The Italians knew what they were doing when they mixed strong 100% kona coffee with the light yet rich zabaglione.

Kona Coffee Tiramisu Ingredients:

    • 2 cups boiling-hot Kona Coffee
    • 4 tablespoons fresh ground 100% kona coffee (Kona strong – not bitter with more than hint of chocolate)
    • 1/2 cup plus 1 tablespoon sugar, divided
    • 3 tablespoons Tia Maria (coffee liqueur)
    • 4 large egg yolks
    • 1/3 cup dry Marsala
    • 1 pound mascarpone (2 1/2 cups)
    • 1 cup chilled heavy cream
    • 36 savoiardi (crisp Italian ladyfingers; from two 7-ounce packages)
    • Unsweetened cocoa powder for dusting

Kona Coffee Tiramisu Preparation

    1. Stir together 2 cups 100% kona coffee, 1 tablespoon sugar, and Tia Maria in a shallow bowl until sugar has dissolved, then cool.
    2. Beat egg yolks, Marsala, and remaining 1/2 cup sugar in a metal bowl set over a saucepan of barely simmering water using a whisk or handheld electric mixer until tripled in volume, 5 to 8 minutes. Remove bowl from heat. Beat in mascarpone until just combined.
    3. Beat cream in a large bowl until it holds stiff peaks.
    4. Fold mascarpone mixture into whipped cream gently but thoroughly.
    5. Dipping both sides of each ladyfinger into 100% kona coffee mixture, line bottom of a 13- by 9- by 3-inch baking pan with 18 ladyfingers in 3 rows, trimming edges to fit if necessary. Spread half of mascarpone filling on top. Dip remaining 18 ladyfingers in 100% kona coffee and arrange over filling in pan.
    6. Spread remaining mascarpone filling on top and dust with cocoa. Chill, covered, at least 6 hours.
    7. Let tiramisu stand at room temperature 30 minutes before serving, then dust with more cocoa.
