Advice from a Globetrotting Chef

  • To get the desired level of coffee flavor, brew anywhere from two to four shots of coffee (or three pods if using a Nespresso or similar) if you're using real beans. Just add enough liquid so that it equals 1 cup of boiling water when making jelly. A double espresso, for instance, is about 70 ml (2. To a mix containing 4 ounces, add another 180 milliliters, or 6 fluid ounces, of boiling water.
  • It's okay if your jelly cubes aren't perfectly square; they'll still look lovely when folded into a bowl of whipped cream, condensed milk, or melted ice cream.  
  • The shelf life of coffee jelly in the refrigerator is about 2 days. Always store perishables in an airtight container. As a result, the jelly won't get hard or chewy and will maintain its smooth consistency.
  • Take Care If Adding Fruit - Adding fruits like pineapple or kiwi will prevent the jelly from setting. These can be added on top after the jelly has set and served.

FAQs

Jelly won't set, help!

This could have been brought on by a few different factors:
Time: The gelatin might not have been given enough time to dissolve. Before adding the cold water, make sure it is thoroughly dissolved in the boiling water and sugar.
When boiled, not all gelatins have the same reaction. If you are unsure, please refer to the packet's directions. Some of these ingredients may require being dissolved in cold water or added at a specific temperature.
If it only partially sets, but remains soft, try adding an extra teaspoon of gelatin to the next batch. This should help achieve a firmer set.
There is still some uncertainty. If gelatin isn't doing the trick, try subbing in agar agar (kanten powder) instead.

How should I pair coffee jelly with other foods?

Unsweetened cream (thickened cream or pouring cream are both fine) is what we typically pair it with. Serve it with your favorite ice cream (we recommend vanilla or matcha!). sugar, sweetened condensed milk, red bean, chocolate shavings, coffee beans, etc.

Variations

  • Sugar-free coffee drinkers can omit this ingredient. It's about as sweet as "coffee with 1 sugar," so sweet-tooths can add more sugar. You can also reverse the traditional method by adding sugar to the cream.
  • Place the jelly in crystal or stemmed cognac glasses for an elegant presentation, or use small individual molds.
  • Neither Gelatin nor Agar Agar This can be transformed into a pudding with the addition of cornstarch, much like our vanilla blancmange pudding. Two tablespoons of the instant coffee can turn that pudding into a latte.
Placing a mint leaf on top of cream.

  • Coffee - If you're using real coffee, brew anywhere from two to four shots, or use three pods in a Nespresso (or similar) machine, depending on how strong you like your coffee. The 2 cups of boiling water must be exactly equal to the total liquid used in the jelly. A double espresso, for instance, is about 70 ml (2. 4 ounces, so add another 430 milliliters (or 14 fluid ounces) of boiling water.
  • Even if your jelly cubes aren't perfectly square, they'll still be stunning when folded into a bowl of whipped cream, condensed milk, or melted ice cream.  
  • Coffee jellies can be stored in the refrigerator for up to 2 days. You can extend its shelf life if you store it somewhere without air. By doing so, the jelly will be protected from becoming tough or chewy.
  • Fruits like pineapple and kiwi will prevent the jelly from setting, so use caution if adding them. If you want to serve them on top of the jelly after it has set, that's fine.
  • Flavoring - If you prefer your coffee without sugar, omit this. The sweetness level is roughly equivalent to "coffee with 1 sugar," so those with a higher tolerance for sweet beverages may want to add more sugar. If you prefer, you can switch things up and use sugar in the cream instead.
  • Stunning Presentation: Serve the jelly in individual crystal or stemmed cognac glasses.
  • Neither Gelatin nor Agar Agar Using cornstarch instead, you can transform this into a pudding-like dessert that's reminiscent of our blancmange vanilla pudding. Two tablespoons of the instant coffee can turn that pudding into a latte.
