I love straight black coffee, no cream, no sugar, just pure coffee. But there are times when I’m feeling a little creative with my coffee routine and decide to spend hours on Pinterest looking at coffee ideas. For the most part, I don’t love sugary sweet drinks because of the inevitable sugar crash, not to mention extra calories. In the winter time, I can’t help but try out new hot coffee drinks when it’s cold out. I’ve tried four out of six of the coffee recipes on this list and the other two are on my To-Do list this season. If you’ve tried any of the coffees Iv’e listed, let me know in the comments below and your experience. If you click the title, it will open up and another window and likely take you the blog with full instructions on how to make it and exact ingredients amount. I didn’t put the recipes on this list because I think those blogs deserve the credit and click since they went out of their way make those drinks, we’re just the lucky benefactors.

A hearty coffee to start your day? Why not, I’ve never tried this blend of coffee until I saw a video online (linked above). I just happen to have all the ingredients needed to make this right away and it was insanely good! But instead of a French Press, I used a Chemex pour over to make my coffee, and it doesn’t really matter which method you use for this as long as you can make coffee. I don’t know if this coffee is something I’ll drink daily, but definitely a drink I’d make a few times a year. What you’ll need to make this recipe:
- Pour over coffee
- 1 egg
- Condensed milk
This coffee seems simple enough to make, most of the ingredients are readily available in most people’s kitchens. Caramel can be bought, but you can also easily make it at home if you have time. It’s basically sugar, flour, butter and heat. If you’re not the cooking kind, I understand, you can buy jars of caramel at the grocery store, they are readily available all year round. Putting this recipe together once you have all the ingredients in place should be a breeze. This is definitely on the list of coffee for me to try, I have a feeling it will taste something similar to a caramel macchiatto from a very well know coffee chain. Below is a list of ingredients you’ll need to get started.
- Brown Sugar
- Whipped Cream
- Pour Over Coffee
Harry Potter fans everywhere, rejoice! If you’re not familiar with Harry Potter or butter beer, check out this link here. I made this drink a few nights ago, it was pretty amazing! I did tweak the recipe a little bit though, instead of espresso, I just made plain old pour over coffee using my favorite roaster. I also added shot of liquor (Vodka) in mine, gave it a nice little kick at the end. I would highly recommend this recipe if you need a change of pace or just looking for a nice treat one day. This drink was fairly involved and you’ll need the following items to make this drink:
- Brown sugar
- Unsalted Butter
- Vanilla Extract
- Cinnamon Powder
- 1 Shot Espresso
- Whipped Cream
- Toasted Marshmallows
This one isn’t really a coffee drink, but rather a compliment to those folks that love creamer on their coffees. I didn’t have the courage to make this one although it piqued my interest, so I wanted to share this find at least. Basically use the coffee of your choice and just carefully add this creamer to any coffee cup and you’re good to go. This recipe uses real peanut butter cups, this recipe might be best if done after Halloween (all the crazy candy sale the day after). This one is super simple to make, give it a go!
- Peanut Butter Cup candy
- Real Peanut Butter
- Half & Half
I make this in a weekly basis! I love bulletproof coffee, although I don’t buy the branded MCT called Brain Octane. I just buy the regular 100% Pure Source MCT Oil for when I make bulletproof coffee. It’s half the price of Brain Octane and I haven’t been able to tell the difference between the two (I’ve used both), except for fancier marketing on Bulletproof branded version. I also get butter from my local farmer’s market that sell grass fed cow butter. Overall I actually really enjoy bulletproof coffee, since I’m terrible at eating breakfast, bulletproof coffee fills me until lunch and doesn’t upset my stomach. The idea is that you take, MCT, butter and coffee and blend it all together to get creamy, high in fat coffee. Here some of the ingredients you’ll need to get started.
- 1 Cup of coffee
- MCT (basically coconut oil)
Vodka and coffee, you can’t go wrong there. Although just the two together would be gross, adding cream, Kahlua might give it that extra depth. I’ve had so many White Russian coffee cocktails in the past, to say I’m a big fan would be an understatement. We normally would take all the ingredients with us and drink it while camping, it’s easy to pack it all. I’d make campfire coffee early in the morning in a cold camping trip and serve White Russians to friends and family with bacon and egg breakfast, also cooked over campfire. This one is . easy folks, it requires few ingredients and just mixing:
There you have it, a list of coffees to make on a cold day, admittedly some are more involved than others. If you don’t know your way around kitchen, ask someone that is, these recipes are worth sharing with a friend. If you end up making any of these or adapt the recipe to your liking, let me know in the comments below and share your experience.
