    Im leaving this coffee recipe here for @Debbie Lee - and perhaps others would be so kind as to share any coffee recipes you have with her as well, that would be great.

    Recipe From ELR (credit at the end of the notes)

    Bavarian Cream (TPA) 2.00%
    Coffee (MF) 2.00%
    Marshmallow (CAP) or (TPA) 1.50%
    Sweet Cream (CAP) 1.50%
    Tiramisu (Booster) (FA) 0.50%
    Vanilla Whipped Cream (CAP) 1.50%

    Notes:

    I've been working on this recipe for close to year and a half now, and I think it's finally perfect.

    This is a straight up coffee with cream that has no burnt or skunky notes, but it absolutely REQUIRES a month-long steep and one very expensive ingredient: Medicine Flower's Coffee.

    If you're as serious in your search for the perfect coffee vape as I am, look no further. This is the one. But it requires a lot of patience. You absolutely *cannot* heat-steep this, breathe-steep this, or mix it with a milk frother. You can't rush it. Just shake all your concentrates well as you drip them, add them to your preferred base at your preferred nic level, shake the hell out of it, and put it away somewhere cool and dark for a month or longer.

    This should deepen in color considerably during the steep and reward you with a rich, full, well-rounded coffee experience under any vaping conditions. I've tried it DTL in both a tank and a dripper, MTL in a tank at various wattages, as well as a carto in a Vision Spinner II (the way my dad vapes) and it's all been delicious.

    I hope you all love it as much as I do, and thanks to the entire DIY community at large for making this labor of love.

    FLAVOR NOTES: (this part won't be as long as it probably should be)

    The Cream:
    (TPA) Bavarian Cream -
    I wanted something heavy and rich that wasn't an eggy custard for those sharp, tricky coffee notes to cling to. Bavarian Cream does exactly that, wrapping that fussy coffee in a warm, cuddly blanket of yum and telling it; “Shh... shh... you're okay baby, you're okay. Calm down. You're gonna' be delicious.” You can use any Bavarian Cream at 2% your little heart desires here, be it FW's, JF's, or CAP's. They're all pretty great and do just what we need them to do., I just prefer TFA's.

    (CAP) Sweet Cream & (CAP) Vanilla Whipped Cream -
    These lift the Bavarian Cream out of pudding territory and caress it into a sumptuous, idealized dairy base fit to lull that coffee into javalicious dreamland. You can sub with FA Cream Fresh or FLV Cream at 1%, and TPA/TFA Whipped Cream at 2% too.

    (CAP) Marshmallow -
    For sweetness and mouth-feel and luxurious, pillowy clouds. My last mix with this was still using the OG version of CAP's Marshmallow, and now that I have the "new" version in hand, I can understand where people might have issues with this. You absolutely CAN sub this for TFA/TPA Marshmallow at 1.5%.

    The Coffee:
    (MF) Coffee -
    This is the king of coffee flavors right here. I also enjoy INW Mocca, but it has some vanilla/chocolate notes to it, and I've heard FA Up is fantastic, but, I haven't tried that one. Medicine Flower's Coffee is dearly expensive and NEEDS a long steep time, but it is, so far, the best result I've ever had with a coffee flavor. No substitutions. Sorry.

    (FA) Tiramisu -
    As delicious as MF Coffee is, it's not without its problems. FA Tiramisu addresses those problems, and, at this tiny percentage, smooths them out perfectly. I've tried this recipe without it, a whole bunch of times, and, it just doesn't work. INW Mocca at 1% will sub here, too.

    Credit goes to @RuntDasterdly at ELR who named it Marietta - the coffee vape of your dreams..

    I just put "My Main Squeeze-cake" on ELR a couple of days ago, strawberry cheesecake. Recipe is pages back on this thread without the goofy name. The fruit is not important, you can add any combination of fruit. Next time I make this I will back the Mascarpone off just a hair, maybe to 0.6.

    I’m trying your mixed berry cheesecake Fran. The first couple draws were a nice tart fruit but now I’m getting more of the cheesecake and less tart. It steeped just over a month.

    I’m not 100% sure yet. It’s a little bit of a strange combination with the sour fruit and the cheesecake which I always think of as a sweet flavor. I’m going to keep using it and see over time. Not sure why but I made 30ml which is a lot for me.

    I almost forgot until I went back and looked at the recipe just now. I used strawberry trinity in it. Is the fruit sour to you?

    I like it but it needs some help in the juiciness part. It is a real boysenberry thou. If you are after the tart boysenberry this isnt it but its really good with a touch of flv boysenberry as its juicy and tart but to candied. Flv at maybe .25 and Pur around 4-6.
    I have used the pur alone in a lot of recipes like a berry blend or a cheesecake where the rest of the ingrediants make up the wetness

    The flavor is dead on for a boysenberry and not sweet but not tart either. I think you would like it

    Thanks Fran! Got the ingredients on my wishlist. What impact does the biscuit have in these recipes? Does it kind of keep it from being too sweet?
