What Exactly Is Coffee Concentrate
Coffee Concentrate is going to give you incredible rich, smooth coffee mix that is infused with pumpkin spice flavor.
You will use your Instant Pot to really cook down the coffee and in that it will extract all the coffee flavor from the grinds.
You run it through a mess cloth to catch any grinds or spiced, so you end up with a smooth liquid to pour into your favorite drinks.
What Type of Coffee Do You Use For Coffee Concentrate
Any ground coffee will work for your coffee Concentrate. Reach for your favorite brand, so you know and enjoy the flavor it brings. Concentrating coffee will bring out a lot more flavor in the beans, verses brewing your beans.
Can I Use Whole Beans For Coffee Concentrate
You will need to grind your beans fine (but not too fine) to use in this pumpkin spice concentrate recipe. Using whole beans without grinding will not work in getting the right flavor you want to achieve.
How Strong Can I Make Pumpkin Spice Coffee Concentrate
It is truly up to you on how strong you make your concentrate. That is intended for how strong the coffee is as well as the pumpkin spice flavor.
Using more coffee will make it stronger, as well as increasing steep time. Adding in more pumpkin spice increases intensity.
But you can also make it a more mellow drink if you find the flavor is too intense. Using less pumpkin spice seasoning or coffee.
What Type Of Water Do You Use For Coffee Concentrate
Filtered water is going to give you a really smooth coffee concentrate. You can use tap water, but keep in mind the quality of the water will affect the outcome.
Is Coffee Concentrate A Cold Brew
No it is not. Similar flavors but a totally different method to making your coffee. Cold brew is where you steep coffee with cold water for a long period of time. My Concentrate recipe uses the Instant Pot with high pressure and heat to extract all the flavor from the beans and spices.
You get similar flavors in the end but the process of making is polar opposite.
How long can I store my coffee concentrate in the refrigerator
As an undiluted concentrate, it’ll keep for up to two weeks, although the flavor quality will be best the first week.
How should I store my leftover coffee concentrate
Freeze you leftover coffee in ice cube trays, than store cubes in an airtight container for up to six months for best taste.
Give the gift of Instant Pot Pumpkin Spiced Coffee Concentrate
We all have that one friend that is a coffee addict. Ahem, I am that friend. Giving a sweet thoughtful gift can be the cure all to many blues. It can be just the right amount of acknowledgement of how much you love someone. Look how sweet this little set looks.
How to use your coffee concentrate
My favorite way is to fill a mason jar full of ice, add in coffee concentrate. A little goes a long way. You will want to pour about 1/3 of the way with coffee, top with milk, skim milk, heavy cream or condensed milk.
If you are not using ice, mix an equal amount of concentrate and water, than top with milk or cream.
Can I make a pumpkin spice frappuccino as good as Starbucks?
You can make a pumpkin spice frappuccino that is even better than Starbucks.
- 1/2 Cup Pumpkin Spice Coffee Concentrate
- 1 Cup Milk of your choice (skim, heavy cream, condensed milk,, etc)
- 1 Cup Ice Cubes
- 3 TBSP Pumpkin Puree
- Sweeten as you like
- Whipped Cream
Pour all ingredients into your blender. Blend until your frappuccino until your ice cubes are fully chopped but do not over blend. You want your frappuccino to be fairly thick. Top with whipped cream. Sprinkle pumpkin pie spice over your whipped cream.
- 1 1/4 Cups Coffee Grinds *(regular or decaf)
- 5 TSP Pumpkin Pie Spice ***
- 2 1/2 TSP Ground Cinnamon
- 18 Cups of Water
- **SEE BELOW in notes for half sized recipe for smaller than 8 QT pots.
- In a bowl mix coffee grinds, pumpkin pie spice & ground cinnamon.
- Pour into your pot.
- Pour 18 cups of water into the pot.
- Set your pot to manual high pressure for 5 minutes. Do a natural release This may take some time so be patient. Mine took about an hour for my pin to drop.
- Strain the coffee concentrate to remove the grinds. I poured mine through a coffee filter. (as you get close to the bottom, you may want to strain twice. Most of the sludge is at the bottom and starts to require more straining)
*For a stronger hardcore end result, use 1 1/2 Cups Coffee Grinds
**If you have used full caffeine, you may want to dilute a bit, with water, if you are not using a lot of milk or creamer.
***This coffee will have a nice mild pumpkin spice flavor, if you like a more intense flavoring add more pumpkin pie spice.
