The trend among most coffee cooks is to use the most basic coffees (or coffee flavorings) to achieve the desired effect. Personally, we’re firm believers in quality coffees for quality results.
Of course, some would say that to use the best Kona coffee Hawaii produces in a conventional recipe would be sacrilegious. That the only way to enjoy the best Kona coffee is to drink it...end of debate.
Understandable, but the simple fact of the matter is that if you love Hawaiian coffee, you’ll love it in all its forms. The same being true for all gourmet coffees, which can bring so much more to your favorite recipes than the usual generic jar.
And what better way to enjoy your favorite coffee than with a sumptuous dollop of the most delicious coffee mousse imaginable?
What’s great about this particular recipe is how there is plenty of scope for experimentation. Personally, we recommend using the best Kona coffee beans (or the nearest available equivalent) to give it an ultra-premium edge. The recipe works just fine with generic coffee, but there’s something about the flavor profile of Hawaiian coffee that really brings it together.
We’ll leave that for you to decide - here’s a rundown of everything you will need to put this perfect pudding together:
As for putting it all together, it really couldn’t be easier:
Of course, the coffee liqueur is strictly optional, and can be excluded to make a non-alcoholic version.
Great for preparing in advance, the finished mousse can be stored covered in a fridge for a good 2 to 3 days. It can also be transformed into an extraordinarily decadent coffee ice cream, simply by freezing and allowing to thaw to the desired consistency.
