DIRECTIONS

  • Combine milk and ground coffee in a medium saucepan and bring to a low simmer.
  • Cook for 20 minutes.
  • After 20 minutes, remove the milk from the heat and let stand for 30 minutes (you can also refrigerate it overnight).
  • Strain the milk through a fine-meshed strainer.
  • Heat until bubbling, then cover to keep hot and remove from heat.
  • Blend sugar and egg yolks in a blender or food processor until thick and smooth.
  • Gradually add the hot milk until the mixture is combined.
  • Pour the mixture into a saucepan and cook over medium heat until the mixture thickens and will coat the back of a spoon (about 6-8 minutes; be sure to stir constantly).
  • Remove the pan from heat and place in a bowl of ice water; stir until mixture is cool (about 2 minutes).
  • Cover and refrigerate until the mixture is completely cool (probably at least 2 hours).
  • Whip the cream until soft peaks form and fold into cooled custard mixture.
  • Freeze in an ice-cream maker; for a silky texture, you should use less salt and a slower churning speed (fast, cold churning can make a gelato coarse).
  • Serve with whipped cream and chocolate-covered coffee beans for garnish.
