This was a lovely flavorful coffee. I really enjoyed the addition of the coconut. I used canned coconut cream & milk. and my favorite bold Kona coffee with this recipe. It was delicious. I garnished with whipped cream and a cherry for a really decadent feel. Thank you so much for sharing. :)

This was amazingly smooth coffee! I was also amazed as to how easy it is to get the coconut meat out of the coconut. In the past I have always struggled with that problem. This recipe was made for the comfort Cafe's Jan. '09 tag game.
