The sweet and slightly nutty flavour of hazelnut coffee is not difficult to replicate at home! You just need the right ingredients and a basic knowledge of the technique. Here's how to ace a cafe-style hazelnut coffee at home!


– Freshly brewed coffee (1 cup) – Hazelnut syrup or hazelnut-flavored coffee syrup (1-2 tablespoons, adjust to taste) – Milk or cream (optional, to taste) – Whipped cream (optional, for garnish) – Crushed hazelnuts (optional, for garnish)

Step 1

Start by brewing a cup of your favorite coffee using your preferred brewing method. Whether it's a drip coffee maker, French press, or espresso machine, ensure that you have a strong and flavorful base for your hazelnut coffee.

Step 2

If you don't have pre-made hazelnut syrup, you can easily make a simple syrup infused with hazelnut flavor. In a small saucepan, combine equal parts water. Add hazelnut extract or hazelnut flavoring to the syrup. Let the syrup cool before using.

Step 3

Pour the freshly brewed coffee into a mug. Add 1-2 tablespoons of hazelnut syrup to the coffee, adjusting the amount according to your taste preferences. Stir well to combine and ensure that the hazelnut flavor is evenly distributed throughout the coffee.

Step 4

If you enjoy your coffee creamy, you can add a splash of milk or cream to your hazelnut coffee. Stir gently to incorporate the milk or cream into the coffee, creating a smooth and velvety texture.

Step 5

For an extra touch of indulgence, top your hazelnut coffee with a dollop of whipped cream. Sprinkle crushed hazelnuts on top of the whipped cream for added flavor and texture.
