  2. In a small saucepan, heat chocolate, 1/4 cup sugar, 2 tablespoons water, and coffee; stir constantly until melted. Add softened gelatin to the saucepan, and heat until completely dissolved. Remove pan from heat, and gradually pour chocolate mixture into beaten egg yolks, whisking constantly. Return the custard to the pan.
