Method

  1. In a cup, dissolve the coffee in 1 tbsp boiling water. Put the dark and milk chocolate and coffee in a heatproof bowl set over a pan of shallow, simmering water. Stir until melted and smooth. (Alternatively, melt in the microwave, stirring every 30 seconds.) Remove from the heat and leave to cool a little.
  2. Using an electric whisk, gradually beat half of the cream into the chocolate mixture, until combined. Divide the mixture between 6 espresso cups (filling halfway) and transfer to the fridge while you whip the cream for the topping.
  3. In a clean mixing bowl, whip the remaining cream with the icing sugar, until soft peaks form.
  4. Remove the pots from the fridge and top each with a dollop of the whipped cream, some chocolate shavings and 1-2 coffee beans. Serve.
