Coffee Recipes

I have the second thought of posting coffee recipes here since its not that much of really a Filipino origin. However, since most of the Filipinos love coffee ( including me ) I opt to have this recipe from you from one of my subscriptions, Pat!

Basic Iced Coffee
To brew a pot of delicious iced coffee, use 3 ounces of quality coffee per 64 ounces of water. (The coffee-to-water ratio can be adjusted for taste, different types of brewing equipment, and pot size.) Final yield will be approximately 60 ounces of brewed coffee. Allow coffee to cool after brewing. Keep it refrigerated if not to be used within two hours. Keep it covered to retain freshness.

Coffee Tropicale on Ice
Brew 1-1/2 cups of espresso or dark roast coffee. Fill blender half full with cracked ice. Add coffee and 1 teaspoon sugar, blending until thick and frothy. Pour into tall glasses, adding more ice if desired. Makes four servings.

Thai Iced Coffee
Make some extra strong coffee with 6 to 8 tablespoons dark roast and 1/2 cup boiling water. Mix with 2 tsp. sweetened condensed milk and pour over ice. Individual serving.

Coffee Float

2 1/2 cups strong coffee
2 teaspoons sugar
2/3 cup cream
4 scoops of coffee flavored ice cream
1 large bottle of Coke

Sweeten coffee with sugar, and chill. Mix coffee and cream. Fill 4 glasses half full. Add one scoop of ice cream to each glass. Top with coke. Makes four servings.


Recipe ideas can be great with love and care felt while cooking. I can't imagine how much my love one's will love this dish!
