First you will need to find some where to buy Agar Agar powder sweetend or unsweet depending on what you like. I picked mine up at Hong Kong market for $ 1.79 a box. You are also going to need 1 large heat safe mesuring cup, coffee, water, a medium size pot, a whisk, molds of some sort and the optional items sugar, creamer of your choice and whip cream.

This is the sweetened brand I picked up.
Get your coffee pot ready
add 8-10 teaspoons of coffee..
add 6 cups of water to the coffee maker or fill it up to the 10 line on the pot thats about 6 cups
add coffee to pot and bring to a low boil. The agar agar is sweet but I add another cup and a half of sugar. The addition of sugar and creamer is up to your taste.
here are the instructions on the back of the box I used to follow. I used coffee insted of water if thats not already obvious.. I also added sugar and hazelnut creamer to mine
when the coffee comes to a boil dissolve sugar optional add creamer optional and stir next add the Agar Agar and whisk for 1 minute assure everything is dessolved or it will come out grainy..
pour mixture into a heat safe large mesuring cup over the sink!!!
add to any type of mold..
now in the fridge for 2-4 hrs..
remove from fridge and cut to desired shapes and sizes.
add to desired eatting platform I used a wine glass. I know that glass is not all the way full but there is about a cup and a half of coffee in there and I didnt want to be up all night. As you can see I added whip cream to mine to give it even more goodness... Lastly enjoy your creation..
