Preheat the oven to 180°C, gas mark 4.


Combine the sugar and coffee in a small pot over a medium heat and stir until the sugar dissolves. Continue cooking for 5-10 minutes, or until caramelised.


Pour the mixture into a 20cm non-stick baking tin. Swirl it around to cover the base.


In a medium-sized bowl, whisk together the remaining ingredients and pour over the caramel.


Place the dish in a roasting tray large enough to accommodate it. Fill the tray with warm water, just enough to reach the mixture line.


Place the tray in the oven and bake for approx. 45 minutes or until just set.


Remove from the oven and cool to room temperature before refrigerating for at least 4 hours or overnight.


To unmold, place the bottom of the tin in warm water for approx. 5 minutes. Run a knife around the edges of the tin. Invert a serving plate over the tin, hold tightly and quickly turn over. Gently, shake the mold to release the flan.


Top with the coconut flakes and serve immediately.
