    Cinnamon Lattes
    Makes two 16 ounce servings

    2 cups filtered water
    4 tablespoons coffee grounds, fine grind
    2 cups almond milk, plain
    1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
    2 teaspoons raw honey

    Place the coffee grounds in the filter of your Chemex or other pour-over device (or brew using a machine with the 2 cups of water — we've been using this handy single brew pot). Bring the water to a boil and pour over the grounds slowly in a circular motion. Bring the almond milk to a low simmer in a saucepan on the stove, over low heat. Transfer the milk and brewed coffee to a blender, and add the cinnamon and honey. 

    Leaving the lid off of the blender, turn it on low (if your blender does not have a low setting, skip this step and whisk together in the pan instead - it will not be frothy, but will still taste delicious). Let the blender mix and froth the lattes for 10 to 20 seconds. Pour into two mugs and serve hot. 

    Chocolate Hazelnut Spread
    Makes one 16 ounce jar

    3 cups raw hazelnuts
    1/4 teaspoon fine sea salt
    1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
    1/4 teaspoon ground vanilla beans
    2 tablespoons raw cacao powder (or unsweetened cocoa)
    2 tablespoons coconut sugar

    Preheat the oven to 300F. Place the hazelnuts on a parchment lined baking sheet and toast for 20 minutes. Let cool to the touch, and then transfer the hazelnuts to a towel in batches. Fold the towel in half and roll the hazelnuts to help remove some of their skins. Transfer to the bowl of a food processor when done. (You can also rub the hazelnuts between your hands if you are like us and always make a mess of the towel.) 

    Add the remaining ingredients to the food processor with the hazelnuts and blend. You may need to stop and scrape down the sides to keep the mixture spinning, but it will begin to come together and turn into a paste after 5 to 8 minutes (depending on the strength of your processor). Once it has reached a thick, spreadable consistency — stop the blender. Serve right away, or transfer to an airtight jar and store in the fridge until ready to use. 

    Spread on a piece of toast and serve with your latte: instant cozy!
