Melt-in-the-mouth, silky smooth Coffee Cream is the perfect Summer dessert

Who loves Coffee ?? Most people, I think, but I only have a cup .. maybe once every three/four months. Hubby enjoys a cup now and then, the kids – not at all.

This Coffee Cream dessert, however, we have at least once a month !

I Prefer Iced coffee, especially after a visit to the supermarket. I love the one our favorite store sells right at the entrance door, and then of course, some kind of coffee dessert.

It shouldn’t be overpowering but the coffee taste must definitely be there.

My very first food post was actually Coffee Jello’s which I love to make and definitely to eat!

A little of the coffee “sunk” to the bottom (which is now the top after I removed it from the mold) , however, the flavor is a bit stronger in the darker part but still present in the lighter part.
