how about coffees that have NO milk. There are those of us who like black coffee, not a lot of milk with a little coffee
Hi Barbara, you are right that many Winter coffee recipes in this list have milk added, although several have just a touch and it can be omitted altogether if preferred. Do you have a favorite black coffee recipe for the holidays? I do love a flavored cold brew when the weather is warm enough.
This looks so good! What a great list of options to make a treat for visitors!
Thanks for sharing! What a fun list to work through all winter!
