Fill a tumbler with ice cubes. Add vodka and coffee liqueur and stir with a bar spoon until the glass fogs up. Pour the cream into the shaker. Close the shaker tightly and shake briefly and vigorously until the cream is thick. Alternatively, briefly whip the cream with the hand mixer. Carefully pour the semi-stiff cream onto the drink, creating two layers. Garnish with a coffee bean.
