  1. Place the chocolate and coffee in a heatproof bowl over a pan of simmering water and heat gently until the chocolate melts, stirring occasionally. Remove from the heat and leave to cool for a few minutes.
  2. Beat the yolks and gradually stir them into the chocolate mix. Stir in the alcohol.
  3. Beat the egg whites until stiff in a clean bowl with an electric mixer. Carefully fold into the chocolate mix until combined.
  4. You can pour the mousse into individual glasses or into a serving bowl. Chill for several hours – preferably overnight, if you can wait that long!
