In a medium size saucepan, place sugar, instant coffee powder and sifted cornstarch. Mix well until combined.
Gradually pour lukewarm milk and mix until well combined and no lumps.
Bring to a boil over medium-low heat stirring often.
When start simmering, low the heat and let it simmer for about 6 minutes stirring constantly.
Remove from heat and pour into serving cups (I'm using 3 cappuccino cups and 3 espresso cups).
Cool down at room temperature then put in refrigerator for about 2 hours to chill.

Place coffee mousse on top of the chilled pudding and unsweetened whipped cream on top of the coffee pudding in the cappuccino cups and serve it.
