Whip the whipping cream to soft peaks. Set aside.
Beat the egg yolks with 2 tablespoons of sugar and then add the flour and cocoa. Mix and add the espresso coffee and lastly, the milk and another 2 tablespoons of sugar. Put the mixture in a saucepan and cook gently until the cream is dense but still soft.
