An elderly friend of mine wanted coffee jello, naturally you can not find it in the store these days.

I was delighted to see your recipe, but you say to put it in a quart sized bowl. the liguids hardly level off to 2 cups. 1/4 cold water, and 1 3/4 hot coffee,are the measurement right. Usually when you make commercial jello it calls for 3 cups of water.

I don't want to overpower my 90 yr old friend. Thanks

I thought I'd heard it all, well almost. We learn something everyday, don't we? This is one I'd never even dreamed of. Wow! Tell your friend, I think this sounds awesome! I might just have to try it myself! Much love and blessings!
