For each of my two Coffee Stouts, I brewed a strong pot (8-10 cups) of
either Zimbabwe or Morroccan coffee from Peet's Coffees in Berkeley.
The flavor and aroma of good strong coffee was unmistakeable, but not
overwhelming. I rated the first batch as one of my top three ever. I
botched the third batch (didn't boil off nearly enough volume, so the
beer turned out Way Too Light) but the flavor was still quite good.

Both of these recipes are based on the one in Cat's Meow 2...sorry, I
don't have it here, so I can't give you the exact name or page number.

have fun
