I am 95% sure I know the answer already (ground beans), just want to double check as it could be read either way?

Also, looks like there is some coffee grounds in the neck of the bottles. Wouldn't it be easy to strain this through a coffee filter or will it remove some necessary components? Can't see why it would?

Lastly, does it really taste like kahlua? Or just similar?

Not a big liquor drinker, but 3 fifths for $10 is cheap... might come in handy for a partaaay sometime.
Roaring,
For mine I use instant coffee. Easier than brewing coffee and dumping it in. I believe the specs at the neck of the bottle are from the vanilla beans. I guess you could strain it but I don't bother. As for taste, I've never actually compared the two but my caucasians (white russians) taste pretty good.

1/5 of a gallon, which is 128 oz.

1/5 x 128 = 25.6 oz. = 757 mL

I've done it both ways and prefer the good quality beans. But after you have 9 or 10, the connoisseur has past on, and the beast is less discriminating.

Boiling off as we speak. Tasting will be soon.

Alright. I have it boiled down to 3 cups. Time to add the booze. I'm going to start with 750 ml of 40% and 1 tsp of good bourbon vanilla.

OK. Had to finish watching UEFA QF. A little to sweet with only 750ml of vodka (which brought the total to 6 cups). Adding 250ml more and I'll get back to yous.

Wound up adding another 250ml of vodka, which brought the total to just about 8 cups. Very nice. I glad somebody reminded me of this stuff.
