The sterotypical image of a cop is one who eats donuts and drinks coffee while on duty. How the image became the stereotype no one knows but there it is. While our police force may enjoy a donut or two and drink some coffee that is by no means all that our law enforcement officers do.
It is no wonder though that they are constantly drinking coffee. It is hard work to keep crime at bay. They need to be alert at all times. They can’t afford to be tired or sleepy even on the most routine and humdrum of days. As well we know that is a particular gift of coffee – to stimulate the brain and keep drowsiness away.
Since our friendly neighborhood regular policemen aren’t exactly the highest paid members of society, so they don’t exactly get the best coffee with every cup. Let’s face it, a cup of your favorite starbucks brew is expensive. So here is a simple brew that they can make when they are back in their precinct.
This is a really easy way to change the taste of your regular brew. Just add a tablespoon of cinnamon to the coffee grounds before brewing a fresh pot. When it’s ready, just add some brown sugar to your cup of joe to suit your taste.
If the coffee was already made before you arrived just put some cinamon sticks in your cup. Let it dissolve and then add some brown sugar to sweeten it as you like.
