"Stout" coffee?

Am I really the only one here who has mixed some roasted barley in with my beans, ground them together, and brewed the resulting "Coffee"? I liked it!

First I've heard of that... but it sounds interesting. How does it change the flavor of the coffee?

I've only done it once, so far. I put about 1 spoon full of roasted barley in enough coffee to make 2 big mugs. It added some roasty flavors, kind of like a good Colombian coffee has. I used a French press. I was worried about astringency, but I didn't notice any. I'm going to add more, next time.

I've done that before. I substituted 1/3 of my grounds with black patent. turned out pretty good. I played around with different blends of malts too. I might do this again, thanks to you...

you got me thinking about making a coffee liqueur with some roasted malt added.
