Cinnamon Iced Coffee

March 11, 2014


Author Notes: I NEVER thought I'd become that that person who sniffs beans and talks about coffee like wine. Let's be real - I'm still not that person (...yet) but San Francisco has changed me and my feelings towards iced coffee. Inspired by Blue Bottle's New Orleans Iced Coffee and spurred by the ridiculous cost of a single cup, I decided to make it myself. The cinnamon syrup adds a nice twist of flavor - vanilla or cacao could easily be substituted to suite your taste.
