So, I have all of this coffee sitting around my house, whole bean. Was wondering if you guys have any ideas of what to do with it, besides brewing (Which I do, but working in a coffee shop kinda makes it redundant) and baking (My oven's busted :<). Open to most stuff :D

Re: Coffee?

Coffee fudge. Make really strong café au lait and use that instead of the milk in a fudge recipe.

Re: Coffee?

First thing I thought of was chocolate-covered coffee beans. (http://gifts-chocolate.net/chocolate-covered-coffee-beans)

I found a couple other things too:

Coffee bean cookies (http://www.cdkitchen.com/recipes/recs/860/Coffee-Bean-Cookies79597.shtml)
Almond and coffee bean brittle (http://www.taste.com.au/recipes/21354/almond+and+coffee+bean+brittle)
Coffee bean syrup (http://www.foodandwine.com/recipes/bananas-in-coffee-bean-syrup)

Re: Coffee?

my uncle is an artist and he usually paints with black coffee as if it was sepia watercolor. It's so cool :D

Re: Coffee?

A mole would be good, you can use it on meats, eggs, and in general dishes. Chocolate, coffee, and spice.... yum. Here is a chicken recipe I found just as an example:

Re: Coffee?

Make Kahlua.

Soak the cracked beans in everclear or a clear rum or whiskey.
when it gets kinda dark, strain out the beans and add simple syrup and cream to taste.
Woila! Kahlua.

That plus a little grey goose and a vanilla bean as flavoring in a homemade ice cream=
White Russian Ice Cream!
