My coffee system doesn't allow for brewing a pot of coffee, so I resorted to the slow cooker method, forgoing the ground nutmeg as I used whole spices instead: cinnamon sticks, whole allspice, cardamom pods, star anise and a clove-studded orange. Left to simmer a while, the cider does become sweeter and more concentrated, so it's best to add brown sugar (if any is needed) before serving. Also, I've found that adding some brewed cinnamon-flavored tea helps dilute the cider should it become too sweet without having to add more cider. Great warming beverage, especially while taking breaks from raking leaves.
