Coffee Butter is a wonderful butter spread, with the flavor of cafe au lait and just a hint of sweetness. The tannins of the coffee pair perfectly with red wines and meats.

- pinch of salt
- 2 tbsps neutral oil such as grape seed (do not use olive or coconut oil
In a small pot, mix together all incredients EXCEPT whipping cream. cook on medium until sugar and espresso are dissolved, stirring constantly.
