French Coffee (Caffe Francais)

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by Sharon123

A great treat from France! For a twist, you add the topping before the coffee. The dollops of freshly whipped sweetened cream will rise through the coffee for a floating cloud effect. Adapted from Cook time is time to brew coffee.
