1/2 cup cold coffee
3 envelopes unflavored gelatin (I used Knox)
3 1/2 cups hot coffee (Freshly brewed coffee would be perfect)
Sugar to taste (I used 1/3 cup)
Let the gelatin soften in 1/2 cup cold coffee for 3 minutes then mix into the hot coffee.
Stir until all the gelatin is dissolved.
Sweeten to taste.
Place the gelatin mixture into a dish and chill.
When quite cold and almost jellied, beat up until it becomes a light foam.
Pour into mold and place in the fridge.
Serve with whipped cream.
Tip: A metal dish chills faster than a glass or plastic one.
