A semi-perfect cup of coffee - my recipe using instant coffee

I thought I'd share my personal coffee mixture today. It can really hit the spot, and you don't have to make a whole pot of coffee to have it. It uses instant coffee as its base.

Of course, a really ideal cup of coffee may well be some delicious variety of Fair Trade Coffee that you grind yourself, and place into your electric coffeemaker... but I digress.

My Coffee Recipe Ingredients: 

100% Columbian Trader Joe's Instant Coffee - 1 tsp to 1 tbsp. (to taste) Of course, you can use your personal favorite here too.
Spreadable or pourable honey - around 1/2 tsp. or more if you have a sweet tooth.
Several shakes of Stevia extract (natural sweetener)
1 tsp. of pure vanilla (or more, to taste)
1/2 tsp. of cocoa or carob (optional)
milk or cream to taste

I usually heat up the water first (filtered water is the best option) and then add all the ingredients. Then back to the microwave my coffee goes until it's nice and hot.

There you have it. I hope you like it! I am still experimenting with this recipe, but so far I like it. I think maybe a teensy bit of cinnamon might be a fun thing to try with it too.

What is YOUR favorite cup of coffee recipe? You can share it below, or leave a comment. Thanks!
