From *The World Encyclopedia of Coffee* -- Per the intro, "This heavenly dessert could not be easier -- A froth of whipped coffee & brandy cream tops juicy grapes. A crisp cookie (or biscotti) is a delicious contrast to serve w/it." This recipe also suggests a garnish of frosted grapes & tells you how to do it, but 1 of RZ's own (Bergy) has done it for us w/her Frosted Green Grapes for Garnish. (Time does not include 1 hr sitting time for brandy/sugar mixture or 1 hr chilling time b4 serving, so plan ahead). *Enjoy* !
