Make the coffee, add two tsp of sugar and let it cool down.
First let's make the brittle: put the sugar and the lemon juice in a non-stick pan and let it caramelize until it looks golden in colour.
When the sugar begins to show the first signs of a boil, add the hazelnuts and stir thoroughly. Add the nuts a little at a time and mix well.
Pour the mixture on a sheet of parchment paper on a flat surface then place another sheet on top and with a rolling pin make it nice and flat.
Remove the paper and with a sharp knife cut the brittle into small pieces
Whip the cream until firm then add the cold coffee and mix well
Put some small pieces of brittle and 1 tbsp of liquor at the bottom of each glass. With a spoon or with the help of a piping bag pipe out the cream and fill up the glass
Finish off with some pieces of brittle and 2 or 3 coffee beans.
