I love coconut and decided to treat myself to this lovely coffee for Valentines Day. To make it more festive I used pink/orange/white coconut, which was toasted. I did enjoy this coffee but must agree with AZPARZYCH that the rum flavor was a little overpowering. Thank you for sharing your recipe SarahBeth.

This was ok, once I added to it...I originally made 1/2 the recipe, but once I added all the ingredients, there was too much rum extract! I then added more coffee and coconut/milk mix to the 1/2 recipe of rum extract and it was a little more subtle, but still strong for us. Made for Everyday Holiday.
