- 2 (7-gram) pouches gelatin (5 teaspoons)
- 1/2 cup water
- 1 3/4 cup whole milk
- 1/2 cup heavy cream
- 1 3/4 cups brewed coffee
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 6 tablespoons shaved chocolate (optional)
In a saucepan, sprinkle gelatin over water and let stand for 1 minute. Place over medium heat and stir constantly until granules are dissolved, about 3 minutes. Add milk, cream, coffee, sugar and vanilla. Stir over medium heat until sugar is completely dissolved, 3 to 5 minutes.
Pour mixture into 8 ramekins. Chill in the refrigerator until set, about 3 hours. To serve, dip each ramekin in boiling water for a moment to loosen panna cotta. Turn onto a serving plate and sprinkle with chocolate.
