...until the custard "coats" the spatula: you should be able to leave a clear trace with your finger, like in the photo.

Take off the heat immediately and stand the saucepan in cold water, while continuing to stir for a few more minutes to stop the cooking.

Your coffee custard is ready.

For the coffee flavour, you can use instant coffee or a coffee extract instead of the ground coffee.
