Whether you’re hosting a large or small gathering this holiday season, you’ll want a quick way to serve a festive cup of Teeccino to accompany your desserts. After all that work of getting the dinner on the table, let’s keep it simple yet delicious! Here are 3 ways I recommend to make a holiday cup of Teeccino depending on how many guests you’ll be serving:
Less than 8 people: Use a drip coffee maker to make 10-12 cups of brewed Teeccino.
8-15 people: If your cup size is 8-10oz, you’ll need to brew more than a single pot in your 10-12 cup drip coffee maker. Be efficient and brew 2 pots of Teeccino ahead of time. Store the brewed liquid in your refrigerator (you can store chilled Teeccino for a week or more!) and when you want to serve it, pour it into a pot and heat it up on your stove. Ladle the hot Teeccino into your cups. Alternatively, you can brew Teeccino an hour or two in advance and store it in an airport.
16 – 60+ people: Brew 1 to 2 gallons of Teeccino using a coffee urn. Urns are sold based on the number of cups they serve, but remember that a coffee “cup” is only 5oz. An urn that is supposed to brew 100 cups, only brews 67 x 8 oz cups. That’s why I like to measure the water in gallons (128 fluid oz/gallon). 1 cup of Teeccino all-purpose grind brews 1 gallon in an urn. Use 2 cups to make 2 gallons. Couldn’t be simpler! Just pour a gallon of water into an urn and add 1 cup of Teeccino to the brew basket. Start your urn brewing at least 50 minutes ahead of the time when you want it to be ready. Urns make it easy to serve a lot of people at once.
We offer attractive laminated custom labels so you can purchase the flavor of your choice to hang from the urn.
Now to make your cups festive:
Maple Cappuccinos: Heat milk or a non-dairy alternative in a pot on the stove. You’ll need 2 oz of milk per cup. Use a handheld milk frother to whisk the milk into a foamy froth. Fill your cups to 3/4 with brewed Teeccino. Spoon the frothy milk into the cup to create a cappuccino topping. Then pour in the remaining hot milk to fill the cups to the top. Sweeten with 1-2 tablespoons of maple syrup that you dribble over the foam!
- Mocha Cappuccinos: Fill your cups to 3/4 with brewed Teeccino. Add 1-2 tablespoons of chocolate syrup. Stir well. Top with foamy milk as described above. Sprinkle cocoa powder over the top of the foam.
- Teeccino with Liqueurs:
- Baileys® Irish Cream: Add 1-2 tablespoons to each cup of hot brewed Teeccino. No need to add milk to these cups but if you want a foamy cappuccino, just follow the directions above. Baileys® makes every flavor of Teeccino deliciously superb!
- Frangelico®: Add 1-2 tablespoons to each cup of hot brewed Teeccino. Absolutely divine with Hazelnut Teeccino!
- Godiva® Dark or Milk Chocolate Liqueur: Add 1-2 tablespoons to each cup of hot brewed Teeccino. Dark chocolate has no cream in it, milk chocolate does. You should use the dark for a richer chocolate flavor or the milk chocolate to take the place of milk. Chocolate heaven coming right up!
