Yuban instant coffee granules
Heat water to hot. Add the Yuban slowly to disolve completely. Slowly add the sugar and stir untill all disolved. Stir slowly until the boiling point is reached. Add vanilla beans that have been cut into 1" pieces. Simmer for 10 minutes. Cool completely! Add the brandy and stir to mix thoroughly. This should fit a 1 gallon jug. Shake to mix all contents every other day or so. This coffee liqueur should sit in a cool dark place for 30 days or so before serving. When you layer this brew with light cream in a small glass it is called a King Alphonse.
