  • 1 shot brewed Muraho Espresso Blend or Meza Morning Blend


  1. Mix the icing and powdered sugar together until there are no lumps
  2. If thicker icing is desired, add more powdered sugar
  3. If thinner icing is desired, add more coffee
  4. Set to the side


  • 1 TBSP Cinnamon, ground
  • 5 TBSP Butter, unsalted
  • 2 Cups packed brown sugar

  1. Heat the whole milk to 110ºF and combine with the dry yeast and sugar A  in a mixing bowl
  2. Sprinkle the bread flour A over the mixture in an even layer and let it sit for 10-15 minutes  until cracks form on the surface
  3. Add the whole eggs, butter, bread flour B, salt and sugar B and mix with a stand mixer with a dough hook on medium speed for 6-8 minutes
  4. Leave the dough in a warm place for 1 hour or until the dough has doubled in size
  5. After, press down the dough and shape into a rectangle approximately 12 x 15” in size
  6. Lightly covered the dough with plastic wrap and freeze for an hour, then transfer it to the fridge for 30 minutes before the final roll and shaping


  • Roll the dough out to ¼”, keeping it in a rectangular form
  • Spread the filling over the dough in a thin, even layer
  • Roll the dough in tight coil along the length
  • Cut the dough into 1-inch slices
  • For larger rolls, place individual rolls on a baking pan for about 30 minutes to 1 hour before placing in the oven

  • Glaze cinnamon rolls and enjoy

Jeremiah’s Coffee of Choice for the Coffee-Iced Cinnamon RollsMuraho Espresso Blend

Muraho Espresso Blend – Allows the senses to indulge in the sweetness of nature by focusing on those found in both fruit and flower. Once ground, this coffee draws on the soft floral fragrance of lavender and, upon brewing, blossoms into the syrupy fullness of apricot.
