Ingredients

  • 6 tablespoons ground coffee (ground for a pour over / Chemex)
  • 2 1/4 cups boiling water plus 1 tablespoon cold water
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons unflavored gelatin
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla

Directions

  1. Using a non-electric brew method (like a pour over or Chemex,) brew  your coffee with 2 cups of the hot water.
  2. In a saucepan, bring the remaining 1/4 cup of water and all of the sugar to a boil until sugar has dissolved, creating a simple syrup. Remove the pan from heat.
  3. Soften the gelatin by sprinkling it with the 1 tablespoon of cold water and let it sit for about a minute.
  4. Combine hot coffee, simple syrup and vanilla, then add the gelatin and stir until the gelatin has completely dissolved.
  5. Put the mixture in a bowl and chill, covered, until it has softly set — about 8 hours.
