French Coffee (Caffe Francais)

French Coffee (Caffe Francais) created by Rita1652

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 About.com. Cook time is time to brew coffee.

    I loved this!! I didn't get the complete cloud effect because i used the tassimo to make the coffee into the creamed mug but the tase was so good and there were some clouds lol

    Made for ComfortCafe Summer 2009. Thjis is more a dessert than a regular cup of coffee. I used my stick blender to whip up the cream right in my coffee mug. Perfect. I used a mocha coffee blend so it was double dessert drink for me. Love it.
