An easy to make coffee flavored cheesecake, what's not to like?! This is a recipe from my b-i-l, Chef Norm, or better known in my family as the Cake King.

This was delicious! I didn't have coffee liqueur. Instead of trying to substitute another coffee product, I just used water to make it a plain chocolate cheesecake. It was very creamy and rich. I also left the cinnamon out of the crust. I followed the rest of the recipe exactly and it turned out great. I may try freezing a slice to see if it freezes well. Thanks for the great recipe, Bitsie!
