Preparing a good cup of coffee should be easy - you're simply combining ground beans with water until the brew is drinkable. But the variations in technique are almost infinite - and the quality depends on sure-handed knowledge.

Different coffee models will require different techniques, but here are a few helpful tips for all makes:

Coffee is perishable. Make a cup as soon as possible after opening the jar or packet.

Coffee can pick up odors. Maintain the unique taste by storing coffee in an air-tight container. To keep it fresh for even longer some people recommend you to put it in the fridge or freezer (others say never put the coffee in the fridge or freezer - the choice is really up to you!).

Measure the coffee and water accurately; two level teaspoons of coffee to six ounces water.

Be sure your coffee is fresh and your coffeemaker is clear. The lime deposits that build up in the pot can be removed with a strong solution of vinegar and water.

Choose the correct grind for your machine. Draw fresh water from the cold tap.

Hot water can pick up impurities in the pipes, and water that has been sitting loses its oxygenation. Make sure your water is hot, but not boiling, for the best mix of grind and water.

Remove the brew basket containing the grounds immediately. Don't keep the coffee in the brewer or on a hot plate for more than forty-five minutes.

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. (To brew extra-strength coffee, use an

additional amount of ground coffee with the same amount of water used for

regular-strength coffee.)


1/4 cup Instant Coffee

1/4 cup Sugar

1/4 cup Boiling Water

4 cups Milk

Mix together until coffee and sugar is dissolved. Add milk. Shake well. Using a blender or milk shake maker produces a very foamy drink. Serve in coffee mug.


2 tsp. Kahlua®


Mix together in a glass and chill before serving.


1 oz. Cream de Cacao

0.5 oz. Kahlua®

0.5 oz. Cherry Brandy


In a lowball glass, over ice, combine the liquors. Add cream to top off the mixture and stir.


6 oz. Coffee

2 oz. Bailey's Irish Cream®

2 oz. Kahlua®

Splash Frangelico

Pour coffee over crushed ice,or small ice cubes,in blender. Add all other ingredients and blend on high speed until desired consistency.

Caramel Fudge Latte

Its basically a latte, except its got equal amounts of espresso and caramel

fudge latte (not that weak Torani stuff). Best way to do this is put the caramel

into your dosing pitcher when dosing, then stir it up and pour it into either a

glass of hot milk (white or chocolate) or a glass of cold milk & ice. For some

reason it tastes real good with skim milk....the whole milk and caramel together

is almost too much. Of course you can also substitute some ice cream for the

milk and throw it all in a blender also. Without a doubt the tastiest espresso

drink of all time.

Coffee Milk Shake

Gives 1 Glass

Ingredients ice or ice cream as required sugar

˝-1 tblsp coffee essence/instant coffee powder cold milk

sparkling water. Sweeten with simple sugar syrup,* and stir gently. Serves


*Simple Sugar Syrup-Simmer together equal quantities of sugar and water

for about five minutes until sugar is dissolved. Cool. Store in a covered

jar in the refrigerator. This keeps indefinitely and is the best way to

sweeten coffee drinks.

Serves 8


2.5 cup black coffee - Brew a little bit stronger than you would usually

drink. (A personal-size coffee maker will make this much.)

2/3 cup milk

1.5 tbsp of brown sugar (darker is better)

5 tbsp of chocolate syrup

1/4 tsp of cinnamon

!Remember - cold and frozen is the name of the game! Brew the coffee and let it

freeze solid. Once it is frozen, put the milk, chocolate syrup, brown sugar, and

cinnamon into a blender. Blend ingredients until well mixed. Place the blender

into the freezer to chill. Do not let it freeze solid. Meanwhile, remove the

frozen coffee and chip it into small slivers. An ice shaver does this really

well. Take out the blender and add the shaved coffee to it. Blend the mixture

until it is completely blended. You may have to help the blender out by stirring

the top portion of the mix. Place blender back into freezer to chill some more.

Serves 2 large (drinking glass) servings, or 4 small (coffee mug) size servings.


1 or two teaspoons of instant coffee

sugar, water and ice cubes


Frappe coffee is widely consumed in parts of Europe and Latin America especially in summer. Originally it was made with cold espresso. Nowadays it is prepared in most places by shaking into a shaker 1-2 teaspoons of instant coffee with sugar, water and ice-cubes and it is served in a long glass with ice, milk to taste and a straw. The important thing is the thick froth on top of the glass

Frappe Mocha

3 or 4 cups of ice depending on consistency liked

2 shots of cappuccino (shot glass)

3 1/2 shots of Hersheys chocolate syrup

1/2 cup of 2% whole milk

Blend together until ice is liquefied.

Vietnamese Iced Coffee

2 to 4 tablespoons finely ground dark roast coffee (preferably with chicory)

2 to 4 tablespoons sweetened condensed milk (e.g., Borden Eagle Brand, not evaporated milk!)

Boiling water

Vietnamese coffee press

Ice cubes

Place ground coffee in Vietnamese coffee press and screw lid down on the grounds. Put the sweetened condensed milk in the bottom of a coffee cup and set the coffee maker on the rim. Pour boiling water over the screw lid of the press; adjust the tension on the screw lid just till bubbles appear through the water, and the coffee drips slowly out the bottom of the press.

When all water has dripped through, stir the milk and coffee together. You can drink them like this, just warm, but I prefer it over ice, as ca phe sua da. To serve it that way, pour the milk-coffee mixture over ice, stir, and drink as slowly as you can manage. I always gulp mine too fast.

Ice Cube Coffee

Brew coffee & let cool. Fill ice trays with coffee & freeze. (This is a great idea when you make a pot of coffee & have a good amount left over).

For Iced Coffee:

Fill cup with coffee ice cubes & pour over with freshly brewed coffee. Add milk & sugar to taste.

For Iced Cappuccino:

Follow above instructions. Replace milk with steamed milk.

For Dessert Shake:

Place ice cube coffee in blender & add 2 to 3 scoops of chocolate ice cream. Blend ingredients. Serve with whipped cream & chocolate shavings.

Start with making some strong coffee by brewing 6-7 oz. of coffee and then

pouring it back into your coffee maker and brewing it again. This may not be

good for some coffee makers. You will loose some water in the process, producing

4-5 oz. of coffee. I recommend French Vanilla or Crčme Brůlče for the coffee

flavors. Add the sugar, syrup, and the milk to the coffee; stir well. (I find

that this order works best.) Poor the coffee over the ice in a tall glass and

top with whipped cream or foamed milk; lastly, sprinkle a dash of cinnamon on

Chocolate Covered Espresso Beans!

1 bag of espresso beans

1 bag of nestle chocolate chips

1 sheet of wax paper

This is an easy recipe! Place the sheet of wax paper over a cookie sheet. Place

the espresso beans about 1/2 inch apart. Melt the chocolate either in a pan on

the stove or in a microwave safe dish in the microwave. Spoon the melted

chocolate over the beans and set them in the fridge to harden. Once they're

hard, eat 'em up as you like! They taste great as a topping for ice cream, or

just as candy.

***Suggestion*** -after the first layer of chocolate dries, put

on another coat, this gives you a thicker chocolate layer and tastes even
