Not to sound dense, but have you looked in the spice section at your lcl supermarkets? That's where I get my stick cinnamon. You can always find it at those little hippy stores too, or just about any ethnic grocery store. Just about any store that has a bulk section will have it too. If all else fails, there's the internet.
If you're still bent on using ground cinamon, at least use a paper coffee filter to contain it like a teabag. That way you can actually remove it when your desired level of spice flavour has been reached & you can avoid the gelatinous mess the ground cinnamon tends to make in secondary.
