Cinnamon Hazelnut Coffee Simmer Pot

We’re sharing how to make a cinnamon hazelnut coffee simmer pot today!

Nearly every time I get ready to have people over, I ask myself the same basic questions.

What do you want this experience to…

  • look like?
  • smell like?
  • sound like?
  • taste like?
  • feel like? 

It might sound kind of silly to run through those questions for a simple dinner party or celebration.

But they help me get unstuck and create a more well-rounded experience each and every time.

Vintage Holiday Birthday Party-The Crowned Goat

Recently, we had so much fun hosting my vintage holiday birthday party.

My original goal was to have the entire house smell like a bookstore.

I love the intoxicating scent of book pages, coffee, and baked goods.

But we ran short on time.

And at the last minute I simply had to light a candle and call it good.

The day after the party, I was putting together all the photos and decided to create the cinnamon hazelnut coffee simmer pot anyway.

It smelled so good, I wanted to share the recipe in case you have a cozy dinner party or a celebration coming up sometime soon too.  

This cinnamon hazelnut coffee simmer pot doesn’t take long to make at all, yet it fills the entire house with the beautiful aroma of a bookstore bakery.

Here’s a look at how to create a cinnamon hazelnut coffee simmer pot…

Cinnamon Hazelnut Coffee Simmer Pot Supplies:

  • Cinnamon Hazelnut Whole Bean Coffee (we bought ours at Fresh Market)
  • Cinnamon Sticks (we used two)
  • Vanilla Extract (we used a dash)
  • Pot
  • Measuring Cup
  • Water

Creating a Cinnamon Hazelnut Coffee Simmer Pot…

We use a small sauce pot for our simmer pot creations.

But you can also use a crock pot, or large stock pot depending on how much you want to make.

Place the cinnamon hazelnut coffee beans into your pot.

The amount of coffee beans you will need will depend on the size of your pot.

We used around 1/3 cup for our small pot.

Next add your cinnamon sticks (we used two), followed by a dash of vanilla extract.

Again, the number of cinnamon sticks and the amount of vanilla extract you will need will ultimately depend on the size of your pot.

Finally, add water to your simmer pot.

We filled ours about ¾ of the way full.

Keep in mind, you’ll need enough water so that your coffee beans don’t burn.

But not so much water the ingredients spill out during the boiling process.

Heating the Contents of Your Simmer Pot…

Bring the contents of your simmer pot to a boil.

Then turn the heat down to low.

Allow the contents to simmer for a few hours, add water as needed and fill your home with the sweet scent of coffee and baked goods.

As always, use caution and care as water and simmer pot contents will be hot.

Do not allow the simmer pot contents to burn dry.

An Easy Alternative to Candles…

What we love most about simmer pots like these is that they’re an easy alternative to candles.

Especially during allergy season when candles simply aren’t an option for a lot of us.

I also love how the ingredients can be customized to fit your own personal tastes.

For example, you don’t have to necessarily use cinnamon hazelnut beans to make a coffee simmer pot like this one.

You can use whatever whole coffee beans you like best.

We also love French Vanilla, Toasted Coconut and Donut Shop flavored coffee beans.

While we’ll be creating this cinnamon hazelnut coffee simmer pot throughout the year, now is an especially fun time of year to create simmer pots like these.

Afterall, it’s cozy season.
