Used in a lot of baking recipes (cakes, brownies and frosting) as well as sauces, espresso powder is incredibly easy to make. We even use it for a delicious Espresso Custard to fill donuts.
1 cup dark roasted whole coffee/espresso beans
Preheat oven to 200 degrees F
Place whole beans* on an unlined baking sheet, spread evenly
Bake in oven for about 1 hour, until they are lightly toasted and dried.
Remove from oven and allow to cool
Grind into a fine powder using espresso (fine) grind setting on your Grind Select.
*Alternately, you can grind beans prior to placing in the oven, then regrind again for a finer, powder consistency. Just be careful the grinds do not burn during the baking process.
