Coffee Jello-No begging allowed!

Hello everybody,

Today I am going to share with you how to make a simple coffee jello that you can serve as a dessert.

The idea for this dessert actually came from my favorite Japanese restaurant in my neighborhood-Tokyo Japanese Restaurant.  They serve a similar coffee jello complimentary of the chef during dinnertime but not during lunchtime. This dessert is so addicting that it is not uncommon to see guests (other guests, not me) beg for it to be served during lunchtime. Last week, I was having my usual Saba Shioyaki set lunch at the sushi bar when I saw yet another lady beg for coffee jello. "Can I please have the coffee jello.... (bink bink, pretty please eye) I'll pay for it."  The waiter was too nice to turn her down, but when she came back with the jello, she said (maybe just a tad coldly), "This is only for dinner, next time I am going to have to charge you."  The guest blushed in embarrassment. I immediately felt sorry for the guest, but I also understand what it is like to have a food craving so powerful you would do anything just to have it.  After all, I have driven 9 hours (one way!) from Seattle to Redding, CA, just to have an In-N-Out burger.
This is why I am going to share how to make this addicting coffee jello so that you can enjoy it in the comforts of your own home, anytime, in any amount you want.  And, it is so simple. No more begging for this at Tokyo during lunch time.  :)

Remember.. if you "beg for coffee jello, you can only eat it once. Learn how to make coffee jello and you can eat coffee jello for life."  Yeah, yeah, lame. I am known in my circles for lame jokes. Bear with me here.
