Brewed Coffee Kanten (ドリップコーヒー寒天)

Do you brew fresh coffee at home?
We do every single morning to wake us up. But, sometimes we can't finish drinking the coffee in a day. In such cases, we don't throw the leftover coffee away, but make coffee kanten instead!
Your afternoon refreshment will be ready with simple ingredients.
*The dessert in the photo is unsweetened Brewed Coffee Kanten and Latte Kanten topped with vanilla ice cream and milk.
