Raktajino Recipe

Raktajino Recipe

It should come as no surprise that we have some Trekkies here at Delta-V Coffee.  We've been playing around with recipes for Raktajino (for the non-Trekkies out there, Raktajino is Klingon Coffee).  We came up with a simple one that we thought we'd share with everyone!

Ingredients:

  • Coffee - (Our Saturn V coffee works well for this and gives the extra caffeine kick you expect from Klingon Coffee)
  • 1 tsp of Apple Pie Spice - (we've been using McCormick Apple Pie Spice, but use your favorite as long as it has cinnamon, nutmeg, and allspice)
  • Dash of ground cloves
  • 1 packet of dark chocolate hot cocoa mix
  • 1 cinnamon stick

Directions:

  1. Add your coffee grounds to your filter as you normally would to make coffee
  2. Add the apple pie spice and ground cloves on top of the coffee grounds
  3. Brew the coffee!
  4. Combine freshly brewed spiced coffee with the packet of dark chocolate hot cocoa mix.
  5. Using the cinnamon stick, mix the coffee.
  6. Enjoy!

For a creamier version of Raktajino try adding some powdered milk to the mix.  If you know of a better recipe or if you come up with a better variation of this recipe, let us know!
