White Coffee – Brewing Tips and Exciting Drink Recipes

Coffee enthusiasts are always on the lookout for new and exciting ways to enjoy their favorite beverage. Enter white coffee, a lesser-known but intriguing variant that’s gaining popularity for its unique flavor and brewing techniques. If you’re eager to explore something different in your coffee cup, white coffee might just be the next thing to try. Here’s how to brew it and some delightful drink recipes to get you started.

What is White Coffee?

White coffee isn’t white; rather, it refers to coffee beans that are roasted at a lower temperature than typical beans, resulting in a lighter color and a different flavor profile. This roasting process preserves a higher level of caffeine and a nuttier, less bitter flavor compared to regular coffee. The beans are hard and require a special grinder for a fine enough consistency.

Fidalgo Coffee’s Wired Wolf White Coffee

The Wired Wolf is a lightly roasted white coffee. White coffee has up to 50% more caffeine content than most fully-roasted coffee, is higher in antioxidants, and is low in acidity.

Only available in Espresso Grind.

Brewing White Coffee

To fully enjoy white coffee, you need to brew it correctly. Here are some tips to help you master the brewing process:

  1. Grinding the Beans: Due to their hardness, white coffee beans need to be ground more finely than regular coffee beans. Ensure your grinder is capable of handling this task to achieve an even, fine grind.
  2. Espresso Machine Method: White coffee is best brewed using an espresso machine. Fill the espresso basket with the finely ground white coffee and tamp down slightly less than you would for regular espresso. Brew as usual. The result should be a creamy, light-colored shot with a pronounced nutty flavor.
  3. Alternative Brewing Methods: If you don’t have an espresso machine, you can use a stovetop Moka pot or an AeroPress. Adjust the brewing time and water temperature to suit the fine grind and unique properties of white coffee.

Exciting White Coffee Drink Recipes

Once you’ve mastered brewing, it’s time to get creative with some delicious white coffee drink recipes:

  • Snowball: This delightful concoction combines the nutty notes of white coffee with the sweetness of white chocolate and a tropical hint of coconut. Brew your white coffee and mix it with white chocolate syrup and coconut milk or cream. Serve hot or iced for a refreshing treat.
  • White Grasshopper: Inspired by the classic cocktail, this version uses white coffee for a caffeine kick. Mix brewed white coffee with white chocolate syrup and a dash of crème de menthe. The minty freshness complements the coffee’s intensity, making for a vibrant drink.
  • PB&J: A playful twist on everyone’s favorite sandwich, this drink mixes the robust flavors of raspberry and peanut butter with white coffee. Add raspberry syrup and a spoonful of peanut butter to your brewed coffee and stir until smooth. Enjoy a nostalgic yet innovative flavor experience.
  • Dirty Chai: For those who love spice, a Dirty Chai with white coffee is perfect. Prepare a chai tea latte and add a shot of white coffee. The spices in chai blend beautifully with the nutty, potent shot of white coffee, creating a warming, energizing beverage.


White coffee offers a unique twist on the traditional coffee experience with its distinctive brewing method and versatile flavor profile that pairs well with a variety of ingredients. Whether you’re in the mood for something sweet, minty, or spicy, white coffee can accommodate your cravings. So why not give these recipes a try and see what new coffee horizons you can explore? Happy brewing!
