Place in fridge.

Stir coffee and warm water in a small bowl until coffee dissolves; cool for 10 minutes.

In a separate bowl, beat egg whites with clean whisks till soft peaks form.

Gradually add sugar, a little at a time, until sugar dissolves and mixture becomes glossy.

Tip of the day

 
Baobab leaves
African cooks use leaves from the massive baobab tree to thicken their stews. Like okra, the leaves give the dish a congealing texture that's characteristic of West African stews. Okra will give a similar effect if you can't find baobab leaves.
