Deliciously rich, homemade Coffee Extract is a handy and delicious addition to your kitchen pantry!
Servings: 1 cup
- ¼ cup whole, fresh coffee beans
- 1 cup vodka
Lightly crush or crack the coffee beans using a rolling pin or mortar and pestle. Transfer the beans to a small jar with a tight fitting lid. Add the vodka and seal the jar. Place in a cool, dark location for at least a week, swirling or shaking daily to mix.
Strain the coffee extract to remove the crushed coffee beans. Discard the beans. Seal the extract and store in a cool, dark location.
1 teaspoon coffee extract = about 1 teaspoon espresso powder
Substitute coffee extract for vanilla extract in baked goods. It's great added to most chocolate recipes and enhances the chocolate flavor.
