HOW TO MAKE WITCHES BREW COFFEE

Posted on Mon, Oct 23, 2017

My first experience with coffee was at a college as a barista. In between each class, I would serve a mad rush of exhausted scholars. My customers were mainly returning students who were balancing a family, career, and pursuing a college degree. To describe them as exhausted is an understatement. Many would arrive at 6:00 pm for evening classes after a full day of work and a stop at home to feed their children. These people needed caffeine and lots of it. For this reason alone, the witches brew joined our coffee menu.

The Witches Brew is magical however you will need to set your cauldron aside; this caffeine filled potion requires a Keurig® brewer instead. In my barista days, the Witches Brew recipe combined an unassuming roast such as Colombian or any breakfast blend brought to life with a shot of espresso. Keurig® brewers are not capable of preparing an authentic espresso but, Dark Magic K-Cup® coffee is the next best thing.

You will need:

  • 1 of any other K-Cup® pod you have on hand preferably a medium or light roast
Directions:
  • Brew your Dark Magic K-Cup® coffee pod on the lowest water setting of your Keurig® brewer. Choose the "strong" option if you are using a 2.0; be sure to use a large mug (it will need to hold at least 18 ounces).
  • Next, brew your standard K-Cup® pod on your preferred water setting directly into the same mug. I would recommend a Fair Trade Select Colombian on the 10-ounce option.

Your Witches Brew coffee will pack a powerful caffeine punch so please skip this drink if you are caffeine sensitive. For the rest of us, enjoy a turbocharged boost that is sure to help you fly through your busy spell casting days! Most coffee shops serve Witches Brew; it often appears under different names such as a Red Eye. But, you don't need to worry about that you can now make your very own Witches Brew right at home, using your Keurig® coffee brewer!
