Coffee Jello with Red Bean Paste

Tanni made a dessert in the Gilmore Park Church Community Kitchen after Jane’s Polenta with Meat Sauce is ready. Tanni made a batch of the Coffee Jello the day before as it takes some time to set in the refrigerator.


The Coffee Jello is a great dessert especially after lunch. It’s not recommended for after dinner unless you use decafenated coffee. Tanni served the Coffee Jello with some homemade red bean paste and evaporated milk. I love the texture of the homemade red bean paste.
