The Festive Blonde Bliss – a Year-Round Christmas Coffee
Woo hoo! It’s day 26 of spillinthebeans.com’s 30 Days of Christmas Coffees! Today, we’re unveiling a special holiday treat that’ll warm your heart and taste buds: the Festive Blonde Bliss. This delightful creation combines the magic of Blonde Roast coffee with festive spices and sweet notes to bring you a cup of holiday joy.
But the beauty of this recipe is that it works year-round. You can even pour it over ice for a light, flavorful iced coffee that’s just as good when it’s 102° as 22°.
Let’s Talk About Blonde Roast
You might know that Blonde Roast coffee is known for its light and approachable flavor profile. It’s roasted for a shorter time than darker roasts, allowing the beans to retain more of their natural characteristics. The result is a cup of coffee that’s bright, mellow, and has a subtle acidity. Blonde Roast is perfect for those who prefer a gentler coffee experience without sacrificing complexity.
Blonde Roast serves as an excellent canvas for a variety of flavors, making it an ideal choice for crafting festive holiday drinks. In the case of our Festive Blonde Bliss, we’ve carefully selected complementary ingredients to enhance the natural notes of the Blonde Roast.

- 1/8 tsp nutmeg
- 1/4 tsp vanilla extract
- 2 Tbsp maple syrup

- Add the cinnamon and nutmeg to the coffee grounds before brewing
- Brew the blonde roast coffee and spices with 1 cup of water using your favorite method (French press, pour-over, drip…)
- Pour the hot coffee into a large mug leaving 1/3 space at the top for the frothed milk
- Add the maple syrup and vanilla to the brewed coffee, and stir well
- Heat your preferred milk in the microwave for about 20-30 seconds just until steaming (you can also use a small saucepan on the stove)
- Froth the milk until creamy using a handheld (or other frother) – if you don't have one, you can use a whisk but it'll take a bit longer
