A very rich, no-bake pie. Easily prepared in a food processor. It is best to make this pie several hours in advance, I prefer to chill it overnight. Add the whipped cream and garnish just before serving.

- 1 teaspoon sugar
- 2 ounces unsweetened chocolate, chopped
- 1 tablespoon instant coffee powder

- 2⁄3 cup white sugar (for a bitter sweet taste, add more if you prefer a sweeter filling)
- 2 eggs
