Agar Agar + Coffee = Yummy

Introduction: Agar Agar + Coffee = Yummy

First you will need to find some where to buy Agar Agar powder sweetend or unsweet depending on what you like. I picked mine up at Hong Kong market for $ 1.79 a box. You are also going to need 1 large heat safe mesuring cup, coffee, water, a medium size pot, a whisk, molds of some sort and the optional items sugar, creamer of your choice and whip cream.

Step 1:

This is the sweetened brand I picked up.

Step 2:

Get your coffee pot ready

Step 3:

add 8-10 teaspoons of coffee..

Step 4:

add 6 cups of water to the coffee maker or fill it up to the 10 line on the pot thats about 6 cups

Step 5:

Brew coffee

Step 6:

add coffee to pot and bring to a low boil. The agar agar is sweet but I add another cup and a half of sugar. The addition of sugar and creamer is up to your taste.

Step 7:

here are the instructions on the back of the box I used to follow. I used coffee insted of water if thats not already obvious.. I also added sugar and hazelnut creamer to mine

Step 8:

Step 9:

when the coffee comes to a boil dissolve sugar optional add creamer optional and stir next add the Agar Agar and whisk for 1 minute assure everything is dessolved or it will come out grainy..

Step 10:

pour mixture into a heat safe large mesuring cup over the sink!!!

Step 11:

add to any type of mold..

Step 12:

now in the fridge for 2-4 hrs..

Step 13:

remove from fridge and cut to desired shapes and sizes.

Step 14:

add to desired eatting platform I used a wine glass. I know that glass is not all the way full but there is about a cup and a half of coffee in there and I didnt want to be up all night. As you can see I added whip cream to mine to give it even more goodness... Lastly enjoy your creation..

    I tried making Agar Agar before, but it ended up having a horrible, werid texture and I ended up putting it on neighbors porches along with a letter from "aliens" (aka me and my friend) This looks alot better. Maybe Il try it.... Does it have the same texture as just plain Agar Agar?

    It has the same texture as jello maybe a little harder. If you add to much it will come out super hard if you add to little it will come out like slime and if you don't melt it all the way it will come out like sandy slime. The best way to use it is following the directions on the box to make the base mix any liquid is ok as long as its the equivalent of the water that was supposed to be in it. If you don't want to use the boxes instructions your going to mix 2 teaspoons of agar agar powder unsweetened to 2 cups of liquid. What's really cool about it is it does not start melting until 136 degrees F. One thing to remember is if you are using store bought juices some may cause and adverse reaction with the agar due to the additives in the juice. Hope this helps you..
