I made this recipe yesterday for the Revised Bargain Basement Game. It was pretty good, but I had to add more sugar as it was just too bitter by itself. Also, I didn't have any cheesecloth, so I lined a mesh strainer with a coffee filter, which was slow but it got a lot of the oil out of the coffee. I think I'll stick to my usual recipe for this, but thanks all the same!
