Light and fluffy. Not overly sweet. Seemed very coffee flavored. I was expecting a little bit more subtle. Next time I will try 1 tablespoon of coffee. There will definitely be a next time though, it was very good.

Sinfully delicious! I used Hershey's Perfect Chocolate cake with it and topped it with the chocolate ganache. The cream is soft and airy and pairs well with the otherwise heavy (not dense) chocolate flavors. I appreciate that the coffee flavor is subtle, yet still distinguishable.
