This was, as the recipe states, an extremely intense coffee flavor -- almost too much so. I imagine it would change with the beans you used and mixed and how long you roasted the beans for. I think if I made it again, I would use some Mocha and regular coffee. However, I have a Kitchen Aid ice cream maker and I couldn't get this recipe to "expand" much so I won't be making it again. I made the recipe as noted and chilled overnight. I will note that what ice cream I did get made, it was very smooth, but extremely hard (and it's not from my freezer temp). This was good...but my search continues. Thanks for sharing.
While labour intensive, this ice cream is decadent!!! I found this recipe off the internet years ago and used it to make a Coffee Toffee Ice Cream Tart. Although the tart was very simple, it was definately memorable! Thanks for doing the posting...saved me from typing the recipe out!!!
Although I haven't completed the whole recipe yet, I feel I need to say !!!CAUTION!!!CAUTION!!! DO NOT use ground beans in this recipe! Follow the recipe as listed. If you must use ground coffee beans, you MUST use a small mesh infuser or muslin to maintain the integrity of the custard in this recipe! Good luck.
This was simply wonderful. I made it for our fathers day menu and it was beyond words. I just bought an ice cream maker and this was my second recipe to try. Thanks again Meanie for yet another keeper!
Mean Chef, we made this this weekend for guests and it was to die for. Loved it MEANIE!
Excellent recipe!! Silly me, I forgot to cut back on the coffee even after reading duke8888's review 'coz I used ground coffee also and it was definitely a bit bitter. However, I added more sugar in the end to make it sweeter. Next time I'll cut back on the coffee though. Nonetheless it was excellent!! Thanks for a keeper Mean!
Very intense and extraordinarily good indeed! Perfect texture, perfect everything. Well, maybe a little fiddly, but well woth the effort.
I love this ice cream! You know your coffe ice cream and you were right I would like this. I will most certainly be making this again. And the texture is wonderful.
This recipe Rocks! Although I confess I used ground coffee and it came out a little on the bitter side. But it was definitely very very good. I also added some Crushed heath bar's for the last 3 minutes in the ice cream machine, which was excellent (coffee heath bar crunch is my favorite ice cream) I also tried with chocolate chunks but it didn’t do it for me although I confess it may have been the chocolate, it was not the best stuff.
