Trablit coffee extract?

Where can I find Trablit coffee extract? Sur la table doesn't have it.

  1. I'd call Cardullo's -- they've always good a pretty good idea of where (or if) this kind of thing can be found locally.

    It's also sold through Boston Gourmet Chefs --

      Thanks. Cardullos didn't have it. Boston gourmet chefs did, but it's $54 for 33 oz. I need about 1/2 an ounce!

    2. What is this stuff. My mother in law just brews up some really strong coffee when she needs coffee flavor for baking.

        AFAIK it's a reduction of coffee and sugar.

        And also FRENCH. And $50.

        1. re: FinnFPM

          I'll make a pot of coffee for $50 any time.

            But can you do it with a French accent?

            1. re: FinnFPM

              For $50 I'll make coffee with a French accent while wearing a French Maid's outfit.

      2. I've never heard of this before but $48 on Amazon, mon dieu!

        Extracts are generally alcohol based, so it seems like Kalua or a homemade coffee liqueur could be used as a substitute.

        However, according to this source ( it is just coffee and sugar, no alcohol is in it.

        Therefore, I would check out "Dave's Coffee Syrup" which is sold at Whole Foods. It's around $8 a bottle and is very high quality. For a lower brow (HFCS) version pick up a bottle of Autocrat, a Rhode Island classic.

          Thanks! I found some Nielsen-Massey coffee extract at Sur la Table so I'll get that.
