  • acorns
  • water filtered


  • Boil the acorns for 20 mins approx.
  • After cooling them, remove the outer shell and cut or process them till you get small pieces.
  • Roast the pieces for 35-40 mins at 400 F, till they become dark brown in color while stirring them occasionally.
  • Process the roasted acorns or use a coffee grinder for the same.
  • Your acorn coffee powder is ready. Use 1 tbsp for every 6 oz of water for the best taste. Enjoy!
