This recipe took a few trials to perfect because I wanted a punch of coffee flavor without it being too overpowering.  Unfortunately, it’s difficult to use a lot of coffee in ice cream recipes because too high of a water content will make the ice cream crystallize and turn icy.  Not something you look for in ice cream…  it’s supposed to be creamy!

I’m not a caffeine addict.
