  • Put the dandelion root, water, and cinnamon stick in a saucepan and bring it to a boil. Let it simmer for 7-15 minutes depending on how strong you want the coffee. 
  • Strain into cups and enjoy it warm! 
  • You can have the coffee black or add cream, milk, or any nut milk on your choice. If you want to add a natural sweetener, raw honey, or maple syrup work well. You can also add vanilla extract. 


You can add spices of your choice to enhance the flavor. Popular choices include nutmeg powder and fennel seeds.
