  • 1 (9 inch) pie shell, baked
  • 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1/4 cup white sugar
  • 4 tablespoons water
  • 1 teaspoon unflavored gelatin
  • 1 tablespoon instant coffee powder
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 2 tablespoons white sugar
  • 2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 2 tablespoons confectioners' sugar
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1/2 teaspoon almond extract
