Mousse di caffé
The brilliant thing about this coffee mousse is its simplicity. All you need is four ingredients, a cup of strong coffee and an electric mixer. No gelatine to complicate matters. Just mix all the ingredients and let them cool in the refrigerator for a couple of hours. Decorate with chocolate beans and ready-made biscuit sticks and dessert is ready.
