Teag, thanks for this recipe. Even though this is a really simple recipe and I ought to be able to handle it, I have some questions Huh

I had two cups of coffee from Starbucks that were left over (I guess Ventis really are too big Roll Eyes). I simmered it for more than 90 minutes (it even boiled at some points, is that a problem?) and it didn't really reduce that much. How syrupy should it look. It doesn't look like maple syrup, and I don't have anything else to compare it to. Does it normally take that long?

Maybe I should only have tried one cup at a time.

If you knew how much I love coffee milk and how hard it was to find these days, you'd understand... I never would have started drinking coffee in the first place if I could have had a continuous coffee milk supply!

It doesn't get too thick but will thicken some when it is cold-  in no way will it be as thick as maple syrup

As far as boiling it should be fine I said simmer so that the liquid doesn't boil away too quickly and burn

What a great idea!!  I've saved and chilled plain coffee before to add to milk, but coffee syrup sounds MUCH yummier!!

I've made some!! I'm so excited to try it with milk tomorrow Cheesy

I would put a warning for people who don't have a real sweet tooth - I used 2 coffee to 3/4 sugar by volume, and it tastes SUPER sweet to me.. Next time I will do 2:1/4 or something like that.. way less sugar and hope it will still thicken up. My 2 - 3/4 is currently cooling, so I'm yet to see how thick it gets Cheesy
