Coffee Gelee` for Taste Creations

I am the odd ball at my house as I do not drink coffee.  I absolutely love the way it smells but I have never found a way to enjoy coffee.  Until now.

Our Taste Creations bloggers decided on coffee for our challenge this month.  I knew I would have to work hard at finding something that I would want to share.  My husband knows a lot about coffee and how to prepare it in different ways, so I considered having him write the post.

Then I heard about coffee gelee`.

Coffee Gelee` is a satiny sort of jello (it seems a shame to compare the two, but you can maybe understand a bit better!)  It is so refreshing, and the bitterness of coffee is nearly non-existant!
