  • In a medium saucepan, heat the cream, milk, and crushed coffee beans to just under a boil.

  • Pour the cream mixture into the egg yolks, whisking until well blended.
  • Return this mixture to the saucepan and cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until it thickens slightly, enough to coat the back of a wooden spoon.

    This was, as the recipe states, an extremely intense coffee flavor -- almost too much so. I imagine it would change with the beans you used and mixed and how long you roasted the beans for. I think if I made it again, I would use some Mocha and regular coffee. However, I have a Kitchen Aid ice cream maker and I couldn't get this recipe to "expand" much so I won't be making it again. I made the recipe as noted and chilled overnight. I will note that what ice cream I did get made, it was very smooth, but extremely hard (and it's not from my freezer temp). This was good...but my search continues. Thanks for sharing.

    While labour intensive, this ice cream is decadent!!! I found this recipe off the internet years ago and used it to make a Coffee Toffee Ice Cream Tart. Although the tart was very simple, it was definately memorable! Thanks for doing the posting...saved me from typing the recipe out!!!

    Although I haven't completed the whole recipe yet, I feel I need to say !!!CAUTION!!!CAUTION!!! DO NOT use ground beans in this recipe! Follow the recipe as listed. If you must use ground coffee beans, you MUST use a small mesh infuser or muslin to maintain the integrity of the custard in this recipe! Good luck.

    This was simply wonderful. I made it for our fathers day menu and it was beyond words. I just bought an ice cream maker and this was my second recipe to try. Thanks again Meanie for yet another keeper!
