This drink is wonderful! I've made it several times now, and it just keeps tasting better! I do however speed up the browning of the coconut. You can put your oven to 350 and the cooking time is greatly reduced. (Only takes about 6 to 7 minutes) You need to be careful and watch the coconut though! It darkens very quickly!
Heaven! thank you so much!! I made this for myself today for my birthday, I didn't feel like driving to the "very famous and widespread coffee establishment" today so this was great. How I did it: I didn't want to warm up the oven so I got a small non-stick skillet and put it over low heat, put the coconut in the pan and stirred it around until the coconut was toasted. I used a meduim roast non-bitter Sumatra coffee, I put enough for 12 cups of coffee but brewed only 1 and 1/2 cups. I like mine thick so I put about 2 2/3 cups ice in mine, and oh.. I don't know.. very likely 2/3 cup chocolate syrup :-) YUMM!! Thank you SO much! Can I live on this and this alone?
Great coffee and enjoyed the coconut flavor. I also toasted the coconut in a pan like one of the other reviewers mentioned, used 2 tablespoons of sugar, and doubled the amount of chocolate syrup. I didnt add the whipped cream this time but it would be a great topping. Will definitely be making this coffee again!
sipping on one right now as I type it's a different drink but very enjoyable. Give this one a shot
This is WONDERFUL! I was looking for a good excuse to have it for myself and was happy when my neighbor came to visit. I made it this evening with coffee leftover from the morning, which I imagine had gotten stronger. It was perfect! Loved the toasted coconut and the beautiful way it garnished the drink. I think it made us a little more than a serving each. Printing and passing the recipe on to my neighbor right now upon her request!
I made this as soon as I got home from work last night. The hardest part was cooling down the coffee. Seemed to take forever even though I stuck it in the freezer to speed up the process. Still took a good 1/2 hour. While I was waiting for the cool down, I roasted the coconut but on top of the stove in a dry frying pan. Worked well. I finally got everything into the blender. I enjoyed the drink but didn't like the coconut. Next time I will add coconut flavour and not the real stuff. But this was still very refreshing. Thanks so much !
A decadent treat! It tastes like something you would enjoy at a posh island resort. Delicious! For the chocolate syrup, I highly recommend you making your own using Chocolate Syrup.
Yummmy! Thanks for giving me a new recipe for coffee that includes coconut! I loved the addition of coconut but preferred it blended in the drink and not as a garnish. I may also try using coffee icecubes next time - I like my drinks strong! Thanks for sharing this wonderful treat!
