Our twist on  English Coffee Toffee

Indulge in the perfect blend of rich, buttery toffee with a subtle kick of invigorating coffee flavor in our English Coffee Toffee. This irresistible treat takes the timeless charm of traditional English toffee and elevates it with the bold essence of instant coffee. Each bite promises a harmonious fusion of sweet and robust, delivering a delightful experience for your taste buds.

Crafted with care, our English Coffee Toffee is a testament to the artistry of combining premium ingredients. The buttery toffee base, expertly cooked to the ideal texture, meets the aromatic infusion of  our 1936 Torrefacto instant coffee, creating a confection that is both sophisticated and comforting.

English toffee with a hint of i1936 coffee adds a delightful twist to this classic treat. Here's a recipe for Coffee-infused English Toffee:


1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter
1 cup granulated sugar
1 tablespoon 1936 Torrefacto Original Classic instant coffee
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup semi-sweet or dark chocolate chips
1 cup finely chopped nuts (such as almonds or pecans), optional

Prepare a Baking Sheet:
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat. Set aside.

Melt Butter:
In a heavy-bottomed saucepan over medium heat, melt the butter.

Add Sugar and Coffee:
Stir in the granulated sugar, 1936 instant coffee granules, and salt. Continue to stir constantly until the mixture reaches a boil.

Cook to Hard Crack Stage:
Attach a candy thermometer to the side of the pan. Cook the mixture, stirring occasionally, until it reaches the hard crack stage (about 300°F or 150°C). This usually takes about 10-15 minutes.

Add Vanilla:
Remove the pan from heat, and quickly stir in the vanilla extract. Be cautious, as the mixture will bubble.

Pour onto Prepared Baking Sheet:
Immediately pour the toffee onto the prepared baking sheet, spreading it into an even layer with a spatula.

Melt Chocolate:
In a microwave-safe bowl or using a double boiler, melt the chocolate chips until smooth.

Spread Chocolate:
Pour the melted chocolate over the toffee layer, spreading it evenly with a spatula.

Optional: Add Nuts:
If using nuts, sprinkle them evenly over the chocolate layer, pressing them lightly into the chocolate.

Cool and Break into Pieces:
Allow the toffee to cool completely. Once set, break it into bite-sized pieces.

Store the coffee-infused English toffee in an airtight container at room temperature.
