This is a simple recipe for Kahlua out of the Reidsville Jr. (the wanna bees - if you know what I mean, small town talk) Service League cook book.  I would like someone to refigure it using fresh made ground coffee instead of instant and push the batch up to several gallons, maybe even 5 gallons.  It is really good.  Here goes:
4 c. sugar
2 c. boiling water
2 oz. instant (not freeze dried) coffee
1 vanilla bean spit and quartered
1 pt. of 100 proof vodka
Thoroughly dissolve sugar and coffee in water.  Add vodka and vanilla bean.  Put in jug and hide for 30 days.  Strain out vanilla bean, and bottle.  
That's when I run to the store for a gallon of milk, mix me a glass, sit back and enjoy a good movie.

I would guess you could just use two cups of very strong coffee instead of the water, although I would probably not boil it, just use it as it comes out of the coffemaker.  The sugar should dissolve.

I have made this recipe many times over the last few years. Many thanks!!

I taught it to my wife today. She brought up an interesting question.
What is the actual purpose of aging for 30 days? Is it to allow the vanilla bean to flavor the liquid?
If so, the process can be hastened by steaping the vanilla beans in the hot coffee for approximately 5 minutes.
Then stir or shake the mixture to thoroughly mix the sugar, coffee and vodka.
