I decided to try to make some coffee macarons as the flavour of the week. Where does one acquire coffee beans? I wasn’t up for buying an entire bag of beans just so I could use a few so my options were limited – beg, borrow or steal. I requested for some from a barista at a cafe that I had brunch at and he was nice enough to give me some. I was very pleased.
I made these with the French method and to be honest I think I’m just better off using the Italian method from now on – the shells were slightly uneven and the texture was a little cake-y. They tasted delicious though – rich coffee buttercream with a very intense burst of coffee from the bean.
Recipe for super easy buttercream below:
20g caster sugar
half a pack of instant coffee
- Cream all ingredients together and pipe into shells.

The coffee macarons looks delicious.
Thank you – I had fun making them!
Beautiful! Worth begging for. 🙂
Thank you – I was a little nervous about asking for coffee beans but they were very nice about it.
Nice barista! These look great and sound even better.
Yes, the barista was very nice! I was touched by their generosity.
did you have to let them “dry” out for a while before eating?
Well, I’m far too impatient for that lol… but I ate one today and it’s a little bit better. Still not perfect though will have to work at it.
