 Do you usually end a dinner party with dessert and coffee?  If you answered yes, you probably put a lot of thought into the dessert you will serve but just make a pot of black coffee to serve with cream and sugar. Nice, but boring. Next time you entertain try this caramel coffee.

Take your coffee, and your party, to the next level with this coffee shop copycat version. It couldn’t be easier to make for entertaining.

The creamy caramel melted into brewed black coffee is delicious and goes with just about any dessert. Is there a more natural combination than the caramel coffee served with an individual apple crisp? Chocolate cake served with the caramel coffee is also a delicious pairing.

Making caramel coffee couldn't be easier.

I have a Ninja coffee bar that lends itself to making coffee shop beverages but this is easy enough for any type of drip coffee maker.

This gourmet coffee isn’t only for dessert. Overnight guests will be delighted to wake up to caramel coffee to enjoy with a slice of overnight nutty coffee cake or chocolate chip chocolate muffins.

Want to mix it up? Use hazelnut flavored and you have hazelnut caramel coffee. The caramel paired with other flavors like pumpkin, French vanilla, chocolate, or cinnamon are also yummy combinations.

You can adjust this recipe for more or fewer servings by simply increasing or decreasing the caramel and the number of cups. Also, adjust the amount of caramel to your tastes as well.

Think about setting up a do-it-yourself station where your guests can choose flavors and make their own combinations. Your guests will be so impressed. Only you have to know how easy it is!

Easy and delicious caramel coffee.

      Ellen, I’ve been making this all week – thank you for the great idea! That little bit of caramel gives my plain black coffee a nice flavor, just a little sweet. Soo much better than a teaspoon of sugar!
