This time around, Jake is sharing a recipe for Vanilla Infused Coffee. A little something that will take the bitterness of the coffee away and add a nice taste and fragrance of vanilla to it!

The other day a friend of mine made some coffee. When I took my first sip I was caught by a bit of surprise as it had a very good vanilla flavor to it. Not overly strong but just enough to take the bitterness away from the coffee. He is not a much of a coffee drinker and does not really like how plain coffee tastes so this was his little trick to give it some little flavor. So I thought I would jump on here as a guest foodie and share it with TFK readers. Kick back and enjoy this coffee!
Vanilla Infused Coffee
Recipe tip by Jake Van Ness
12 oz water
2 tablespoon of ground coffee
¼ teaspoon of vanilla extract
whipped cream, for serving
- Fill your coffee filter with the amount of coffee you want to serve.
- Add the ¼ teaspoon of vanilla extract on top of it. You can add more if you want a stronger vanilla flavor or less if you want it to be a little more subtle. Start with a small amount and experiment each time with a little more. It doesn’t take much to flavor de coffee, so be careful.
- Close the lid and start your machine.
- Add a bit of whipping cream on the top for a little extra! As I know a few of our readers are in the warmer areas, to make vanilla ice coffee all you need to do is to turn off the pot and let it sit for a bit to cool off. Then fill your glass with ice, milk and sugar pouring the coffee over the ice.
