Hazelnut is probably one of your favourite coffee flavours if you enjoy smooth, nutty drinks. Around the world, cafes and coffee shops sell this well-liked flavour. You have a variety of ordering options, including hot coffee, iced coffee, cappuccino, and more. Hazelnut is an excellent choice for blending with non-traditional components like almond milk.


The majority of coffee shops provide hazelnut coffee that has been "flavoured" with hazelnuts. Although it is tasty, it can significantly increase the sugar, fat, and calories in your morning coffee. Additionally, it differs from how a hazelnut brew is typically made. It's not difficult to make coffee that truly tastes like hazelnuts.


1. Coffee Beans of your choice (light roast is usually preferred)

2. Shelled, unsalted hazelnuts

3. Milk of choice

4. Sweetener of choice

5. Optional: Hazelnut extract


1. Grab your chosen whole-bean coffee as your first step. A mild roast is advised because it will enhance the flavour. Additionally, you'll need unsalted hazelnuts because salt can change how your coffee tastes. Additionally, you want to make sure the nuts are whole because most of the taste is found in the shells. You won't detect any skin in your beverage, so don't be concerned. Both your beans and your nuts should be measured out. We suggest going with two parts beans and one part nuts. You may have to play around with the ratio until you get the right flavour for you, however.

2. To grind the beans and hazelnuts together, add them both to your grinder. Remember that when you grind hazelnuts, the oil will come out, thus you might prefer to use a separate spice grinder or food processor rather than your coffee grinder. The end product should ideally be on the coarse side to help bring out the flavour of the nuts in the beans. After using your grinder or processor, make sure to give it a thorough cleaning.

3. The final step is entirely optional. Hazelnut coffee is frequently consumed black, without any other additions. That being said, adding some milk and sweetener can lighten it up. Add one or both to a mug and add coffee.
