Let cool. Combine coffee mixture, vodka, and coffee beans; pour into a 1-gallon jar. Cover tightly, and store in a dark place at room temperature at least 2 weeks. Shake jar gently once daily.
Pour mixture through a wire-mesh strainer lined with 2 layers of cheesecloth into jars, discarding coffee beans. Cover tightly. Store at room temperature.
