Set 3 strawberries for the garnish aside, and cut the rest into slices.
In a large bowl, beat the cream cheese with a hand whisk until creamy, gradually adding 2 tablespoons of the coffee. Then stir in the custard and finally fold in the whipped cream.
Brush the sponge fingers with the remaining coffee. Line a glass bowl with one layer of the soaked sponge fingers. Spread half of the strawberries over the sponge fingers. Sprinkle half of the grated chocolate over that and then half of the custard mixture. Repeat the layers in order again. Cut the remaining 3 strawberries in half and lay them on top of the trifle. Cover and leave in the fridge for at least 4 hours, best overnight.
