Cinnamon Vanilla Coffee Milk Shake

Thank you Hamilton Beach for providing me a FlexBrew 2-Way Coffee Maker to test. All opinions are my own. 

I love cinnamon and I love vanilla. These are two of my favorite ingredients to use in most of my sweet treat simple recipes. Since Hamilton Beach was nice enough to send me a FlexBrew 2-Way Coffee Maker to test and review I thought I would make a Cinnamon Vanilla Coffee Milk Shake. I knew that this would be the perfect simple recipe to use to test their FlexBrew 2-Way Coffee Maker.

Cinnamon Vanilla Coffee Milk Shake

Before I begin with how I made this amazing and simple recipe I want to tell you all about the Hamilton Beach FlexBrew 2-Way Coffee Maker. I have things I love about it and things I wish they could change about it.

Brew 2 Ways

The Hamilton Beach FlexBrew 2- Way Coffee Maker allows you to brew your coffee by the cup or by the pot! I love this option. During the holidays we have company and it is so much easier to brew an entire pot of coffee instead of brewing one cup at a time. The option to brew one cup at a time is great when my husband only needs one cup before he walks out of the door for work. One unit that brews 2 different ways is terrific and in addition, it is lightweight so it can easily be moved and transported. In addition, another awesome feature that I got really giddy about was that the cord pushes back into the unit. This piece of awesomeness makes me so happy because it prevents an ugly cord from being out on the counter top.

Plug for 2 Way Brew

Another great feature that the Hamilton Beach FlexBrew 2 -Way Coffee Maker has is that it allows you to not only have the ability to brew now or set a timer to brew later but it also gives you the option to brew a cup of regular or bold coffee.

Brew Now or Later

Here are a few things that are important to know before using the Hamilton Beach FlexBrew 2 -Way Coffee Maker:

  • The Warming Plate will be hot, extremely hot, whether or not you are brewing a single cup or a pot of coffee. There are a few ‘warning’ signs that let you know this but often times ‘warning’ times can be overlooked when you are in a hurry, so be careful.
  • If you plan on brewing a single cup, you must follow the instructions carefully or you will get an error message. With the single serve option you cannot fill the water reservoir to the top but only to the 14 oz mark. In all honesty, this is something that I wish that Hamilton Beach could change. Often times in the morning I get busy and do not have time to measure my water for the water reservoir and half the time my eyes are glued shut and I cannot see the measurement and in the end I get an error message.

The Hamilton Beach FlexBrew 2 -Way Coffee Maker is a great product. It is simple to use and has the ability and features to please every coffee lover in the house and any company that you may have. Yes, with any product there are things that could be changed, but these are not end of the world features.

  1. I really like that you can do single serve or brew a whole pot. This eliminates the need for 2 machines.

  2. Oooh! Yummy! I am going to make this. And soon! This sounds divine.

  3. I always thought of cinnamon to be more of an autumn flavor. Never thought about having it in a milkshake!
