I think infusing liqueurs is pretty easy. Once I made limoncello using a Martha Stewart recipe; it didn't take long to make and was pretty tasty.

Bisected, what kind of coffee are you using? You'll probably get the best results if it's a really dark roast, espresso would be ideal. Vanilla pods are crazy expensive, though.
