  1. This was tasty, even if rum is not my favorite liquor. I made mine into ice coffee, as written. I'll add a little more sugar next time. I only used 1/2 teaspoon since I did not want it to sweet. Made for team Soup-A-Stars during ZWT9 2013
  2. Son of a gun, that was hot stuff! Made as written, except that I reduced the rum to one tablespoon - I don't do well with coffee and alcohol in the same cup. As my coconut cream and whipped cream aren't sweetened, I used 1 1/2 teaspoons sugar and it was perfect for me. Thanks for sharing this treat!<br/>Made for ZWT 9 / Coffee Challenge for the Caribbean for The Apron String Travelers
  3. I thoroughy enjoyed this coffee this morning as a treat, adjusting the ingredients to my needs. I did scale the recipe down for one person. Loved the allspice and coconut cream. :D Made for ZWT 2013 Coffee Challenge for the Caribbean. Thanks!
  4. Wow, another winner from Annacia the Coffee Queen. I really enjoyed this tasty treat. Made exactly as written but scaled it down for one. I did add additional sugar, I like my coffee sweet. Loved the way the coconut cream, whipped cream and allspice blended with the rum and coffee. It was superb . I even used the last of my Blue Mountain Coffee the kids brought back from Jamaica for me. Will have to ask them to pick up more, so that I can make this again. Thanks so much for sharing this memorable coffee my friend.
  5. I love coffee and I love rum. It combined well here. I used less sugar because I don't like my coffee too sweet. I really like the spice addition. All I had in the fridge was a non-dairy whipped topping, which I used. It all worked out well. Thanks for creating! Made for the team Soup-A-Stars during ZWT9 in the Express Weekend #2.
