re: Coffee, new and improved

Add to the pot in which you brew your coffee:

-1 Cardamom pod
-1 tsp cinnamon
-1 tsp ground ginger
-a few grains of salt

...all of these help make coffee easier on the body by balancing its acidity (which greatly reduces the damage it can do, over long period, to the lining of the stomach and small intestine).

It also tastes really, REALLY delicious.

Cinnamon and a dash of salt, along with some vanilla, do wonders for hot cocoa as well!

I love a little cardamom in cocoa too, as well as a small dash of cayenne!

Hi. My name is Mike and I am a coffeeholic. I must try the cardomon thing.

I hear rumor that a little salt (like a few grains) is supposed to improve chocolate milk

Oooh, definitely gonna pick up some cardamom next time I go grocery shopping.
I do like cinnamon in my drink and I like chai, but never thought about adding cardamom to coffee!
