When I lived in the city, my favourite coffee house, use to sell this coffee, it was awesome. The beans are a little difficult to find, but well worth the effort. For a great cup of fresh brewed sipping coffee, it's best if the beans are ground, just prior to making the coffee. This recipe will make 1 lb Sunshine coffee blend, using Mocha Java & Ethiopia Limu beans. Make coffee to your preference. Mocha Java - Exotic with a slightly sweet flavor, smooth, clean, two dimensional, dry chocolate flavor, mild acidity, full body and rich aroma. Ethiopia Limu - Vibrant, balanced cup with sharp acidity, medium body, rich flavour and winy aftertaste.
- 1⁄2 lb mocha java coffee beans, not ground
- 1⁄2 lb ethiopia limu coffee beans, not ground
- 7 -8 ounces cold water
- 3 -4 tablespoons ground coffee, sunshine mixture (coffee beans listed above)
- 1 teaspoon white sugar
- 1 ounce 2% low-fat milk
- Mix the two types of coffee beans together and store in a container with a tight fitting lid.
- To ensure a great cup of coffee always use freshly ground beans and cold water.
- Prepare coffee to your personal preference and enjoy.
YUMMY! I am the coffee drinker in the house so I can play with the coffees any which way. I enjoued this coffee this morning. I could not find your specific brand but did come close with brands from the city's grocery store. I did buy whole bean so I could grind fresh each time. I made 4 cups LOL. I also used 1/2 and 1/2 creamer instead of milk and Truvia for the sugar. Lovely aroma and a great cuppa to wake up with. Thanl you. Made for Aus/NZ Swap #38
My local grocery store carries Brother's Gourmet coffee beans, and I used the two that matched the most for your description of the beans you are able to buy. My husband hates when I make flavored coffee, and of course did complain that morning, but he came back for seconds, so that is a huge thing for him to get seconds!! The mocha coffee beans smelled so strong, which is what I think my DH doesn't like about the flavored coffee beans, but when combined with the other non-mocha beans, it has a much more subtle flavor. The only thing I changed was to use a packet of Nutra Sweet in my coffee. Thanks for sharing a yummy new recipe that even my DH will drink!! Made for Photo Tag Game.
