Another use for leftover coffee is to make a milk shake similar to the Arby's Jamocha. Mix cold coffee with either milk and chocolate ice cream or chocolate milk and vanilla ice cream and a bit of ice in a blender. It is great.

You have great ideas. I've used in baking before and on chocolate desserts but will certainly use your suggestions. Thanks.

RedEye Gravy

Don't forget the (once) ever popular redeye gravy. Fry ham, remove. Sprinkle in flour, pour in leftover coffee, heat and thicken.

Hi there, I use leftover coffee in my mom's southern recipe for b-b-q sauce. It's best if you use pretty strong coffee ( about 1/4 cup) in your b-b-q sauce. I also make homemade beef tamales at Christmas and I add about 1/2 cup strong leftover coffee with my other spices, etc. when I slow cook the meat 'till it's fall-apart tender.wills53

Just nuke it in the microwave and serve it to the unannounced/unwelcome guests just to spite them

Seldom have leftover coffee - it get's put over ice for iced coffee. If there is any left over I use it in gravy, BBQ sauce, stews, and marinades too. Fresh finely ground coffee with cracked black pepper and chili powder make an excellent dry rub for really good steaks.

When I was a kid, I raised earthworms for fishing. About once a week or so I'd mix a couple of tablespoons of used coffee grounds into the can of dirt they lived it, and it kept them fat, happy, and very active.

Cold brewed coffee will reheat nicely in the microwave, provided that you didn't leave it on the burner too long when you first made it. It ain't the best, but sometimes that just don't matter none too much!

I don't drink much coffee, but I love making coffee shakes. I used to work at an IHOP, and that's where I made most of my shake experiments. I made a coffee or mocha one a LOT. I actually used hot coffee in the shakes, but I got the technique down to where I could use the coffee and ice cream and not get a watery mess. THere's just this little trick you have to do....use more ice cream and no milk. The hot coffee makes the ice cream melt enough so you don't have to use the milk. Then I started working at a Dairy Queen and had to change my technique because they use soft-serve.

My mom decorates cakes, and she makes a killer mocha frosting. I'm not sure how she does it, but it's great!

Another way I can think of, like others here, is to freeze them in an ice cube tray. My parents like to put ice in their coffee first thing in the morning to cool it off a little, and if they did freeze the coffee, it wouldn't get all watered down.

I hope this gives you a little more ideas!
