Sous Vide Coffee Liqueur

Anova Culinary

This Sous Vide Coffee Liqueur is the perfect homemade holiday gift — and it’s better than Kahlua! Though it typically needs two months to sit and truly be ready, the Anova Sous Vide Precision Cooker ensures that it can be prepared and served in just three hours. In this recipe we call for really strong coffee — and we mean it. Brew it at at least double the strength you would regularly brew, and be sure to use really good vodka.

Prep Time: 00:10

Recipe Time: 03:00

Temperature : 145F / 62.8C



  1. Set the Anova Sous Vide Precision Cooker to 145°F (62°C).
  2. Combine all ingredients in a large zipper lock bag. Seal the bag using the water immersion technique. Place the bag in the water bath and set the timer for 3 hours. Halfway through cooking, mix the contents of the bag to ensure that the sugar has dissolved.

Finishing Steps

  1. When the timer goes off, remove the bag from the water bath. Strain the contents of the bag through a fine-mesh strainer into a large bowl. Let cool to room temperature. Transfer to a storage bottle and refrigerate overnight before serving.
  2. Store in an air-tight bottle for up to six months.
