Coffee flour is a food with a mission. Every year, billions of pounds of coffee fruit are discarded as a byproduct of coffee production. Instead of leaving the fruit to rot as waste, coffee flour was created to convert the leftover fruit into a tasty, nutritious flour that can be used for baking, cooking and making beverages. High in fiber, protein, and antioxidants, coffee flour is a non-GMO food that is naturally gluten-free. Not only is our coffee flour a perfectly versatile ingredient, it also helps create jobs for farmers and protect the environment.
What Does Coffee Flour Taste Like?
It has a unique, smooth flavor reminiscent of tea with floral or citrus notes. Perhaps surprisingly, coffee flour does not taste like coffee.
Does Coffee Flour Contain Caffeine?
Coffee flour only contains a small amount of caffeine. It’s approx. equal to the amount of caffeine in dark chocolate.
How Should I Use Coffee Flour?
Coffee flour can easily be incorporated into baking recipes. Try it in a recipe for cookies, muffins, brownies, squares, cakes, bread, or similar recipes. Coffee flour is intended to be mixed with other flours in baking because it’s extremely high in fiber. We recommend using 30% coffee flour in place of all-purpose flour or other gluten-free flours in your recipes.
For a boost of nutrition, you can also add a couple tablespoons of coffee flour to smoothies, soups, or sauces. Blend or stir it in until well-combined. Coffee flour behaves similarly to cocoa powder.
Health Benefits of Coffee Flour
A one-tablespoon serving of coffee flour contains only 34 calories, yet packs a whole lot of nutrition! This small serving provides over five grams of dietary fiber, including soluble and insoluble fiber to support digestion. Coffee flour is extremely rich in potassium and iron. Depending on the serving size, it can also supplement your diet with a good source of protein and antioxidants. Plus, coffee flour is sodium-free, fat-free, gluten-free, paleo and vegan-friendly. Coffee flour has all your dietary bases covered!
A Story of Sustainability
Coffee flour was created as a solution to an environmental problem, and it has since evolved to become so much more than that. As you may know, every coffee bean is surrounded by a pulpy red cherry. This pulpy coffee fruit is a byproduct of coffee production, and unfortunately, most of it is discarded as waste that often contaminates rivers and local water sources. That’s where coffee flour comes in! Instead of throwing out the coffee fruit as waste, it can be converted into a finely ground flour for baking, cooking and more.
This unique baking product stands to revolutionize the coffee industry. In addition to eliminating waste in the environment, coffee flour has provided an additional revenue stream for coffee farmers. New jobs are also created in order to mill and process the fruit. The ultimate goal is to supplement farmers’ income, create more jobs, and make a positive impact on the entire industry. That’s why we’re happy to source coffee flour at Nuts.com. Together with our customers, we can make a positive social, economic, and environmental impact.
Wonderful product! Great way to pump up that chocolate flavor in baked goods without having to compensate the liquid ratio of the recipe!Mario, Raleigh, NC
I followed the recipe for choc coffee flour muffins it was awful, bitter, did not bake thru no matter how long it baked, guess I'll look for another recipe to use up the rest of the flourRonnie, Reading, PA
I work for a coffee roaster (actually work in the kitchen of their cafe) in Watertown Wisconsin. Everyone was wowed by the coffee flour & it was talked up at the monthly coffee classes. We will be ordering some to sample out to customers. I made brownies & everyone loved them. The smell was like cherries to most people so the next batch of brownies will be Black Forest with pie cherries in them, maybe some cream cheese too. Accidentally spilled some in my car & the car hasn't smelled this good since it was new...:)Anne, Jefferson, WI
I have not used it in cake yet but have mixed it in muffin mix .Diane, Gilbert, PA
