Cooking time: 30 minutes plus 2 hours freezing time

Serves: 6

Coffee-flavoured sabayon

6 egg yolks
100g sugar
80ml water
20g Lavazza Kafa Forest Ground Coffee
3 gelatine leaves (6g), soaked in cold water and squeezed to remove excess water just before adding
450ml whipping cream

Italian meringue

100g sugar
40ml water
3 egg whites

Garnish

150ml whipping cream, whipped
18 chocolate-covered beans (chocolate feathers has been used in the photo)
Unsweetened cocoa powder

Equipment

Cafetiere
6 x 125ml ramekins

Method

Wrap 6 ramekins with a double layer of baking paper and secure with tape or string

To make the sabayon, beat the whipping cream until it forms soft peaks and reserve in the fridge. Heat the water to 95 degrees Celsius and infuse the coffee in a small cafetiere for 10 minutes, then strain into a mug or bowl and set aside

Combine the eggs and sugar in a bowl and whisk until pale and thick. Add the coffee and place over a bain marie, whisk until thick and creamy. Add the gelatine and whisk again until cool

For the Italian meringue, heat together the sugar and water in a saucepan until it reaches 118 degrees Celsius. Meanwhile, whisk the egg whites in a very clean, dry bowl until they start to form soft peaks. Gradually pour the cooked sugar syrup onto the eggs whites, whisking continuously until the meringue is cool, smooth and glossy

Gently mix the Italian meringue with the sabayon and fold through the whipped cream. Divide evenly between the ramekins and smooth the tops. Transfer to the freezer and leave to set for at least 2 hours

To serve, remove the paper collar from each ramekin, dust with cocoa powder and garnish with chocolate coffee beans. Serve with whipped cream.
