Servings 8


  • 1 1/2 cup whole milk
  • 1 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 18 g finely ground coffee
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp almond extract
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 4 egg yolks
  • 1/2 cup toasted almonds chopped


  • Whisk together the milk, whipping cream, 1/3 c. sugar, coffee grounds, salt, almond extract, and vanilla extract. Bring to a simmer over medium heat. Meanwhile, whisk together the remaining 1/3 c. sugar and egg yolks until pale yellow, about 2 minutes.
  • Gradually mix half of the cream mixture into the egg yolks, whisking constantly. Pour the yolk-cream mixture back into the saucepan, and cook over medium heat until slightly thickened. It should coat the back of a spoon. Strain through a fine-mesh sieve into a small bowl. Cool it with an ice bath. Press a piece of plastic wrap over the top to keep a skin from forming. Refrigerate for one hour.
  • Stir in the chopped almonds. Freeze in an ice cream maker according to manufacturer's instructions. Pour into a freezer-safe container. Freeze for one hour before serving.


If you want to remove all coffee grounds, strain through cheesecloth rather than a fine-mesh strainer.
