Winter Coffee Recipes to Try. As the colder months draw closer, there’s no better time for a hot cup of coffee to warm and fuel you for the day ahead. Getting out of bed and leaving the protection of your warm blanket is only possible if there is a tasty cup of the old brew waiting for you.
If you’re looking for some new ideas to stir up this winter, over the next two months we will be sharing a list of delicious coffee recipes with a winter twist.
Winter Coffee Recipes – Butterscotch Caramel Coffee
This sweet coffee treat is perfect for sitting around a warm fire after dinner or after shovelling snow. You’ll need some butterscotch syrup or some flavoured schnapps if you’re after something stronger for this one.
- 1 large cup of coffee
- A large pinch of ground cinnamon
- 1-ounce butterscotch syrup (or 1-ounce butterscotch schnapps)
- 1-ounce heavy whipping cream
- 1 tablespoons caramel sauce
- Whipped cream
Brew one large cup of coffee using the best coffee beans. We like to make the best tasting coffee strong.
Combine the brewed coffee, butterscotch syrup (or schnapps), heavy cream, and caramel and stir until the syrup and caramel are well incorporated.
Top with whipped cream. We also like to add a drizzling of caramel and a pinch of cinnamon to give it that coffee shop vibe.
Gingerbread Latte Recipe
If holidays make you think of cosy nights by the fire and spiced gingerbread cookies, this is the latte recipe for you! Whisk espresso, molasses, and spices and top with velvety steamed milk for the perfect winter treat.
· 4 ounces of espresso coffee
· 1 teaspoon cinnamon
· 1 teaspoon nutmeg
· 1 teaspoon ground ginger
· 3 tablespoons molasses
· 1 ½ cup milk of any kind
1. Combine espresso, spices, and molasses in a medium bowl.
2. Whisk until fully combined.
3. Steam the milk using your milk steamer. You can also heat the milk in a saucepan, pour it into a heat-safe lidded jar, and shake it until it’s fully frothed.
4. Divide the espresso mixture between two coffee mugs.
5. Pour the steamed milk on top, spooning milk froth onto each mug at the end.
6. Garnish with a sprinkle of cinnamon or a small gingerbread cookie. Enjoy your cosy drink!
Gingerbread lattes are delicious and easy to make, and you can’t go wrong with the above recipe. But one of the best benefits of making them at home (besides saving money) is that you can make your lattes precisely the way you want them. Here are a few tips:
Can you use coffee instead?
If you don’t have an espresso machine or stove top espresso maker, you can substitute strong coffee. Make the coffee as concentrated as possible, and use an extra ounce or two for the best flavour.
What are the best garnishes?
Garnishes are where you can get creative! Try adding a sprinkle of your favourite spices or a small gingerbread man to the milk foam on top of your latte. You could also crumble a gingerbread cookie on top or stick in a festive peppermint candy cane. Or keep it simple with a little brown sugar, chocolate chips, or cocoa powder.
What kind of milk should you use?
Regular old cow’s milk works well in this recipe, but if you’re cutting out dairy or prefer almond milk, no problem! You can use your favourite kind of milk, from skim to coconut.

Remember to use high quality coffee, meaning the use of high quality coffee beans. Carefully pick the right coffee roast type, there are so many coffee blends to choose from. Before you buy coffee beans explore the market of coffee bean suppliers. There are many cheap coffee beans on the market, but be careful, as not all of them are the best tasting.
If you never had one completed on your own, do watch some YouTube videos of Barista training advice. And finally if you are a massive coffee fan like we are, you can do your research and find the best coffee bean wholesale provider for your needs, by doing so you will guarantee yourself a good discount if buying in bulk.
