I think you should have given the definition of the strongly brewed coffee! I used 3 tbsp per 3/4 of instant coffee (which is about 3x of the normal doze, worked great for me in a banana-coffee bread), and I had to increase, and increase, adn increase the recipe to get rid of at least some bitterness by adding water and tomato paste! It was not fun, and the sauce was still bitter even with dilution. Not all of us are coffee drinkers who instinctevly know what 'strong coffee' is!
