Coffee lovers – this extravagant, layered coffee cake recipe is for you! My Triple Coffee Cheesecake is a combination of Kahlua cheesecake, Kahlua-coffee mousse cake, and topped off with coffee-chocolate whipped cream. All three layers come together to form a gorgeous, show-stopping cheesecake that literally melts in your mouth. I love that this mousse cake recipe isn’t too sweet; it’s rich and flavorful, yet not overwhelming.

How It’s Made!
This epic coffee cheesecake recipe is made with three distinct layers, each adding a unique and delicious element to this recipe! I start with a chocolate graham cracker crust – the chocolate adds an extra bit of richness to every bite. The first layer is a traditional-style, baked coffee cheesecake. This heavier cheesecake layer is followed by light-as-air coffee mousse. This delicate coffee mousse cake recipe simply melts in the mouth! It’s made with cream cheese and whipped cream – it’s the perfect choice for this cake.
And to finish off the first two layers, I add a layer of coffee whipped cream. This is my favorite layer, too. Don’t get me wrong, the other layers are delicious but the whipped cream is so light and fluffy, this cake wouldn’t be the same without it! Use a fancy star tip for piping the coffee whipped cream on top for a show-stopping finish. And sprinkle the top with cocoa powder!
