A refreshing Japanese summertime treat! My favorite way to serve it is with frozen whipped cream and chocolate sauce, although it's also delicious with ice cream, regular whipped cream, or flavored coffee cream! It can be served solid in glasses, or cubed in bowls.

WOW, this was absolutely delicious! I have to admit, I did not have the highest hopes for this, but I am so glad I decided to give it a shot anyway. So simple to prepare and very light and refreshing. I made this exactly as written and would not change a thing. I put the cubes in a glass and piped on whipped cream and dusted it with cocoa powder. This recipe is a definate keeper that I will be making VERY often~YUM! Thanks for sharing. :) Read More

Hesitated making this recipe but did because it is simple. Others in household like coffee; I do not. If it tasted as good as it smells brewing I might enjoy it. Without topping (whip cream ice cream or other) jello doesn't taste good. Will not be making recipe again. Coffee drinkers enjoy! Read More

This was a really refreshing coffee jello I ate right out of the cups no toppings required. I do love my coffee though. I used three single-serve packets of Splenda instead of sugar which worked great. I'm always looking for a shortcut so instead of dissolving the gelatin separately I just mixed it into the warm coffee/splenda before it came to boiling on the stove. This seemed to work very well but I'm not familiar enough with gelatin to know if that's recommended or not. Thanks very much for sharing. Read More

VERY NICE! This is coffee flavored jello. If you like cream in your coffee you will definitely want this served with whipped cream. This recipe is definitely for those who like coffee flavored treats. Next time I may add extra gelatine to make jigglers. 1 pkg. of gelatin is 2 1/4 tsp. Thank you Sarah for sharing your recipe.

So simple yet so good. Made the recipe as is but used strong coffee. We decided to serve them in glasses for individual portions. Topped with whipped cream and a dusting of hot cocoa mix. My coffee addict hubby-to-be loved this of course as did I and I don't drink coffee regularly. Very refreshing. Read More

This makes for a really easy and delicious snack. It sets up quicker if you fill it in two small bowls or glasses and set them in a bowl with ice in the bottom and then put it in the fridge. Mine set up in only 3 hours when I did that and it might've even set up earlier - I just wouldn't know 'cause I was out. I don't normally like coffee all that much so I wanted to find something to do with my instant coffee. This is a great solution! Read More

This is DELICIOUS. I used extra bold french roast and once the jelly was set just some Belgian chocolate coffee creamer. I sprinkled a little cocoa powder on top. I could it this whole bowl in one sitting! Read More

I just made this second time by a request from my husband who buy Japanese coffee jelly from store loved this. I doubled the recipe and used 4 spoonful of instant coffee. I mixed gelatin sugar and instant coffee all together first added 4T hot water and mixed for 3-4 minutes then added 4 cups of hot water. Made with Bourbon Whipped cream from this site but my husband prefers to eat with plain sweetened whip cream. It's great for hot summer days! Thanks for the recipe! Read More
