"My husband and I love to get gourmet coffees from the coffee shop but the price keeps it from being a regular treat. This recipe is an easy at home alternative. We both really loved it!"

Reviewed Mar. 8, 2010

"I really enjoyed this coffee, but when making the coffee, I used a "medium roasted" coffee rather than dark roasted, and the brand I used was, Folger's Gourmet Selections Lively Columbian Medium Roast. I also cut the

recipe in half, but did add about 3/4 to 1 tsp of the vanilla extract. Be sure this coffee is good and hot when serving, as the whipped cream does cool down the coffee somewhat.
For all those coffee lovers out there, I highly recommend this recipe. This is one coffee others will certainly enjoy. "Thank you" Bernice for sharing this recipe. It's a keeper!!"
