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.
I'm using espresso, darkest roast I could find (based on the advice I got from consulting a few recipes, I didn't bother with the really expensive blends just the midrange Sainsbury's own brand stuff). I happen to own an old fashioned espresso maker (the sort you put on the hob), so I've brewed it with that for tomorrow.
I don't know how much vanilla pods cost in the USA, but they cost about £2 each here, which isn't much for about two bottles.
