Laura® Soybean Coffee
Just made a great cup of Laura® soybean soy coffee. It's simple and smells delicious plus the taste is great! Naturally non gmo, caffeine free and homemade. As someone who can't have a lot of caffeine in my diet this is a great alternative to coffee. Top it off with your favorite creamer or just use homemade Laura® soymilk and a bit of sweetener and you are good to go with a quick and easy cup.
I started with one (1) cup of unsoaked Laura® Beans. I rinsed the Laura® beans in a strainer.
Next I took the Laura® beans and spread them out in a single layer on a perforated pizza pan.
I set the oven for 420F (if you have a convection oven, use the convection setting).
Then bake the rinsed Laura® beans on the cookie sheet for 28 minutes until they are dark brown. If you are using a non-convection oven, you may want to stir them about every 9 minutes.
Let them cool.
To grind you can either use a coffee grinder on coarse setting or you can also use a food processor and pulse until the cooked Laura® beans are coarsely ground. (you don't want any large chunks of beans left).
I then used 1 tablespoon of grounds in the filter for every cup of coffee I brewed, you can experiment for your personal tastes.
