    BachFromTheDead's Note:

    Yes, it can be done! Your cheesecake CAN hold all of the delicious flavors of coffee, WITHOUT using instant coffee cystals. My recipe uses double-strained coffee*See Below*, a method nearly anyone with a coffee maker can execute with no problem and it tastes fantastic. Texture-wise (so you know) it has more of a new york cheesecake texture (dense and rich) if you want a light fluffy cheesecake see my "raspberry De-lite" cheesecake recipe. Double-Strained coffee: Have 2 cups pre-brewed coffee on hand. Use the already brewed coffee as your water content in the coffee and double the amount of coffee rinds.

    Units: US | Metric




    1. 1
      Preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.
    2. 2
      Combine Graham crumbs and sugar in a small bowl. Add the butter and egg white and mix well.
    3. 3
      Press onto bottom of 9- inch springform pan that has been lined with foil (to keep from sticking). Bake just until edges feel firm and dry, about 6-8 minutes. Set aside.
    4. 4
      Reduce oven temperature to 325 degrees Fahrenheit.
    5. 5
      Combine first amount sugar, flour, and cornstarch in a small bowl.
    6. 6
      Set aside.
    7. 7
      In a stand mixer (or for the tenacious and plucky few, a large bowl) beat 1 pack cream cheese with the sour cream until airy. Add the second pack of cream cheese, eggs, and vanilla and beat until well incorporated and smooth.
    8. 8
      Gradually add flour mixture and beat until well blended. Add the double-strained coffee, ricotta, sugar, and egg whites. Beat until smooth.
    9. 9
      Pour half of the batter into prepared crust. Melt the chocolate in a microwave or by using the double-boiler method. Add to the rest of the filling in the mixer/bowl. Mix until incorporated.
    10. 10
      Pour the chocolate filling into the springform pan (you can get all fancy now, and do like swirls and things for a better presentation.
    11. 11
      Fill the water bath. Bake for 1 hour and approximately 15 minutes, or until almost set (center jiggles slightly, but is set 2-inches from the edge). Run knife along edges of cake before removing sides of pan. Cover and refrigerate for 6-8 hours or overnight.

      Well, I must say, I wasn't too sure about this recipe at first; but it certainly delivered, had a nice coffee flavour without the coffee crystals and was delicious to boot!
