Where can I find the chocolate version? My kids love chocolate milk.

Here is my review, and the link to Tenina's "Brownie Milk" is there.

I've done it twice with instant, turned out fine, Susan! I made it again this morning, (did you see my FB post and it made you want it? lol) but it seems I can't stand much caffeine at all since I've cut right back and I didn't enjoy it. Ah well, DP can drink it. :)

An old post I know but summer is here...
Not sure what I did wrong - added a cup of boiling water to my 1 1/2 cups freshly ground coffee, and strained off only a trickle of water after the 10 mins
So added another cup of boilignwater - but should it have worked the first time? Assuming that I should have had roughly a cup of strained coffee for it to make 1.25 cups syrup?

I love this in summer debetha.  I also had a bit of a problem with the straining of the liquid as you will see below in my comment on this thread.  So, what I do now is after the 10 minutes of standing time, I add another 1/2 cup of boiling water to the coffee mixture then strain this back into the bowl (using a chux lined sieve to keep the dregs out).




I have just made a batch of this Chookie. I think I made the mistake of straining the coffee back into the TM bowl through a sieve instead of something finer like a chux-lined sieve as our first drink was very gritty (it had dregs like you find in the tray of a coffee machine).  So I added another 1/2 cup boiling water to the existing mixture so that it wasn't as thick and strained this lot through the chux. It was a perfect glass of iced coffee with the sweetness level being just right for us.  After a couple of large glasses each  ??? ??? I filled a 300ml bottle with the syrup and as it lasts a month, don't think I need to freeze any of this lot - I'm sure it will all be gone within the month. Best iced-coffee I've had in a long while and I am keeping this in mind for whenever I do a TMX hamper in the future. Thanks so much for the posting Chookie  :-* :-*

Do you think I should change the original recipe to make it 1 1/2 cups of boiling water.?

It could be that the coffee we use affects the outcome Chookie, how do you get on with only 1 cup of water in yours?

It is very very tasty though. Thanks for the input jd, that is basically what I did, including using a chux. Might be the grind of the coffee?Getting thru lots of milk here! Thanks for the recipe chookie!

I'm just remembering that Chookie has a coffee maker so hers may grind finer than the Harris Dark Roast Coarse Grind Plunger Coffee that I use. What did you use debetha?  Would this be the case Chookie and the reason why I need to add more boiling water than you?

We have a sunbeam grinder, used a mid setting but can easily adjust. Would worry that the sludge would get thru a  chux if too fine ( e chux I used seemed to have pretty large holes!)
