Brew the Coffee:

Before starting, make sure that you have freshly ground hazelnut coffee beans. Brew 1 cup of coffee per serving of the Cinnamon Hazelnut Cream Coffee Recipe. As a barista, I highly recommend using Caffe Ibis freshly roasted hazelnut coffee beans, which can bring out the authentic cinnamon hazelnut flavor from the drink.

Prepare The Cinnamony Mix:

One of the star ingredients of this recipe is cinnamon, so it’s essential to make the mix for enhancing the flavor. Add 1/4 cup of brown sugar, 1 stick of cinnamon, 1 clove, and a pinch of nutmeg to a small saucepan with 1/2 cup of water. Bring to the boil on medium heat and then reduce to low heat and let it simmer for 5 minutes while stirring occasionally.

Whip up The Hazelnut Cream:

In a separate mixing bowl, add 1/4 cup of hazelnut creamer and whisk it using a hand mixer until fluffy. Now, add three tablespoons of hazelnut-flavored liqueur to the mix and whisk everything together until stiff peaks form.

Assemble The Drink:

Add freshly brewed hot coffee to your favorite mug, approximately one cup per serving. Pour in your homemade cinnamony mix until you achieve the desired taste—most customers prefer adding about one tablespoon. Mix in ~0.08 teaspoons or just a pinch of ground cinnamon with each cup of coffee for extra flavor.

Next, top the mixture with two tablespoons of hazelnut cream mix that you whipped earlier. You can also add whipped cream as an additional topping for an extra creamy feel.

Serve & Enjoy!

The cinnamon stick is not only used for flavoring but also as decoration. Add one per serving for an aesthetically pleasing presentation. Serve the Cinnamon Hazelnut Cream Coffee Recipe hot and enjoy its warm aroma and rich flavor. Sit back, relax, sip, and savor the delicious hazelnut-related taste.

Substitutions and Variations

As with any recipe, there are always substitutions and variations you can make to customize the taste to your liking. Here are a few ideas to help you switch things up:

– Use different flavored coffee beans: If you’re not a fan of hazelnut coffee, try using a different flavored coffee instead. Experiment with cinnamon or chocolate-flavored coffee to give your drink an extra kick.

– Use different sweeteners: Brown sugar is delicious in this recipe, but you can also use honey, maple syrup, or agave nectar for alternative sweeteners.

– Use different spices: Cinnamon is the star of this recipe, but don’t be afraid to mix it up with other spices such as nutmeg or cloves. Add a pinch of spice per cup and adjust it based on your cinnamon taste, and see how that changes the flavor profile.

– Veganize it: If you’re looking to make this recipe vegan, then swap out the dairy for non-dairy products such as soy milk or almond milk. You can also top it off with whipped cream made from coconut cream instead of heavy cream.

– Make it iced: Turn this recipe into an iced coffee by skipping the hot water and brewing fresh roasted hazelnut-flavored coffee over ice. Add your desired amount of cinnamon and hazelnut creamer and shake/blend with ice. Top with whipped cream and enjoy!

Whether you decide to make substitutions or variations to this cinnamon hazelnut cream coffee recipe, make sure you find a combination that suits your taste buds. Explore these ideas and experiment until you create your own signature drink.

The Cinnamon Hazelnut Cream Coffee is best served hot and topped with whipped cream, a dusting of ground cinnamon and a sprinkle of chopped hazelnuts. The warm, sweet and spicy aroma of the coffee is elevated when paired with a slice of freshly baked cinnamon bread or a warm croissant straight from the bakery.

In terms of alcoholic pairings, the Cinnamon Hazelnut Cream Coffee goes particularly well with Frangelico or spiced rum.

To make the perfect cinnamon hazelnut cream coffee, you need to pay attention to a few details. Here are some tips to ensure that your coffee will turn out amazing every time.

Firstly, use high-quality coffee beans. Freshly roasted beans will make a significant difference in the taste of your coffee. So buy fresh roasted beans, grind them, and brew your coffee immediately.

Secondly, use fresh ingredients. Make sure that your cinnamon sticks, hazelnuts, cloves, and nutmegs are of good quality and not outdated. Old spices can ruin the taste of your coffee.

Thirdly, adjust the amount of cinnamon according to your taste. Some people prefer strong cinnamon taste, while others prefer subtle hints. So start with adding 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon per cup of coffee and gradually increase the amount as per your preference.

Fourthly, use the right creamer ratio. Too much creamer can water down the coffee, and too little can make it too strong or bitter. Use 1/4 cup of hazelnut creamer for every 1 cup of hot coffee.

Fifthly, heat up the milk before adding it to the coffee. This step will make sure that the temperature difference between milk and coffee doesn’t bother you later on.

Lastly, top off your cinnamon hazelnut cream coffee with whipped cream or vanilla ice cream for a decadent treat. These toppings also enhance the taste of the coffee and give it a classic vibe.

By following these tips carefully, you’ll be on your way to brewing a delicious cup of spiced hazelnut latte at home just like Mama Jill’s Cinnamon Hazelnut Cream Coffee.
