Today I made a coffee syrup. Tom went out to purchase some espresso powder for me and came home with a cheaper type espresso powder (PILON) as the grocery stores around here have discontinued the brand that I use (Medaglia D’Oro Caffè Espresso Instant) when I make cappuccino ice cream. The Medaglia D’Oro brand has an authentic taste of espresso and I thought it would make a good syrup. However, the PILON brand is nothing more than just regular, cheap, instant coffee. It has a burned smell with a bitter taste.
I am going to search around for the Medaglia D’Oro Caffè Espresso Instant and make it again. I am bound and determined to have a coffee/espresso syrup on hand when I want a nice glass of iced cappuccino.
