Peppermint White Chocolate Coffee Recipe + Death Wish Coffee Gift Ideas

Every year, when I start thinking about Christmas gifts, I start thinking about coffee. This year, I’ve got a new coffee brand to share with you: Death Wish Coffee.

Death Wish Coffee is marketed as the world’s strongest coffee, and it’s fair trade + 100% organic. You can find it online or in many grocery stores – I ran across it in my local grocery store, to my excitement.


So is Death Wish Coffee strong?

Yessss! Death Wish Coffee sent me three boxes of Kcups – medium roast, dark roast, and espresso roast. My husband immediately broke into the dark roast and brewed himself a cup. His response: “This is really good. Normally I brew my coffee on ‘strong,’ but this is that strength without having to brew on strong. Meaning, I can still make it stronger!”

He then asked how long it would take me to buy more, haha. So that’s a glowing review from him.


Ideas for Gifting Death Wish Coffee

I mean, a bag of coffee in itself is a gift. A fun thing to do: buy a bunch of bags or Kcup boxes, and anonymously drop them on your friends’ doorsteps. Believe me, they’ll thank you.

But another favorite way to gift coffee is also super simple: print out a cute recipe card with a fun coffee drink, and attach it to the box with ribbon or a bow. Done and done!

Here’s my current go-to drink: a peppermint coffee with white chocolate foam on top. Holiday perfection for sure.

Peppermint White Chocolate Coffee

This is the way I make my coffee most mornings, when I’ve got a couple of minutes. I brew a cup (or 2) of coffee. I love using Death Wish Espresso Roast Coffee for this recipe, because the strength of it means it doesn’t get a watered-down taste.

Then I stir about a 1/2 tablespoon of peppermint coffee sauce into the coffee.

I use my cold foam maker to make foam to top my coffee. In the cold foam maker, I add about 1/2 cup of half-and-half or milk or cream; whatever’s on hand. Half-and-half makes the best foam in my maker; just experiment with yours. Squeeze a drizzle of white chocolate sauce in, and then press the lid on and push start.

Drizzle half of the foam on your coffee. Save the other half for a second coffee, or if you’ve got kids like me, your kids will probably beg for their own little cup of “calf-and-half.” Camden LOVES it, so I never have enough left for a second cup.

Add a candy cane or some crushed peppermint candy pieces to the coffee for a festive look. Plus, it melts into the coffee and adds an extra peppermint kick. Delish!

Here’s a handy little recipe card you can print off to include on the front of your coffee gift!
