Preparation of the coffee semifreddo

  1. Start making coffee with the mocha until you get the required liquid.
  2. Put the coffee in the saucepan, then add the sugar and melt until it reaches a temperature of 121°C (when bubbles form on the surface you will be almost at the ideal temperature).
  3. While the coffee syrup is heating up, whisk the egg yolks with an electric whisk and gradually pour in the syrup so as to give birth to the eggs and obtain a sort of coffee cream which you will leave to cool. For this step it is essential that the syrup is dropped slowly while you continue to whisk the yolks quickly, so that the eggs are not cooked but pasteurized.
  4. Now whip the cream with an electric whisk and incorporate the mascarpone with a spatula, being careful not to disassemble everything .
  5. Gently add the egg and coffee cream
  6. Pour the mixture into a loaf pan or single-portion baking cups and place in the freezer for 6 hours .
  7. Before serving, remove the semifreddo from the freezer at least 20 minutes before enjoying it.
