Coffee is a pungent, risky ingredient. If you’ve never baked or cooked with it (or even drank a mug in your life), this might seem intimidating or maybe just not your cup of tea – er, java. Though it might be nerve-wracking to venture into unchartered territory, the payoff is huge. With the combination of coconut, dark chocolate and coffee, these powerfully flavorful cookies will — at the very least — awaken your imagination.
