Work perk : free coffee! You may have one of these at your dorm as well. The only catch is that it's bad coffee. The Douwe Egbert cafitesse delivers a hot cup at the press of a button by mixing refrigerated coffee concentrate with hot water. It's passable, but I like my coffee a little stronger in the mornings and sometimes an iced coffee in the afternoon. This instructable will show you how to make both of these, plus a passable espresso.
Step 1: Remove the Housing
Step 2: Remove the Mixing Nozzle
Step 3: Watch What You're Doing
Step 4: Un-Combine Your Ingredients
Press the coffee button on the front of the machine until your water mug is full. Watch carefully so you don't overflow and burn yourself.
Congratulations! You've extracted one shot of your base ingredient. If you just want a stronger cup of coffee, reassemble your coffee maker and add the stock coffee solution to your extract. Read on for other options.
Step 5: Espresso?
Step 6: Iced Coffee?
My old method was to dispense some coffee and put it in the freezer, but that takes forethought as it takes time to cool off the hot coffee. Adding ice makes it much to watery.
But now that we've figured out to get our extract, that's not a problem.
My personal recipe depends on what I can scavenge that day. Most days it's what lies in the condiment basket. Double shot of coffee concentrate, two sugars, two creamers, a little ice and some cold water will do it. There's usually some cinnamon in the cupboard and, if I'm lucky, someone will have donated some hot chocolate mix.
But today we've hit the motherload! We have a plethora of options available to us today. Chocolate milk for a mocha option, if that's your thing. Boba Fett seems to be the new poster boy for italian sweet cream flavored coffee creamer. Usually there's some hazelnut in here that adds a good flavor. Today we have a special treat of Rediwhip to top off our concoction. Go nuts!
Thanks for reading. Hopefully you've discovered a few new options to help liven up a dull coffee routine. Please vote.
