Coffee Week Part 2: Hot Coffee Recipes from the Test Kitchen

This week, we are celebrating coffee week and today we are diving into the topic of hot coffee. There are hundreds of ways to make it, and everyone has their own version of the ideal cup. Do you drink your coffee black or do you take it with cream and sugar? Do you prefer it hot or closer to room temperature? Do you like flavors, whipped creams and syrups or do you prefer a more straightforward cup of joe? Do you prefer a light roast or a full-bodied dark roast? The combinations are endless.

Coffee can be made in a variety of ways, too. Do you use a coffee maker with a carafe or do you prefer the innovative Brewstation® Coffee Makers that dispense your coffee without the need for a carafe? Do you like a single-serve coffee maker like The Scoop® Single-Cup Coffee Maker (49981) or do you like to use single-serve packs in the FlexBrew® Single-Serve Coffee Maker (49995R)? You might prefer a latte or espresso to the traditional cup of coffee in the Espresso Maker (40715). Or maybe you prefer the 2-Way Brewer (49980Z) that lets you make a pot for home or a single-cup mug for mornings on the go. Again, the possibilities are numerous and everyone has a personal preference.
