  Brush the inside of a 1 quart charlotte (cylindrical) or ring mold
  with a film of veg. oil. Invert the mold on paper towels to drain. In
  a heatproof mixing bowl, beat the egg yolks and sugar with a whisk,
  rotary or electric beater for 2 or 3 minutes, or until they are pale
  yellow and thick enough to form a ribbon when the whisk is lifted
  from the bowl. Beat in the cognac. Set the mixing bowl over a pan of
  barely simmering (not boiling) water, and continue beating for 3 or 4
  minutes, or until the mixture is foamy and hot. Then set the bowl
  over a pan of iced water and beat for 3 or 4 minutes longer, or until
  the mixture is cool again and as thick and creamy as mayonaise. In a
  heavy 4 to 6 cup saucepan, melt the chocolate with the coffee over
  hot water, stirring constantly. When all of the chocolate has
  dissolved, beat in the butter--one piece at a time--to make a smooth
  cream. Then beat the chocolate mixture into the egg yolks and sugar.
  In a seperate bowl, with a clean whisk or beater, beat the egg whites
  until they are stiff enough to form stiff peaks on the wires of the
  whisk. Stir about 1/4 of the egg whites into the chocolate mixture to
  lighten it, then very gently fold in the remaining egg whites. Spoon
  the mousse into the oiled mold or dessert cups and refrigerate for at
  least four hours or until it has set. To unmold and serve, run a long
  sharp knife around the sides of the mold and dip the bottom of it in
  hot water for a few seconds. Then wipe the outside of the mold dry,
  place a chilled serving plate upside down over the mold and, grasping
  both sides firmly, quickly turn the plate and mold over.  Rap the
  plate on a table and the mousse should slide easily out of the mold.
  If the mousse doesn't unmold at once, repeat the whole process. With
  a wire whisk, rotary or electric beater, whip the chilled cream in a
  large chilled bowl until it is firm enough to hold its shape softly.
  Garnish the mousse with the whipped cream.
