Enjoy CoffeeAM's Holiday Spotify Playlists:





Give them a gift from the heart with something handmade. This week, we're sharing homemade crafts using coffee beans, used coffee grounds, and coffee!
Hit play on this Home for the Holidays Spotify playlist and spend some time crafting with us.



Coffee Beans


Coffee beans make a unique and aromatic crafting medium. They can be glued onto items, used as filler, and added to things like candles. You can make your own gifts using coffee beans or add to your own holiday (and every day!) decor.

Easy

The easiest way to craft with coffee beans is to use them as a filler. Make layered patterns by using beans with different roast levels including unroasted or green coffee beans. You could even spraypaint some of the beans. Projects you can make using this method include:

  • Vases for pine and holly sprigs, air plants, candles
  • Decorative dishes to hold elegant ornaments
  • Glass globe ornaments
  • Cute coffee mugs with votives

Moderate

With a little more work and skill, you can add a glue gun to your toolset and glue coffee beans to items. These projects can include:

  • Foam Christmas tree molds
  • Flat wooden ornaments
  • Foam balls
  • Wreaths

Add more decorative elements to these decor items with star anise, cinnamon sticks, buttons, ribbon, jute, burlap, and lace. For larger pieces, add frosted pinecones, pine sprays, and sprigs of holly. You could even add real or faux winter flowers, dried fruit, or flowers to your designs.

Difficult

If you've been crafting for a while, these more difficult projects might be more what you're looking for:

  • Candles covered with coffee beans
  • Candles made with coffee beans
  • Decorative mugs filled with coffee beans and resin



Used Coffee Grounds


You can recycle your coffee grounds for crafts, too! Use the grounds in the same way you use the coffee beans.

  • Candleholder - fill with used grounds and fit a tealight candle into them.
  • Planter - in a small pot, fill two-thirds with potting soil and the rest with used coffee grounds for small plants
  • Coffee candle 1 - warm the sides of a wide store-bought pillar candle and roll in the used coffee grounds
  • Coffee candle 2 - make your own candle and add used grounds to the wax or to the sides of the candle form

You can also recycle used coffee grounds for beauty and relaxation. You can make the scrubs and other beauty items in this post and present them in beautiful containers.





Brewed Coffee


Brewed coffee can also be used for decorative reasons. For the holidays, make coffee-stained wrapping paper for your coffee gifts. Simply brush coffee over the paper, dip the lip of a coffee mug in coffee and make rings, and slosh a little coffee onto the paper.

Use pre-cut gift tags and dip them in coffee, make rings with mugs, and drip coffee across them.

Choose thicker paper and, using the same methods, stain it and make notepaper, handmade journals, and other stationery pieces. Add a little extra interest to your coffee-stained paper by using salt, rice, noodles, and string to create interesting textures. While the coffee is still wet on the paper, add one of the texturizers, let it dry, then rub it off the paper.

In addition to paper, you can also stain fabric with coffee. Lace pieces, curtains, linens, and even lampshades, and other textiles take on an interesting look when coffee is used as a stain.

For artistic pieces, use coffee-stained watercolor paper, made the same way as the gift and stationery papers. Coffee can also be used as paint. The more concentrated the coffee, the more intense or darker it will be. Another interesting way to incorporate coffee into your art is to use spills and rings as a prompt to create drawings.

Grinding Coffee:

Grinding your beans just prior to brewing results in a much stronger and fresher flavor. The type of grind you use should correspond to the way you brew your coffee. You should use the finest grind possible for your brew method without going too fine.


Featured Products: Brewing

Choosing a fresh-roasted gourmet coffee is only half the battle when making a superior cup. The brewing method you use can be just as important.

Cold Brew Coffee

The toddy maker uses an unusual cold-brewing method that creates a coffee concentrate. This concentrate is then mixed with hot water to make coffee.

The concentrate can be stored in a refrigerator and used to make one cup at a time if you so desire. This method makes for extremely low-acid coffee, which is recommended for coffee drinkers with stomach conditions.

Featured Products: Storage

How you store your freshly roasted coffee can mean the difference between a deliciously brewed cup with amazing flavor and a bland cup that just doesn't satisfy. Keep your home-brewed coffee tasting as fresh as when it first arrived on your doorstep with the proper storage solution.

Once coffee beans are roasted, their freshness immediately begins to decline. If the beans are also ground, the freshness degrades even faster. Air, light, and moisture work to make your coffee taste weak and flavorless. To keep your coffee as fresh as possible, consider keeping it in a coffee vault to retain that delicious coffee taste.

There are many misconceptions about the best way to store and maintain roasted coffee.
