Ever since I stopped drinking caffeine and artificial sugars I haven't been able to indulge in my flavored coffees. I stumbled across this recipe the other day and today I decided to give it a go with some Sanka. Currently I have the largest smile across my lips and a cup of the Café Vienna sitting in front of me in all of its lovely caffeine freeness with real sugar. It tastes amazing! Thank you for posting this recipe!
Great recipe but instead of grinding it, put coffee in a resealable plastic bag, seal and roll with a rolling pin. Works great and nothing to clean! Add remaining ingredients to the bag, mix, cut a hole in one corner to neatly pour into container. I also double the amount of coffee listed to suit my taste.

I love this recipe. I make my own flavors also and use Splenda instead. You can't even tell the difference. I grind everything up in a mini processer to make it really fine like the real thing. I give this out at Christmas now and everyone loves it.
What a great recipe to personalize. I really like GFIC, but the price and the amount of sugar keep me from buying very often. Now I can make my own with decaf coffee and Splenda sweetener, plus create new flavors. A little cinnamon, rum extract, and butter flavoring (liquids from the candy making section- just mix well into granulated sugar) and I have my own winter Eggnog blend.
