1.  In a medium heat-proof bowl, mix the espresso powder with the boiling water until dissolved. Add 1 1/2 cups cold water; set aside.

2.  With an electric mixer, beat the cream cheese with the heavy cream and sugar until light and fluffy.

3.  Spread a few tablespoons of the cream-cheese mixture in the bottom of a 2-quart serving dish. Separate the ladyfingers. One by one, dip a third of the ladyfingers in the espresso, then arrange in the bottom of the serving dish. Spread with a third of the cream-cheese mixture. Repeat twice with the remaining ladyfingers, espresso, and cream-cheese mixture. The tiramisu can be refrigerated, covered, for up to 1 day.

4.  Dust with cocoa just before serving.
