I have made Kombucha coffee using a SCOBY. The result is a very very potent energy tonic. The coffee is slightly fermented and has many of the qualities associated with traditional kombucha

Sorry for the super late reply I ended up making an espresso beer using Belgian yeast from White-Labs. I loved it, but its not for everyone. I'll have to show pictures sometime soon

Sideways^ pictures. They rotated in my gallery but looks like they won't stay rotated.

I tried espresso wine kind of a deal. It was too bitter to drink. Although its aging now the pre aging flavor warm and chilled was overpowering. I may have a different opinion in a few months. But as it stands now coffee would prob be a better choice. Being as alcohol enhances flavors. (Like bitterness in espresso.)

I've recently read about this. Very cool to hear that it works and that's it's high in caffeine?
I've heard that the SCOBY isn't 'active' anymore after fermentation when you make coffee kombucha - that you have to use an extra scoby and not your main one.

Any experience with this?
