- Preheat the oven on 180C and grease a 24cm springform pan with butter.
- Brew the coffee, and set it aside to cool to add to the cheesecake mixture later.
- Put the biscuits for the base into a sandwich bag and use a rolling pin to crush them. Pour the crumbs into a bowl and mix this with the melted butter.
- Spread the biscuit mixture evenly on the bottom of the springform pan and press it down to make a firm base.
- Whisk the cream cheese in an electric mixer on a low speed for 3 minutes. Slowly add the sugar, a pinch of salt and the flour. Mix thoroughly.
- Add the crème fraîche on a low speed and add the eggs one by one, until thoroughly mixed. Don’t mix for too long, because the mixture needs to be airy.
- Fold the espresso into the cream cheese mixture.
- Spoon the cheesecake mixture in the springform pan. Pick up the pan and drop it down onto the work surface to remove any air bubbles.
- Bake the cheesecake for 15 minutes on 180C, then lower the temperature to 110C for the remaining 40 minutes.
- Shake the springform pan carefully when you get the coffee cheesecake out of the oven. If the filling feels firm, your cheesecake is fully baked.
- Leave the cheesecake in the oven, with the door open, for another hour to cool.
- Finally put the baked coffee cheesecake in the refrigerator for a minimum of 6 hours to become more firm.
- Sprinkle grated dark chocolate over the cake as a topping, and serve. You could even add a few tasty chocolate-covered coffee beans.
