Start by making the dough. Mix together yeast and warm water in a small bowl. The yeast will dissolve and become foamy in about 5 minutes. In a large bowl with an electric mixer, combine milk, butter, egg yolks, sugar, salt and cinnamon. Mix at a medium-high speed on the electric mixer for 3 minutes. Scrape the excess off the sides of the bowl and sprinkle flour on top. Let the dough rest, covered for 1-2 hours.

After it has rested turn the dough onto a lightly floured, flat surface. Roll dough to ½ inch thick and cut 3-inch circles with 1-inch holes out of the dough. Let the rings sit and rise for an additional 30 minutes.

Bring a pot half full of oil to a boil and drop 2 doughnuts in at a time. Fry the dough for 3 minutes each or until puffed and golden brown. Fetch with a slotted spoon and transfer to a wire rack over paper towels to drain.

Make the glaze while the donuts are cooling. Stir together the boiling water and instant coffee in a medium bowl until the coffee powder has dissolved all the way. Continue mixing in powdered sugar, corn syrup, vanilla, and salt. Dip warm doughnuts into glaze and replace on the wire rack after glazed. Sprinkle with sanding sugar if desired. Let sit 20 minutes before serving.
