Turn off heat. Add remaining coffee; stir until dissolved. Pour into 9-inch round pan; swirl to evenly coat bottom of pan with sugar mixture. Cool slightly.

Kraft Kitchen Tips!
How to Soften Caramelized Sugar Remaining in Pan
To soften any caramelized sugar remaining in bottom of pan after the flan is unmolded, dip pan in hot water to soften the sugar before spooning over the flan.
How to Crush the Cardamom Pods
Use a meat tenderizer or bottom of a heavy saucepan to crush the cardamom pods.
Special Extra
Strips of fresh orange peel make the perfect garnish for this dessert. Use a sharp knife to cut thick pieces of peel from the orange. Discard the peeled orange or reserve for another use. Twist the orange peel pieces, then place on top of dessert.
This show-stopping flan can be refrigerated up to 24 hours. When ready to serve, let flan stand in larger pan of hot water 4 to 5 min. before unmolding as directed.
