1 ½ cups of milk
1 ½ to 2 tablespoons of instant coffee
1 cup fresh cream

6) Let cool in the freezer.
7) Set the freezer to lowest temperature of the fridge.

10) Repeat the freezing and stirring (or blending) several times until satisfactory smooth texture is achieved.
Tips for making smooth texture :
1) Freeze the ice-cream quickly at very low temperature. Therefore set the freezer temperature to lowest temperature possible and wait one hour before putting the ice-cream inside.
2) Use metal (or stainless steel) container as it is a better heat conductor than plastic container. This will aid in increasing the rate of freezing.
3) The amount of sugar specified in the recipes cannot be reduced without affecting the texture of the ice-cream.
