Wonderful! I had it without sweetener because I don't like sweetened coffee, and the flavors were delicious. Thanks for posting this!! Made for Comfort Cafe January 2010.

this is heaven in a cup! I love the taste of the fennel in here. I made mine with Splenda Brown sugar blend and added a bit more than 1 tsp. Since I prefer my coffee with cream, I do add a splash of half and half. Definitely a keeper in my house! Thanks for sharing!

This is delicious! I love the fennel flavor with the cinnamon. I sweetened mine with a little honey. By using the French press pot, I didn't have to strain anything out. Thanks for a great cup of morning coffee! Made for Comfort Cafe Summer 2009.

Note: I made a double recipe in a 4 cup drip pot (makes 2 mugs), so the method may have affected the result. The fennel and brown sugar add nice notes but the cinnamon is TOO STRONG. I've got that semi-numb feeling on my tongue that you get if you chew on the cinnamon stick but without the pleasant fire of eating an atomic fireball jawbreaker or a handful of Red Hot candies.

This was a taste experience. I loved it. The flavor created by the fennel and cinnamon is delicious, light, spicy and warm. I added extra brown sugar and some 1% milk, which I strained away at the end of the simmering time, resulting in a deep, dark, golden, spicy, sweet coffee. I will make this again and again. Thanks for sharing.

I made this without the fennel seeds and added a tbsp of OJ. This was really delicious, and I loved that it was low cal/low fat. Made for Zaar 123 (4) Hit wonders tag.

Simply delicious. I'll admit to using anise seed in place of the fennel because it's what I had and I strained the seed out before pouring it into my cup. I added 1/2 tsp of Splenda Brown sugar but found that I wanted it a bit sweeter. I kept the 2 cinnamon sticks in the cup though :D. It was pure delight.

Yummy Yummy Yummy! I made this coffee this morning after seeing the kids off to school! What a treat for my Monday morning! I did use your suggestion and used a tbls of orange juice and I absolultely LOVED this coffee! I used honey too for the sweetener and it just was a smooth tasting coffee. Wanted to say I used the coffee I already had brewed too - perfect! Thanks for sharing. So glad I tagged this in 1.2.3 Hit Wonders.

I tired your suggestion & left out the fennel seeds (didn't have any) & added 1 tbsp of orange juice. The result was very tasty. Thanks for a great recipe. Made for 123 HITS
