This Moroccan spiced coffee recipe is well-suited for brewing in an automatic drip maker, stovetop Moka, or French coffee press. The aromatic spices add exotic flavor without overwhelming; for more pungency, add the optional ginger and black pepper.
If you don't have a coffee/spice grinder, substitute ground coffee and ground spices. Stir them together to mix.

- Place all ingredients into a coffee grinder and process. The spiced coffee is best used immediately. If you don't need all of it, store the spiced ground coffee in a light-proof, airtight container.
- Use the spiced ground coffee, one to two tablespoons per serving, to brew spiced coffee or espresso. (Note: The ground spices may clog the filter basket in electric espresso makers, so other brewing methods are preferred.)
- Serve the spiced coffee black, or with sugar and hot milk as desired.
