Give Your Coffee A Scandinavian Twist With Just 2 Ingredients


Scandinavian coffee is a blend of fennel and almond extract, which are used in various Scandinavian baking recipes. Fennel is a staple in Scandinavian baking, used in fresh bread loaves and crisps, while almond extract is often used in skorpa and cakes. The combination of these two flavors creates a more sophisticated taste, with the fennel having a slightly savory, dark licorice flavor that flatters its sweet flavors. To achieve a Scandi-twist effect, you can pair it with a light sweetener, almond milk or creamer, and a dash of cardamom.

For hot coffee, grind your coffee beans coarsely, mix them with fennel seeds, a dash of almond extract, and brew as usual. This can be done in drip, pour-over, espresso, or iced latte. For cold coffee, wait for 24 hours before brewing, then strain the mixture through a sieve. Be lenient with the almond extract, as it is strong and only needs about half of a teaspoon for every cup of ground coffee. The fennel seeds are more forgiving, but should not exceed a teaspoon. You can also add a tablespoon or two of sugar if you prefer a sweeter taste.
