One think I like to do is add freshly grated nutmeg, or freshly crushed cinnamon or cloves to the grounds before I brew. Cardamon fits with those, too. Vanilla bean is also nice. So are coco powder and a red chili or cayanne; I love the hints of spice and chocolate. Cinnamon and white peppercorns is another fav combo. That's a nice way to spice up beans that you already have. My favorite "base" coffee is the Half Caf from Grounds for Change.

I like to get coffee from Grounds for Change. They're fair trade, low carbon, organic, etc. They have a coffee of the month club that's nice for monthly surprises that help you avoid a rut:

My two all-time favorite blends are from Jamaica... Blue Mountain French Vanilla Caramel Flavored Coffee Blend (http://www.bluemountaincoffee.com/index.cfm?method=Products_ProductDetail&id=1008) and Blue Mountain Chocolate Caramel Flavored Blue Mountain Coffee Blend (http://www.bluemountaincoffee.com/index.cfm?method=Products_ProductDetail&id=1000). They are pricey --- $16/pound plus shipping --- but absolutely heavenly.

I also love Ethiopian coffee. I especially love Ethiopian coffee ceremonies. If there is an Ethiopian restaurant near you, call them to ask if they roast their own Yirgacheffe and if you can buy some. Also ask if the offer coffee service with the ceremony. They burn frankincense and myrrh resin as they roast the coffee in front of you. My husband and I are West African, but we LOVE everything about Ethiopian coffee. Ethiopian coffee is great with a bit of butter (goat if you can find it) and honey added to the brew. We like Ethiopian coffee with popcorn and nuts.

Here's a basic recipe for Vietnamese coffee. It's sooo yummy. I love the combo of coffee and sweetened condensed milk.

The first time I had coffee with butter was at an Ethiopian restaurant when I was in college. The tarter the butter, the better. That's why goat milk butter is preferable. You just need a touch. And it helps to add honey. You definitely want to do it with a strong brew of a full-bodied Ethiopian coffee.
Here's a recipe for kahawa, another Ethiopian coffee drink.
