How to make it

  • Tip: Make sure you use good quality, fresh coffee
  • Take the finely ground coffee and pour the water onto it then let it stand for about 10 mins.
  • You then need to remove the coffee grounds so strain the mixture.
  • In a heatproof bowl mix together the sugar and egg yolks, then whisk until thick and pale.
  • Whisk in the milk and the coffee, then put the bowl over a saucepan of simmering (though not boiling) water or use a double boiler.
  • Cook until the mixture is thick (ie. until it forms a layer on the back of a wooden spoon) being sure to stir it all the time.
  • Take the saucepan off the heat and place the bowl to one side to cool.
  • If you want to prevent a skin forming on the mixture you can try covering the surface with a piece of damp, greaseproof paper. (You can use plastic wrap gently laid down on top of ice cream)
  • When cool, transfer the complete mixture into an ice cream maker and follow the manufacturer’s instructions.
  • Once your ice cream has thickened in your ice cream machine, then put ice cream into a bowl with lid into your freezer to completely freeze (might take at least four hours) until ready to serve.
