What does coffee do in brownies?
Coffee makes brownies taste more rich in chocolate flavor, as well as provides caffeine. A little bit of coffee goes a long way in enhancing the flavor.
How much coffee do I add to brownie mix?
You will need 2/3 cup strong coffee for this recipe. I recommend starting with 6 cups and simmering it until it boils down to 2/3 cup concentrate. This will make very strong coffee which is sure to make caffeinated brownies!
If you don’t have the time to simmer down the coffee, I also provide an easy way to speed up the recipe below.
How to Make Coffee Brownies
Coffee concentrate. To make these brownies extra strong, start with 6 cups of coffee, pick your favorite blend. Add to a large pot, bring to a boil and simmer until it reduces to 2/3 cup. This should take about 30 minutes to 1 hour.
Make brownie batter. In a large bowl, using an electric hand mixer, combine white sugar, brown sugar and butter. Add in eggs, vanilla, coffee, flour, cocoa powder, salt, baking powder. Finally stir in chocolate chips with a spoon.
Bake. Pour brownie batter into a 8×8 pan and bake for 33-35 minutes. Remove from oven and allow to cool before cutting up into squares.

Want to speed up the recipe?
Although I definitely recommend trying the original recipe, and reducing coffee from 6 cups to 2/3 cup concentrate, I know it’s time-consuming and sometimes you want brownies right away!
Alternatively you can use 2/3 cup strong brewed coffee. This doesn’t make the brownies as strong, but they’re still very delicious!
