    Sprinkle the sugar in a pan. Melt the sugar on temperate heat until dark red. Add water, the sugar will steam and hiss and become hard. Then add the rest of the milk. Sir with a wooden spoon until the caramel has dissolved. Pour in the custard powder/milk paste, and whisk until the custard has thickened. Take it off the fire, and add the still hot coffee.
