- To make the paste, boil the almonds and remove the peel. Once they are cold and somewhat dry, put them in a food processor or a blender and chop them finely.
- Put the chopped almonds in a bowl, add the zest of the two lemons, the sugar, the ground coffee and the cocoa powder. Mix everything very well.
- Add the egg whites and mix until the egg whites dilute the sugar and the mixture becomes a paste.
- Take a lump of mixture in your hand, roll it into a ball the size slightly smaller than a golf ball.
- Roll the ball completely into the sugar and place it on a baking sheet.
- Slightly insert a coffee bean on top of each cookie.
- Roll all your cookies and bake them for 15 mins. at 350F.
