Gevalia Coffee

Ok- I love general foods international coffees. I use to get ads in magazines and send a dollar to try them. Oh it was heaven. Now Folgers has gourmet coffees that are heavenly.
Well, for a good deal go to: pick the three you would like. It only costs three dollars for three flavors now thats a bargain.

Here are some recipes

Irish Coffee

1 cup of strong black coffee
1 tsp of sugar
1 shot of whisky
1 small carton of double cream

Poor coffee into a wine glass until just over half full.
Stir in sugar until disolved.
Mix in whisky.
Place a teaspoon upside down just above the coffee and slow poor the cream onto the spoon. The cream should then float on top of the coffee, making a lay about half an inch thick or so.
Cappuccino Royale

1/2 cup of half and half
1/2 cup of espresso
2 tbsp Brandy
2 tbsp Dark Creme de Cacao
2 tbsp White Rum

Whisk the half and half in a small saucepan on high until it starts to froth.
Split espresso into two cups.
Divide the Brandy and Creme de Cacao into each cup.
Pour the half and half into each cup.
Sweeten with sugar.
Iced Coffee

1 pot of fresh brewed coffee
Ice cubes

Brew the coffee. Add sugar if you prefer.
Pour coffee into a carafe, leave to cool for an hour and then cool in a refrigerator for another two hours.
Fill a tall glass with ice cubes, then coffee and add milk to taste.
Stir and serve.
These two recipes are merely to give you ideas on creative ways in which to use coffee. Only your imagination can hold you back.
