Line a baking pan with plastic wrap, making sure all the sides of the tray are covered. Set aside.
In a medium saucepan, mix together milk and instant espresso powder. Set over medium heat.
In a small bowl, whisk together sugar, cornstarch, and salt. Add mixture to milk. Stir constantly until milk mixture comes to a boil and has thickened. Remove from heat.
In a large bowl, whisk egg yolks. As you whisk yolks, slowly pour in heated milk mixture. Continue to whisk until all the milk has been added to the yolks. Pour yolk-milk mixture back to the saucepan. Set over medium heat and stir constantly until mixture comes to a boil.
If desired, strain mixture through a fine sieve and into a clean bowl. Otherwise, simply transfer mixture to a clean bowl. Add coffee liqueur. Add butter 1 tablespoon at a time. Stir until butter is incorporated before adding the next tablespoon. Stir coffee cream until all of the butter has been incorporated.
Pour the hot cream into the prepared plastic wrapped sheet pan. Spread evenly. Cover with plastic wrap, allowing plastic wrap to touch custard. Freeze for 10-15 minutes until the cream has cooled to room temperature. Remove from freezer and distribute among crust lined jars. Place plastic wrap directly on top of cream. Let chill in the fridge for at least an hour to set.
