Coffee Gelee` for Taste Creations

Yum
I am the odd ball at my house as I do not drink coffee.  I absolutely love the way it smells but I have never found a way to enjoy coffee.  Until now.

Our Taste Creations bloggers decided on coffee for our challenge this month.  I knew I would have to work hard at finding something that I would want to share.  My husband knows a lot about coffee and how to prepare it in different ways, so I considered having him write the post.

Then I heard about coffee gelee`.


Coffee Gelee` is a satiny sort of jello (it seems a shame to compare the two, but you can maybe understand a bit better!)  It is so refreshing, and the bitterness of coffee is nearly non-existant!


Coffee Gelee`

by Our Good Life
Prep Time: 20 minutes

  • 2 c brewed coffee, strong is better
  • 1/2 c water

Instructions
In a sauce pan, stir the water and sugar together and bring to a boil. Boil for 1 minute and set aside.
In a small bowl, soften gelatin by adding 4 T cold water and stirring. Set aside.
Add the coffee to the sugar water. Stir until incorporated. Add the softened gelatin and stir until gelatin has melted.

  4. Looks good! I don't really like coffee that much, either! But I don't mind coffee flavoring (like tiramisu or cafe mocha), so this recipe might be a good one for me! I just can't drink coffee straight.

  5. I'm with you--I'm not a coffee drinker, but I LOVE the smell, and I like coffee flavored things (like ice cream). I've never tried a gelee, but I'm completely intrigued!

    1. Ana, all you need to do is replace the liquid coffee with liquid decaf coffee! It's that simple! I love your blog!

  16. I don't drink coffee except of mixed coffee -like cappucino, mocha- but everything with coffee flavor is heaven for me. This is a cool idea, enjoy the coffee in different way.
