We’ve popped together five of our favourite recipes and which flavoured beans we use to add something extra. Spice up your day with these tasty treats:


Iced Coffee

Starting off with a simple but delicious recipe for iced coffee. While we mainly enjoy it in summer, we know a dedicated group of iced-coffee drinkers drink it year-round, so here are two options for a flavoured iced-coffee kick.

You’ll Need
-Coffee beans
-Milk of your choice
-Ice cream if you want to make it extra delicious

Summer- Dutch Vanilla for summery, vanilla vibes.
Winter- Ole Chocolate Mole for a rich, spicy take on iced goodness.

How to Make
Simply mix a shot of your flavoured coffee with ice, milk and ice cream, and you’ve got a flavoured iced coffee that’ll make your day.


Banoffee Smoothie

For a deliciously almond twist, Amaretto Amour
For some truffle magic, Chocolate Truffle

How to Make
Pour all your ingredients into a cocktail shaker over a handful of ice, shake it like a polaroid picture (or until the outside of the shaker feels cold) and then strain into your glass and garnish with a few coffee beans.


Chocolate-Covered Coffee Beans

You’ll Need
-1 Cup of Coffee Beans
-1 Cup of Chocolate -any type you like
-Double boiler or a pot and a metal bowl to melt the chocolate in
-Baking paper or a silicone tray

For a hint of minty chocolate Chocolate Mint
To add a fruity touch Black Forest

How to Make
Melt the chocolate in the double boiler, or in a metal bowl on top of a pot full of boiling water. Stir it until it’s all melted and has a creamy consistency. Add in the beans and stir to coat them evenly. Once they are coated, spread them out on a tray lined with baking paper and leave them to cool and set. These also make a great gift idea for an easy-to-make handmade option.
