1. Mix the cream and ¾ cup of the coffee and pour into an ice cube tray. Put in the freezer overnight to freeze solid.
2. Once the cream and coffee are frozen, put the remaining coffee into the blender jar with the sugar.
3. Add the frozen cubes and run on High until fully blended, about 45 seconds to 1 minute. The drink is very thick, so it will take time to blend.
4. Serve immediately. It may be easier to scoop than pour.
