"What a wonderful change from regular coffee. Had a subtle hint of the ginger along with the orange and cinnamon. The only change I would make is to cut down on the water amount a bit or increase the ground coffee. It was very light in color and a little too weak for me and I do not like strong coffee. Definitely try it!"

"I'm a huge coffee fan, but I must admit, the mixture of orange, ginger, and cinnamon made me wonder about the end result.

I used a dark roast coffee, and was pleased that I could taste each flavor, and none of the ingredients overpowered the others."

"This recipe was just what I needed for this cold -20 F Wisconsin morning! Instead of grating the orange, I carefully used a potato peeler and then julienned the strips. This process may have produced a lesser orange flavor. Miss Carol, I would experiment with grated or julienned ginger root instead of crystalized ginger. I always keep a peeled ginger root wrapped securely in the freezer for quick addition to any recipe. It stays fresh and ready to use."

"Sorry, this isn't a review either, but do you have to use candied or crystallized ginger instead of the regular ginger?"

"Sorry - this isn't a review, although I'd love to give this a try. No, it's just to comment that you can usually find "candied" ginger in the bulk food section of your super market - at least that's where it is here in Toronto."
