    Wake Up and Smell the Biscotti: Coffee Bean Biscotti Featuring Alex's Low Acid Organic Coffee

    Wake Up and Smell the Biscotti: Coffee Bean Biscotti Featuring Alex's Low Acid Organic Coffee

    by Alex Brecher June 04, 2024

    Morning routines and rituals vary far and wide, but if there's one thing a vast majority of us share, it's the love for that first, glorious sip of coffee. As someone who passionately enjoys both the art of making and consuming coffee, I've been on a continuous quest to find the perfect companion for my morning ritual. Today, folks, I believe I've struck gold—or rather, a golden brown, with a recipe that not only complements your coffee but elevates it: Coffee Bean Biscotti with a special twist, incorporating Alex's Low Acid Organic Coffee. Now, let's dive into the hows and whys, shall we?

    What You'll Need

    Ingredients:

    Equipment:

    • Mixing bowls
    • Hand mixer or stand mixer
    • Baking sheet
    • Parchment paper (for less mess and sticking)
    • Cooling rack

    Okay, gear up! It’s baking time, and trust me, your kitchen is about to smell like a cozy, inviting café.

    Let's Get Baking

    • Preheat & Prepare: Kick things off by preheating your oven to 325°F (163°C). Line your baking sheet with parchment paper.
    • Mix Dry Ingredients: In a bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, and salt. This mix is going to form the backbone of our biscotti, giving it that iconic crisp and crunch.
    • Cream Butter & Sugar: In a separate bowl, beat together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. We’re talking about a cloud of sweetness here.
    • Eggs, Coffee, Vanilla: Beat in the eggs, one at a time, then pour in the brewed Alex's Low Acid Organic Coffee and vanilla extract. Mix until it's all harmoniously blended. Whisper sweet nothings to it if you must; this is the liquid gold that’s going to infuse our biscotti with its rich, coffee flavor.
    • Dry Meets Wet: Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet, stirring until just combined. Respect the dough; we don’t want to overmix. Fold in the coffee grounds and whole coffee beans, distributing them evenly for little bursts of flavor in every bite.
    • Shape & Bake: Divide the dough in half. On your prepared baking sheet, shape each half into a log about 2 inches wide. Give them space to expand; they’re not into being cramped. Bake until golden brown and firm, around 30 to 35 minutes. Then, let them cool on the baking sheet for about 10 minutes. This downtime is perfect for a coffee break, just saying.
    • Slice & Bake Again: With a serrated knife, slice the logs into 1/2 inch thick slices. Lay the slices cut-side down on the baking sheet. Bake for another 10 minutes, flip them, and bake for another 10 minutes on the other side. What we're after is that signature dry and crisp texture.
    • Cool: Transfer the biscotti to a wire rack to cool completely. This is the hardest part—the waiting.
    • Optional Chocolate Drizzle: If you're feeling fancy, melt some chocolate and drizzle it over the cooled biscotti. It adds an extra layer of decadence and pairs beautifully with the deep coffee flavors.

    Coffee & Biscotti: A Match Made in Heaven

    There you have it, a biscotti that not only stands up to but enhances your coffee experience. The use of Alex's Low Acid Organic Coffee in both the biscotti dough and for pairing ensures a harmonious taste experience that's gentle on the stomach while tickling the taste buds.

    Coffee Bean Biscotti is perfect for dipping into your morning cup or enjoying as an after-dinner treat with a coffee-based dessert cocktail. The crisp, coffee-infused texture and the crunch of whole beans create a delightful contrast to the smoothness of your drink.

    So, the next time you find yourself reaching for that morning cup of Joe, remember that with a little planning, you could elevate your coffee ritual with a side of homemade Coffee Bean Biscotti. Happy baking, and even happier coffee drinking!
