Readers’ Recipes is a regular recipe post. With dozens of recipes hidden away on this site, it’s easy to overlook a coffee recipe that might interest you. Readers’ Recipes introduces some of interest to readers from our archive.

Introduction: Kahlua Coffee Recipe

Try this recipe with Kahlua (a Mexican liqueur flavored with rum, coffee, and vanilla bean. All of which are wonderful flavors in themselves), mixed with dark roast coffee.

Check out this Kahlua Syrup on Amazon


  • 12 cups of cold fresh water (about 2.8L)
  • 4 tablespoons of dark roast coffee (about 60g)
  • one half pint of Kahlua liqueur (240ml)
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon (2.5g)


First make coffee in coffee maker as usual. Then pour coffee into large thermos flask. Just add the Kahlua, cinnamon and put the lid on tight! Shake!

Serve your wonderful Kahlua coffee recipe to your family & friends, and enjoy on a cold winter weekend!!!

One variation: if you can’t get 100% Kahlua liqueur, you might like to try Kahlua syrup or Kahlua flavored coffee instead. I suggest you make a small batch first to test the flavors before you adapt the Kahlua coffee recipe too much!
