    I'd go with the coffee over the anisette.

        +1 on the coffee and I add Godiva chocolate liqour.

        Do you have almond extract? Just reduce the amt. required of the recipe. Extract has more intense flavor. Otherwise, I'd use cold brewed coffee or the coffee liqueur you have on hand.

          I've never used almond liqueur in Tiramisu. The coffee liqueur will be just fine.
