There’s nothing boring or plain about real vanilla ice cream. Vanilla beans are exotic and beautiful, and oh so fragrant and flavorful. We steep the beans and add vanilla extract as well, for a double dose of vanilla perfection. In addition, we throw in a handful of coffee beans. They add a kick and a complexity to vanilla ice cream. Not enough to make it taste like coffee, but just enough to give you a hint of something nutty, bitter, and slightly beyond your reach.
