To brew the coffee, remove the metal filter and add 1 heaping tbsn. of coffee grinds into the coffee maker. Twist the top of the filter back on until it stops. Make sure the filter is not too tight or else nothing will drop through and if its too loose, the drip will be too watery. Place it over an empty cup then pour the boiling water on the top of the filter until filled and allow the water to filter through. Brewing time should take 3 - 5 minutes. Continue this process until you have about 2 cups of coffee, using more coffee grinds as necessary. Add the condensed milk to your preferred taste, then add the powdered gelatin and stir until it is completely dissolved (If your coffee is no longer hot, make sure to heat it up again before adding the gelatin, it will dissolve easier this way). Pour into your preferred container and refrigerate until solid, about 2 - 4 hours. Enjoy!

So I've recently become interested with homemade jello, odd right? I can't explain my ways, odd things just happen to cross my mind, then continue to intrigue me for a good week or sometimes much longer. Well, first I made some tea jellies, and let me tell you, they were awesome. Super refreshing and if you love tea, its a great way to enjoy it. Since I was so wildly successful, I decided to try again but this time with Vietnamese coffee.
Yummmm. I really don't think you can do wrong with jello. Once you've got your standard recipe, the possibilities are endless! I can't wait to try so many things! It's super easy and a great snack. This coffee jello is great alone, but I could see it being delicious chopped up and added to drinks or whatever your mind desires it with.
Add condensed milk to your liking till it turns a nice caramel color:
This little guy was meow-ing so sadly, so I gave him some milk and he was happy:
