 In a large, wide nonreactive saucepan, combine the coffee, brown sugar, zest
 and juice of the oranges, ginger, and cinnamon stick and bring to a boil.

 while making the sauce.
 
 Dissolve the cornstarch in the orange juice and add to the small saucepan
 containing the cup of poaching liquid. Bring to a simmer and cook for 3
 minutes until lightly thickened. Remove from the heat and set aside to cool.
 
 Serve the fruit sliced in shallow bowls or on plates. Spoon some of the
 sauce over and around the slices; garnish with 2 or 3 orange segments and
 mint sprigs. Serve the Cinnamon Twists on the side.
