Cohi Jello (Coffee Jello)

Cohi Jello is a culinary paradox: made from humble ingredients, it is the epitome of an easy, elegant, and exquisite dessert. Relatively fat-free, it is perfect on a sultry summer day after a luncheon or dinner party. As you can imagine, cohi jello is insanely popular throughout the hot and humid summer months of Japan.

4 cups good quality coffee
4 Tbsp sugar
2 Tbsp gelatin powder
8 Tbsp water
whipped cream for topping
chocolate coffee beans for garnish

Mix gelatin powder and water in a small bowl. Mix coffee, sugar, and gelatin in a medium sauce pan. Stir over low heat until sugar dissolves. Strain mixture and pour into 8 fancy crystal glasses or 8 humble jam jars, depending upon the mood and the occasion! Chill. Before serving, add a dollop of whipped cream on top of each jello and garnish with chocolate coffee beans. Serves 8 lucky people.
