  1. Soak the gelatin in the cold water until softened. Stir in the boiling water and stir until the gelatin is dissolved.
  2. Add the sugar and stir until dissolved. Stir in the coffee. Pour into a mold and chill thoroughly.
  3. Coffee and Cream Jelly Variation: Do not mold the jelly. Refrigerate in the mixing bowl in which it was made. When it begins to stiffen, beat it until it is light and foamy. Beat 1 cup heavy cream with 2 tablespoons sugar. Fold the whipped cream and whipped jelly together and place in a mold. Chill thoroughly.
