Coffee Panna Cotta

Coffee Panna Cotta

Coffee Panna Cotta with Kahlua Jelly is a way to consume jelly or jello with as much glee as you would when you were a child and have fun knowing it’s flavors you probably like more than the traditional overly sweet kinds you had when you were a kid.

Probably the most favorite way to celebrate galentines/valentines is non pink desserts, and though a few valentines have see chocolate last year did have chocolate, but there is also space for couples, in all the ways they exist to have desserts that contain no chocolate or pink…enter panna cotta.

Coffee Panna Cotta with kahlua

What are your thoughts on panna cotta? Likely you enjoy it, particularly if you loved jello as a kid. Making it yourself could honestly not be easier and this one includes coffee which, despite the amount of coffee in this coffee, doesn’t overpower the smooth creaminess.

If we can talk about the kahlua jello on top, not only does this really add an adult layer to this dessert, but the coffee liqueur is a beautiful topping and really makes this dessert thoroughly enjoyable.

This Coffee Panna Cotta has been perfected for two, though could easily be doubled or tripled for more. Let me know your thoughts on coffee desserts in the comments below as I imagine there are some strong feelings.

Using Agar Agar

Agar agar is a plant based gelatin obtained from seaweed and comes in a variety of ways such as flaked, bars or strands, however, this recipe requires agar agar powder which dissolves more quickly.

Agar agar needs to be measured because even 1 or 2 grams more or less can result in a very different consistency.

Agar agar also needs heat to dissolve which is different from gelatin which can dissolve at room temperature. So you will need a candy thermometer to ensure it reaches 85C/185F for the agar agar to dissolve.

How to prepare the Coffee Panna Cotta with Kahlua Jelly

  • Prepare your coffee panna cotta: Combine all ingredients and cook.
  • Refrigerate to set: You want the coffee panna cotta set before making the jelly.
  • Make your kahlua jelly: Combine all ingredients and cook.
  • Allow to set: Give the jelly time to set.
  • Serve: Grab some spoons and tuck in!

Tips to make the best Coffee Panna Cotta with Kahlua Jelly Notes

Amount of Kahlua in the recipe: The amount of kahlua in the jelly is enough that despite heating to set the agar agar you can still taste the liqueur.

Setting the panna cotta to match the photos: If you would like to create the uneven coffee panna cotta in your home, simply set up a shelf and trial the right leaning height for your glasses whilst they’re empty to lean into something (I used the edges of the fridge as the set mark to lean into). Ensure you have an item that will support and balance your glasses, such as a used block of butter or even a small bag of rice that you could pop into the fridge.
