Top Review by Jostlori

Oh. Yeah. Wow, this is a potent java! Living in the sticks here, I did have to use what I have... Power was out, so I made the coffee nice and strong in a traditional Costa Rican drip bag (using awesome Costa Rican coffee grown right up the mountain from us!). Can't get Kahlua, but used a locally produced coffee liqueur. And Swiss Miss? Forget it, made my own with cocoa powder and powdered milk. No problem! Sitting here, watching a huge rain and thunderstorm roll in from the sea, but I'm nice and snug here with my amazing java. Thanks for posting! Made for Culinary Quest 2014.
