Wow, is this tasty coffee ever awesome. It was quick and easy to make with excellent results. I love cardamom so I knew that I would love this decadent treat; I now have a new favorite. I used a nice French Brandy in the recipe and added 8 cardamom pods. (personal preference only) Thank you for sharing this wonderful recipe JostLori; I will be enjoying this often. I made the whole batch just to get me threw this dark, wet, dreary day; thanks for bringing the sunshine with this recipe. Made and enjoyed for Seaside Brasserie 2020.
