  • 12 slices thick cut smoked streaky bacon (use the best bacon you can get your hands on)
  • 1 shot espresso
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup
  • 2 tablespoons dark brown sugar


  • Preheat oven to 350°F / 175°C. Line a baking tray with parchment paper.
  • In a small bowl, mix together the espresso, maple syrup and dark brown sugar until combined and the sugar is mostly dissolved.
  • Lay out the bacon evenly across the pan.
  • Using a brush, brush on half of the maple and coffee glaze on the bacon. Only brush the maple and coffee glaze on one side of the bacon at this time.
  • Bake in the oven for 10 minutes. Remove the pan from the oven and turn the heat up to 400°F / 205°C.
  • Carefully, flip each slice of bacon over. Brush on the remaining maple and coffee glaze.
  • Put the pan back in the oven and bake for another 10-15 minutes.
  • Allow to cool slightly before removing the bacon from the pan.


If you don't have an espresso maker, you can also use this cold brew coffee concentrate.
