how to make coffee macarons

Ingredients: For the macaron shells:

  • 150g ground almonds

  • 150g powdered sugar

  • 100g egg whites (about 3 large eggs)

  • 50g granulated sugar

  • 1 tsp instant coffee powder

For the coffee buttercream filling:

  • 100g unsalted butter, room temperature

  • 200g powdered sugar

  • 1 tsp instant coffee powder

  • 2 tsp milk


  1. In a food processor, grind the almonds and powdered sugar together until fine. Sift the mixture through a fine mesh sieve to remove any lumps.

  2. In a separate bowl, beat the egg whites until foamy. Gradually add the granulated sugar and continue to beat until stiff peaks form.

  3. Fold in the coffee powder into the almond mixture.

  4. Gently fold the almond mixture into the egg whites until the mixture becomes smooth and glossy.

  5. Transfer the mixture to a piping bag fitted with a round tip. Pipe small circles onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.

  6. Tap the baking sheet on the counter to release any air bubbles. Let the macaron shells sit at room temperature for about 30 minutes to form a skin.

  7. Preheat the oven to 300°F (150°C). Bake the macaron shells for about 15-20 minutes, or until they are firm to the touch.

  8. For the coffee buttercream filling, beat the butter until light and fluffy. Gradually add the powdered sugar, coffee powder, and milk and continue to beat until smooth.

  9. Once the macaron shells have cooled, pipe the coffee buttercream filling onto half of the shells. Sandwich them with the remaining shells.

  10. Let the macarons sit in the refrigerator for at least an hour before serving to allow the flavors to meld together.
