You’ll never believe how easy it is to make this rosemary coffee. You really just need a sprig of fresh rosemary that will infuse the coffee as the hot water runs over it.

It’s such an easy coffee hack that tastes amazing too!

Potential Health Benefits

  • Rosemary itself is a superfood. It contained the antioxidants caffeic acid and rosmarinic acid, as well as other nutritional benefits. Rosemary has also been studied for its ability to increase memory.
  • For this recipe, I generally use fresh rosemary, but you can also use dried rosemary leaves. 
  • And, to be clear, you don’t actually consume any rosemary in this recipe, but the oils from the rosemary get released as the hot water runs over it, infusing the coffee with rosemary flavor.

Recipe Steps

This is a very easy coffee recipe that is a great way to add extra nutrition to your morning cup of joe. 

Step One

To start, just place a fresh sprig at the bottom of your coffee filter. Then, add your ground coffee (I recommend always using fair-trade, organic coffee beans that you grind yourself).

See my list of the best organic coffee brands.

Step Three

Serve your coffee and enjoy hot!

This health upgrade couldn’t be easier! I’m sure you’re wondering how this Rosemary Coffee tastes? I wasn’t sure if it would be too strong even though I love the flavor and odor of rosemary.

Can you use decaffeinated coffee for this recipe?

Yes, absolutely!

Can I use dried rosemary for this recipe?

Yes, you can. I would recommend using 1 tablespoon of dried rosemary leaves per batch.
