Coffee Julep Recipe

Coffee Julep

This is a creamy, delicious recipe created by Houndstooth’s Coffee Educator and Trainer Daniel Read that coffee lover’s will love.

It’s a refreshing coffee julep that consists of espresso with the crema skinned off, vanilla and Pellegrino, topped off with ice and fresh muddled mint. It’s an interesting take on the standard cup of joe and it’s just in time for Derby season!
