This was really delicious! I prepared it for all of us 4 for breakfast and we enjoyed it with a fresh croissant.<br/>I used Asian coffee ("robusta") quality and we topped it with beaten light cream instead of ice cream as it's now winter and we like warm beverages. The final topping was cinnamon!<br/>Mmmhh a great start in the morning!
