Slow Cooker Spiced Cappuccino for a Crowd

Simmering the cinnamon in milk adds a more subtle, yet distinctive flavor to this drink than whatʼs achieved by just sprinkling cinnamon on top of the frothed milk. If you prefer, you can skip adding the coffee or espresso to the slow cooker. Instead, use an immersion blender to froth the milk in the slow cooker, repeating as necessary as you top individual servings of the coffee or espresso with frothed milk ladled into the drinks according to taste. This method works better if you or another guestʼs preference is to sweeten the drink; stir in the sugar or sweetener to taste, and then top with the froth.
