Wave3 Artisanal Coffee Sugar Cookie Recipe

I stumbled upon these delicious looking coffee sugar cookies from I Am Baker on Pinterest, and knew I had to try them! I almost felt guilty using up some of my new favorite coffee from Wave3, but as I only had to “sacrifice” 2 tablespoons, and the cookies were super yummy, I figured it was well worth it.

coffee sugar cookies

  • 1 cup butter softened 
  • 1 1/4 cups granulated sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tbsp. fresh ground coffee (I used Wave3’s Organic Artisanal Smooth Dark Roast)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt (I used kosher)


  1. In a mixer, cream together butter and sugar.
  2. In a small bowl, combine eggs, vanilla, and coffee until fully incorporated.
  3. In separate bowl add together flour, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt.
  4. Slowly add your egg mixture to the butter mixture until well combined. Slowly add flour mixture until fully combined, do not over beat.
  5. Chill this dough for at least one hour, preferably overnight.
  6. When you are ready to bake, preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  7. Roll out dough on floured solid surface to about 1/2 inch thick. Using a circle cookie cutter, punch out circles and place on a parchment lined baking sheet.
  8. Bake for 8-10 minutes, or until edges are slightly golden. Allow cookies to cool completely before covering in any icing.
I am usually a coffee snob, and therefore very picky about my brand choice. I drink my coffee the way it should be: dark, hot and black, so there aren’t any creamers or sugars to cover up a bad bean. This Wave3 Artisanal Coffee is awesome! It has a rich and bold flavor, without being overpowering or bitter – something that’s usually impossible in a dark roast. There is also a very slight hint of sweetness that makes for a really pleasant sip, which was a pleasant surprise. I love that Wave3’s coffee is a superfood and has so many health benefits (see below) – I’ll take another cup (or two) please!

From Wave3:

ROASTED IN AMERICA: Wave3 is locally roasted in the USA one small batch at a time. We dark roast hand-selected beans to perfection in our proprietary “Third wave coffee roaster.” Daily deliveries through Amazon fulfillment assure the best tasting coffee for you, your family or as coffee gifts.
CERTIFIED ORGANIC: Every single Wave3 bean is USDA Certified Organic, Fair Trade & Sustainably-grown. Brew up a pot or cup in your favorite coffee maker, coffee dripper, percolator, coffee pot, coffee press, hario kettle or coffee Syphon. (Hario v60 filters, SterlingPro, Tanors Ceramic etc)
THIRD WAVE QUALITY: This gourmet french roast style coffee is sensually delightful. Robust yet smooth. A kick ass aroma, perfectly balanced acidity (not flat, low acid), rich textured, full-bodied coffee that’s guaranteed to be the best “cup of Joe” you’ll ever taste.
MORNING NOON & NIGHT: Caffeine? You bet, but it’s a pleasant wave of energy without the edginess of conventional coffee PLUS a nutritional kickstart for your body, mind & senses, anytime of the day… be it eight o’clock in the morning or a smooth evening fading to dark. This coffee tastes great in a facebook coffee mug, google coffee mug, cnn coffee mugs, fox news, travel, or any restaurant coffee mug.
SUPERFOOD COFFEE: Wave 3 coffee is a genuine superfood (see health benefits in description below). Perhaps we’re not famous (yet) like Starbucks, Keurig, Green Mountain Coffee, Coffee Bean Direct, San Francisco Bay, Lavazza, Death Wish, Stumptown, Gevalia, Community, Dunkin Donuts, Bulletproof Butter Coffee, Kicking Horse or other coffee shops, but as our growing coffee fans say: “Take One Sip, Count to 3, Ride the Wave!”

Top 7 Health Benefits of WAVE3 Coffee
 – According to Wikipedia, The Third Wave of Coffee refers to a current movement to produce high-quality coffee, where coffee is an artisanal foodstuff, like wine, rather than a commodity. Wave3 takes this concept even further by sourcing not only the best tasting coffee beans, but the most nutritionally superior as well.
 – WAVE3 contains essential nutrients including Riboflavin, Pantothenic Acid, Manganese, Potassium, Magnesium and Niacin. These nutrients occur naturally in WAVE3, remember we’re organic and nothing artificial is added.
 – WAVE3 improves energy levels and brain function. This includes memory, mood, vigilance, reaction times and general cognitive function. We think our customers are the smartest people in the world!
 – WAVE3 increases the burning of fat in your body while boosting your metabolic rate.
 – WAVE3 can drastically improve physical performance through increased adrenaline levels and release fatty acids from your fat tissues. Many WAVE3 fans enjoy a robust cup of WAVE3 about a half an hour before heading to the gym.
 – WAVE3 helps fight depression and makes you happier. No wonder WAVE3 coffee lovers are always smiling!
 – WAVE3 contains massive antioxidants. Drinking 3 cups daily could make WAVE3 the biggest source of Antioxidants in your diet… in the average American diet WAVE3 beats out the antioxidants of all fruits and vegetables… combined.

Even though it’s arguably one of the healthiest beverages on the planet, it’s the hypnotic WAVE3 aroma, the WAVE3 taste, and the WAVE3 experience that keeps coffee lovers and baristas around the world coming back for more.
