Four Ways To Jazz Up Your Office Coffee

Even if your office's coffee is delicious, drinking the same beverage day in and day out can get a little boring. Spice up your coffee routine by adding a few of your ingredients to your morning cup. Here are a few ideas to get you started.

Cinnamon Mocha Coffee

To make this tasty coffee treat, all you need is a little ground cinnamon and some hot cocoa mix. Keep these ingredients in your desk drawer, and you can make a cinnamon mocha coffee whenever you please. Just stir 2 tablespoons of hot cocoa mix and 2 small pinches of cinnamon into an average-sized cup of coffee. Add milk or cream and sugar to taste, and enjoy.

Chocolate Peppermint Coffee

This beverage is delicious during the holiday season. Once your coworkers smell the minty deliciousness over the cubicle walls, you might have to share, so be prepared with a few extra chocolate-covered peppermints. To make your beverage, simply drop one or two small, chocolate-covered peppermint candies into your mug, and stir until they melt. Make sure the coffee is piping hot so that the chocolate blends completely with the coffee.

Mock Latte

If your office coffee is too strong for your taste, tone it down by making a mock latte. A traditional latte is made with espresso and steamed milk. You can get a similar flavor and consistency by heating 1/2 cup milk in a mug in the microwave, and then filling the mug the rest of the way with coffee. Add a little cream if you prefer. Lattes are not typically sweetened with sugar, but there's no need to follow strict rules here -- add sugar if you prefer it.

Mock Caramel Cappuccino

Another good use for coffee that you find too strong, this treat can be created with cream and caramel sauce that you keep in the break room refrigerator. Write your name on it so coworkers are tempted to help themselves. Stir 3 tablespoons of cream, 2 teaspoons of sugar and 2 tablespoons of caramel sauce into an average-sized cup of coffee to create a sweet, dessert-like coffee beverage that mimics a caramel cappuccino.

There's no need to drink cup after cup of coffee that you're not enjoying. Whether you just need a break from your standard coffee routine or are looking for a way to tone down coffee you don't particularly enjoy, sprucing it up with a few simple additions takes only a few seconds and results in a beverage that will soothe your soul and inspire your mind as you work.
