Coffee Whole Beans Ice Cream Recipe (Hard) 

Coffee Desert

  • 1 ½ cups of whole milk
  • ¾ cups of sugar
  • 1 ½ cups of coffee whole beans (suggested: Your Daily Lift whole beans, Espresso Blend, or Silca Reserve)
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 ½ cup of heavy cream
  • 5 egg yolks
  • ¼ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ¼ teaspoon finely ground coffee (for topping!)


  1. Using medium heat, heat the milk, whole coffee beans, salt, and ½ cup heavy cream in a saucepan. Stir carefully to warm but don’t allow the mixture to boil. Once it is warm enough, cover the saucepan, remove from heat and let it rest at room temperature for one hour. 
  2. Pour the remaining cream into a bowl over an ice bath with sieve. To do this, simply pour the remaining 1 cup of heavy cream into a medium size metal bowl, and set on ice over a larger bowl. Set a mesh strainer on top of the bowls then set aside.
  3. Reheat the milk and coffee mixture, on medium heat, until hot and steamy (not boiling!).
  4. In a separate bowl, whisk the egg yolks together.
  5. Slowly pour the heated milk and coffee mixture into the egg yolks, whisking constantly so that the egg yolks are tempered by the warm milk, but not cooked by it. Scrape the warmed egg yolks back into the saucepan.
  6. Stir the custard mixture constantly over medium heat with a heatproof, flat-bottomed spatula, scraping the bottom as you stir, until the mixture thickens and coats the spatula so that you can run your finger across the coating and have the coating not run. This can take about 10 minutes.
  7. Press on the coffee beans in the strainer to extract as much of the coffee flavor as possible. Then discard the beans. Mix in the vanilla and finely ground coffee, and stir until cool.
  8. Chill the mixture thoroughly in the refrigerator, then freeze it in your ice cream maker!
