I made this and MAN is it good! It’s a pretty strong coffee flavor – not mamby-pamby like store bought. It stayed VERY creamy even after a few days in the freezer. This is a keeper! I’m going to try adding some bourbon to it next time ;-)
Yay! I’m so glad you liked it Marianne!
I wanna use this recipe and would like to give my grandma some but she can’t eat anything with egg yolks. Is it okay to omit the yolks or is there a substitute ingredient? Would appreciate the help! :)
In your case, I’d say use another recipe formulated to be egg-free. Here’s a blog post with a recipe from Jeni’s Spendid Ice Creams in Columbus, Ohio. Nearly all of their recipes are egg-free, and they are all wonderful. Best of luck!
Thank you! I appreciate the help very much! :)
Awesome flavor. I used 8 O’clock and Starbucks medium coffee, both were big hits and can taste the difference in flavors. I didn’t change a thing, perfect recipe.
This turned out luscious!
Can I make this with ground coffee instead of beans? I can’t find decaf beans near me.
If so, would I steep for same time and use same amount?
Hi, MO! I think ground coffee would work just fine. However, I would put it in a muslin bag so it would be easy to remove the grounds. Unless, you have a very fine mesh strainer and layered it with cheesecloth. I’ve never made this ice cream with ground coffee so I can’t say for sure how much you would need or how long to steep it. I would say, however, that the coffee flavor would infuse faster and be stronger with ground coffee so you wouldn’t need as much coffee. Though steeping time really depends on how much coffee flavor you think you’d like. If you want the flavor to be subtle steep it for a shorter amount of time, stronger longer. Good luck!
Amazing !! and thats from a coffee addict !! The best coffee ice cream i’ve ever tasted anywhere … and easy to make too :) thank you so much for sharing the recipe
The best coffee ice cream I’ve ever made! Great recipe!
Great recipe but way too much sugar. Next time will only put 1/2 or 3/4 of a cup.
the recipe only calls for 3/4 cup sugar anyway
Exactly: way too much!
I agree, I’m making it now with 1/2 cup. Let’s see…
It turned out great, is so creamy, and I love being able to make it with decaf beans so I know it’s okay to eat at night and to feed to my kids! Wonderful recipe!
I make this and it is the biggest hit with EVERYONE! I use Trader Joe’s Decaf coffee and instead of letting it sit for 1 hour, I let it sit for much longer, depends on how much time I have, but sometimes overnight and the coffee flavor is amazing!!I double the recipe, use less egg yolks, and dont do the coffee grinds. I’ve done the coffee grinds before, but doesnt change the flavor. I do add chopped chocolate in it too to get a yummy crunch!
Hi Samantha, oh I bet an overnight sit with all of that coffee flavor is amazing!
This was a good starter, but I tweaked it. I used two tablespoons of instant espresso instead of the coffee beans, used half brown sugar/half white, and added two tablespoons of Frangelico. It is honestly the best ice cream I have ever had.
Make this ice cream, it turns out so great, better than the shop one! My family loves it. Thanks for the recipe.
I LOVE this ice cream! It takes a while to do, but it doesn’t use any complicated or hard to find ingredients. In fact, I had everything I needed on hand to make it besides the cream. It turned out wonderful both in taste, texture, and hardness. It wasn’t too soft and it didn’t freeze up like ice when I put it in the freezer. The taste is amazing! I couldn’t believe how much coffee flavor was in it! I also added some cocoa bean nibs for some crunch and extra flavor and it was amazing.
I’m so glad you liked it Abby! Love the idea of adding some cocoa bean nibs.
Too sweet, next time I’ll cut out some of the sugar for my families taste! Great consistency though!
Ok. This is honestly delicious. I’ll admit I normally don’t like coffee ice cream, its my husbands favorite. I can’t tell you how good this is. I will definitely make a double batch next time but it came out perfect.
I didn’t think the recipe could possibly live up to the reviews. Oh. My. Gosh. This is seriously the beatbox I’ve cream I have ever eaten. We will make a double batch tomorrow. Thank you, Elise.
SERIOUSLY the most AMAZING and BEST ever coffee ice cream !! …I have made it about 6 times so far we just cant get enough of itI am a coffee – holic and hubby is a Ice cream a holic …. and this really is the most fantastic coffee ice cream i have ever had the pleasure of in my entire life !! ( and im over 50 … thats a lot of coffee ice cream years ; ) I like a good depth of rich flavour so i always use espresso beans … im just making another batch now beans are steeping as i write …. Thank you so much Elise for this fabulous recipe !! today i have cut out a 1/4 cup of sugar and will be adding a small amount of Tia Maria to it … cant wait to try it :) Thanks again Elise :)
Delicious!!! Super creamy, perfect coffee flavor! Loved it!
This ice cream was incredible! The base recipe is so good! I didn’t use decaf and I wish I did…although it was an excuse to have ice cream for breakfast! :D
I really love this ice cream! Now, according to my husband, I’ve ruined his life because he can’t buy anymore coffee ice cream to fill the void. It has to be THIS one and I have to make it! Also, I put in chopped up heath bars because that’s what he wants in his. Delicious!
