With just a few simple ingredients you can recreate the European-style coffees that come in rectangular tins at a fraction of the cost. Included here are clones for Cafe Vienna, French Vanilla Cafe, and Suisse Mocha. Since these famous instant coffee blends are created by Maxwell House, it's best to use Maxwell House instant coffee, although I've tried them with Folger's and Taster's Choice, and the recipes still work out fine. You'll also need a coffee bean grinder to grind the instant coffee into powder. When you're finished making the mix, you can store it for as long as you like in a sealed container, until you're ready for a hot coffee drink. When that time comes, measure some of the mix into a cup and add boiling water. Stir well and enjoy while watching shows about Europe on the Travel Channel to enhance the experience.

Great recipe but instead of grinding it, put coffee in a resealable plastic bag, seal and roll with a rolling pin. Works great and nothing to clean! Add remaining ingredients to the bag, mix, cut a hole in one corner to neatly pour into container. I also double the amount of coffee listed to suit my taste.

I love this recipe. I make my own flavors also and use Splenda instead. You can't even tell the difference. I grind everything up in a mini processer to make it really fine like the real thing. I give this out at Christmas now and everyone loves it.
