note that there are a few different ways to do this. You can certainly do it the old-fashioned way, or you can do the pourover method, which has become really popular as of late. Bachtell-Shelbert also says that if you have a Keurig, you could also use that, which keeps things super simple! "This would also work in a Keurig if you use the small brew basket for grounds," Bachtell-Shelbert shares. Once you take this step, you can finally get ready to enjoy.

Serve and enjoy

Now, your coffee should be good to go, and it should smell like a coffee shop in your home. Pour the finished cinnamon coffee into four different mugs for you and any lucky friends. Then, you can dress the coffee up with cream, whipped cream, and even some extra cinnamon if you would like. It may be cute and festive to add a little cookie or biscotti in the coffee or on the side.

According to Bachtell-Shelbert, you can also make it a latte. "Yes, you could definitely steam some milk to add to this!" she says. Alternatively, you could serve it over ice. "If you pour over ice, I suggest brewing a stronger coffee since the ice will melt and water it down. Or you could refrigerate it later to use for iced coffee," Bachtell-Shelbert says.

Cheers to another great recipe!
