1 tbsp cocoa powder
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
4 shots (3 tbsp per shot) coffee liqueur

Santa’s Strong Irish CoffeeIngredients:
1 cup Exclusive full-bodied roasted coffee
1 tbsp brown sugar
1 shot (3 tbsp) Irish whiskey
Heavy cream, slightly whipped
For individual servings: Pour fresh brewed coffee into a pre-warmed, heat resistant glass to 3/4 full. Add brown sugar and stir until dissolved. Add Irish whiskey. Top with cream and serve immediately while hot.
Orange Decaf NoelIngredients:
1 shot (3 tbsp) almond liqueur
1 shot orange liqueur
Fresh-brewed Exclusive Decaffeinated full-bodied coffee
1 cinnamon stick
For individual servings: Pour almond liqueur into a heat resistant glass, or mug. Add coffee, top with whipped cream. Trickle shot of orange liqueur over cream and serve with a cinnamon stick.
Tip By Tchibo: Hard water affects the flavour of coffee, so it should boil well before use in all methods of brewing. Coffee connoisseurs make sure, however, that the water remains below boiling point once brewing begins. Serve coffee within 30 minutes for optimal taste.
