BYOB : Black Tuxe Macchiato 

July 24, 2020


This macchiato is all about using a classic flavor pairing, vanilla and rosemary to bring out the deep chocolate undertones in the Black Tuxe Ethiopian roast. It’s Luxe. It’s Sophisticated. It’s Sweet.

Vanilla Syrup Ingredients 

½ cup water

½ cup granulated sugar

3 teaspoons vanilla extract 

Rosemary Syrup Ingredients 

⅔ cup water

⅔ cup granulated sugar 

2 teaspoons dried rosemary 

Rosemary Whipped Cream Ingredients 

1 cups heavy whipping cream 

2.5 tablespoons rosemary syrup 

Macchiato Ingredients 

1, 3 ounce Black Tuxe ice cube 

2 ounces Black Tuxe roast chilled

5 ounces Almond milk 

1 ounce vanilla syrup, .5 oz rosemary syrup 


Flaky Salt 

Monin Dark Chocolate Sauce* (optional)

Special Equipment

Chicago French Press silicone ice cube mold, mesh strainer, hand mixer, sandwich bag 

Brew : Do ahead; using your preferred brewing method make 3 cups of coffee (6 tablespoons Black Tuxe Roast : 18 oz water) as recommended in the CFP Brewing Guide, let cool. 

Evenly distribute coffee into ice mold, about 3 oz per cube and freeze until solid, about 6 hours. For best results let set overnight. Store remaining coffee in an airtight container or glass jar; keep chilled to use later.  

Vanilla Syrup

Combine warm water, sugar and vanilla extract in a jar. Cover and shake until sugar is dissolved. Keep chilled until ready to use. 

Rosemary Infused Whipped Cream & Macchiato

  1. In a small saucepan bring water to a boil on medium heat. Add dried rosemary, reduce heat and simmer, stirring occasionally until mixture becomes fragrant and water has an amber tint, 5 mins. Remove from heat and let cool. 

  1. Using a mesh strainer, filter liquid into a glass jar pressing gently on rosemary to release excess water. Add sugar to the jar, cover and shake until sugar is dissolved. Set aside. 

  1. Whisk heavy cream in a medium mixing bowl, gradually adding 2.5 tablespoons of rosemary syrup until soft peaks appear. Store in a container. Refrigerate until ready to use. 

  1. Pour 1 oz vanilla syrup,  .5 oz rosemary syrup, and almond milk into a glass. Fill glass ¾ of the way with ice along with 1 Black Tuxe ice cube. Add 2 oz of chilled Black Tuxe roast on top. 

  1. Spoon about ⅔ cup rosemary infused whipped cream into a sandwich bag; cut ½ inch from a corner and gently squeeze cream on macchiato, in a circular motion. Finish by drizzling dark chocolate sauce, if you’re feeling fancy and a sprinkle of flaky salt (a must). Enjoy! 

Special Note : Don’t let your rosemary syrup and whipped cream go to waste. Add .5- 1 oz of it to one of these Chicago French Press roast : Peach Nectar, Lemon Brulee, Coconut Creme, Original Blend and up your coffee game.
