  • 2/3 cup caster sugar

Method

  1. Process flour, cocoa powder, butter and icing sugar in a food processor until mixture resembles crumbs. Add egg yolk and water; process until dough just comes together. Turn out onto a lightly floured surface; knead until smooth. Shape into a disc; wrap in plastic food wrap. Chill for 15 minutes.
  2. Preheat oven to 200°C/180°C fan-forced. Roll out pastry between sheets of baking paper to a 25cm round, about 5mm thick. Line a 22cm (base measurement) round fluted tart pan with removable base with pastry. Trim edge. Line pastry with baking paper. Cover base with dried beans, rice or pie weights. Place tart pan on an oven tray. Bake for 10 minutes. Remove weights and paper. Bake for a further 10 minutes or until just coloured. Reduce oven temperature to 160°C/140°C fan-forced.
  3. Meanwhile, heat cream, milk and cinnamon in a saucepan over moderate heat until mixture just comes to the boil. Remove from heat. Remove cinnamon stick. Stir in essence. Whisk extra egg yolks and caster sugar in a heatproof bowl until pale and creamy. Stir in milk mixture until combined.
  4. Pour egg mixture into pastry shell. Bake for 40 minutes or until just set at centre. Remove from oven. Cool in pan. Chill for 2 hours or until firm. Remove from pan. Dust with extra cocoa powder and extra icing sugar. Serve topped with coffee beans.
