[Homeroast] DIY coffee liqueur request

To make a Kahlua type liqueur I start with a cold press coffee concentrate, add sugar (or simple syrup), vodka and vanilla to taste. Dilute as required. I usually dilute with ice cream.

Not sure how a "hot" infuse would happen without evaporating the alcohol . Interesting question though. Just asked my partner and she said she once had a recipe but can't remember it . She did say it was vodka based. I'm wondering how a brandy base, or even a whisky base, would do. I am going to be following this thread with interest .

So, I'm actually thinking ahead for the holidays.  Looking at a homemade coffee liqueur.  Does anyone have any recipes they have actually tried? 

I've done the web scouring bit and there are two major camps.  Hot and cold infused (we are not going to talk instant). 

Also, I'm not adverse to just devising my own recipe, but there is on thing I'm unclear on.  How strong should the resulting liqueur be?  And 'to taste' isn't helpful. I'm meaning drip, moka, espresso strength for instance for 'traditional'.  I've seen 1:4 to 1:8 (grounds to liquid).  And how much should that change whether it is hot or cold brewed?
