I made this for friends, some of whome dont even LIKE cheesecake, to serve with the dolce-gusto cappuccinos and macchiatos, and it was absolutely fabulous, everyone raved about it, it was so tasty, Im not even exaggerating when I tell you it was the best cheesecake ever!!!

Great dessert---Sad first review

I just had to review this dessert because of the immature and unjust previous review/reviewer. I made this for my boss (he loves coffee) and he did not get to take it home. Everyone at the office gobbled it up. I did make a few variations. I used 1/4 c of espresso instead of the instant coffee and water. Tastes really rich and creamy.
