Do you have to store it in the fridge? Does it have an expiration date on it?

Bottle in dark glass bottle and seal tightly. Store in a cool, dry place for a few days. Its better to refrigerate extract. If you want an extract that keeps indefinitely, here is another good recipe. 250 g sugar 20 g glucose 50 g water Water as needed, to thin the caramel 200 g coffee powder Cook sugar, glucose, and water to burnt sugar stage(the stage after caramel). You must be very careful when cooking sugar. Add water to thin out slightly. Dissolve the coffee powder in the burnt sugar. This will keep for a very long long time. Burnt sugar is no longer sweet, acts as a preservative and discourages bacterial growth. Add to milk or water and sugar as needed, perfect for iced coffee preparations.

Hi. Am thrilled to have found this recipe but have 1 question. When one simmers the mixture for 30 minutes, is that covered or uncovered? Thanks so much. Sue.

Hi Sue, that is a good question. You can simmer the coffee concoction on a low flame, without covering the pan.
