Preparation steps

Start by making the coffee jelly. In a large bowl, sprinkle the gelatin over the coffee liqueur; let stand about 5 minutes or until the gelatin is softened. Add the hot coffee, sugar, and salt. Stir until the gelatin and sugar is completely dissolved.
Stir in the espresso beans. Pour the mixture into 8 individual molds, dessert glasses, custard cups, ramekins, etc. Refrigerate until the jellies are firm, at least 3 hours or overnight.
Next make the Grand Marnier Foam. In a mixing bowl, beat the cream, Grand Marnier and confectioners' sugar until thick.
Remove the dispenser from the box including the charger holder and two dispenser tips. Unscrew the top off the dispenser, then screw on the tip of your choice (straight or tulip) while holding in place the valve stem under the cap. Be sure to screw the tip on tightly. Make sure that the gasket (also called the O-ring) is firmly in place on the underside of the head.
Pour the foam liquid into the siphon of the dispenser. Do not exceed recommended amount. Screw the top evenly and firmly onto the bottle. Do not cross-thread. Place a n2o cartridge in the holder with the small end visible. Twist charger holder onto head until gas is released. A slight hissing sound will be heard. For a pint dispenser, use only one charger per filling. For a quart dispenser, use two chargers per filling.
Shake the dispenser 2 times. Turn the dispenser upside down. This is important, otherwise gas will escape and a proportionate amount of whipped cream will not be released. To assemble the dish, release the jellies from the molds and place on serving plate. Top with a cookie, and dispense a dollop of Grand Marnier foam on top and serve immediately. If the mixture is too runny, shake the dispenser a few more times and try again. If desired, the holder can be removed along with the used charger and the small cap put in its place.
When the canister is empty, simply discharge any remaining pressure in a sink or wastepaper basket and unscrew the top. The small brush that is included is useful for cleaning the tips. Do not put dispensers in a commercial dishwasher.
