Easy Mint Café au Lait with Landmark Coffee

I used to own a fancy espresso machine, but now I'm content to make good, strong coffee with my one-cup brewer and play around with some quality mix ins.  I don't need a foamer, frothers, or whatnot.  I just need a very good coffee bean to start with.

Landmark Coffee is just that coffee.  I sampled some whole beans from the company for my Easy Mint
Café au Lait.  It takes just a few ingredients, and 4 minutes for this rich, delicious treat!

You will need:
  • Landmark Coffee whole beans (finely ground) and brewed to a 6 oz. cup of strong coffee
  • 1/8 cup half and half
  • 1 tablespoon white sugar
  • 2 drops pure mint extract (this will have alcohol in it, but you won't use enough to matter)
Simply brew the coffee into the half and half mixed with sugar and mint extract.  That's all there is to it!  It's a fresh-tasting treat for after dinner or with a chocolaty dessert.  The extra boldness of the Landmark Coffee really compliments the mint.  (Note: You can choose to warm the half and half, but if you use a single-cup brewer with a refillable pod, you will find that the coffee should be hot enough to compensate.  I use mine on the size 2 setting.)

Here's a little more about the coffee I used in my recipe (now available at Walmart):
Landmark Coffee is a family-run gourmet coffee company with over 50 years experience. Their mission is to sell the highest quality coffees at the lowest possible prices. The coffees they select are from the world’s finest Arabica beans, and each order is smallbatch roasted. The price is $14.78 for 2 pounds. 

I really do like a robust coffee, but I like a lighter roast.  This meets my standards and really works well in the one-cup brewer.  (Some coffees seem weak when prepared this way, but the key is to grind the Landmark Coffee very finely.)

What mix-ins do you like for your coffee?  How would you prepare this roast in your home?
