Preheat your oven to 350*F. and lightly grease a 10" springform pan with veg. oil(or butter).
Sift the flour, baking soda, salt, mustard powder and spices together into a medium bowl.
Cream the butter and sugar together in a medium mixing bowl with an electric mixer on medium until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes. Stop the mixer twice to scrape the bowl with a rubber spatula.
Add the eggs one at a time to the butter mixture and mix on medium speed after each addition until the eggs are well blended but not smooth, 8 to 10 seconds. Scrape the bowl each time.
Add the molasses with the mixer on medium low speed and mix for 5 seconds. The batter will look separated.
Add half of the dry ingredients to the batter with the mixer on low speed and mix just until they have absorbed the liquid but are not thoroughly blended, about 10 seconds. Add half the coffee and fold it into the mixture with a rubber spatula.
Add the remaining dry ingredients on medium low speed and blend until they are almost incorporated, 10 seconds. Pour in the remaining coffee, then fold in by hand with a rubber spatula. Turn the mixer to low speed and blend until the batter is smooth, about 5 seconds.
Pour the batter into the prepared pan. Bake the cake on the center oven rack until the top springs back to the touch and a tester inserted in the center comes out dry, about 45 minutes. Cool slightly in the pan before serving. Enjoy!
