Break 5 cinnamon sticks in half and put into the coffee mill.
Grind just the cinnamon sticks into small pieces. These will initially break somewhat explosively in the grinder and potentially jam the blades. This is why you want to break them up first.

Add 12-14 whole cloves.
Grind to a smooth powder. It should look like flowing water in the grinder.
