Coffee flour is made by milling dried coffee cherry pulp and skins. One tablespoon of coffee flour contains 6 grams of fiber. The coffee cherries used to make coffee flour are a good source of plant-based antioxidants.
Coffee flour can be used at a 10-15 percent substitution rate. Keep in mind that the high fiber content will require the addition of about 10 to 25 percent more liquids into your recipe to keep your result moist and delicious.
Since the coffee cherries are normally disposed of as waste, using them to make coffee flour may be good for the environment and gives coffee bean farmers the opportunity to make new revenue.
It has a slightly fruity flavor.
It can be used in both sweet and savory recipes, including recipes for cookies, bread, pasta, and sauce. There are two coffee flour grinds: fine (for more typical baking uses) and powder (for confections or liquids like ice cream or dressings).
