So, it often happens that I have just a little tip or tidbit or very short tutorial I want to share with you that doesn't seem "worthy" of a whole post--I know, I know, you're thinking, "There's no way Amber can write a short tutorial!" but I assure you I can! Sometimes.
My awesome husband actually came up with this idea, and with his encouragement, I've decided to add yet another weekly feature to the blog: Two-Minute Tuesday. So on Tuesdays I'll be sharing some of those quick tips and ideas in short little posts.
Today I'm sharing how to make hazelnut coffee with actual hazelnuts--none of that flavoring stuff with artificial ingredients.
You will need a few hazelnuts and your favorite coffee.
First, before brewing your coffee, you need to grind the hazelnuts into a fine powder.
You can use a food processor to do this; I prefer using the Magic Bullet.
For one pot of coffee, stir 1 tsp of hazelnut powder in with your grounds. You could always add more in the future if you want more flavor, but I would recommend that as a starting point; hazelnuts have a pretty robust flavor.
After mixing in the hazelnut powder, brew your coffee as usual, whether in a coffee pot or using our favorite method, the French Press.
That's it! Enjoy your delicious hazelnut coffee!
Note: If you are starting with ground coffee, grind the hazelnuts on their own and add them to the grounds as mentioned above. If you are using whole beans, toss 3 or 4 hazelnuts in with your coffee beans and just grind them all together.
I have only tried this with hazelnuts, but I bet it would be delicious with almonds, pecans, walnuts, or even pistachios! What flavorings do you prefer in your coffee?
Linking up with Treasure Box Tuesday, Worthwhile Wednesday, and the Wednesday Roundup.
