Kona Coffee Kahlua BrownieCoffee and baking go together like well brownies and a cup of coffee.  So why not go one step further and have coffee brownies?  If you like the idea of that, check out our Kona Coffee Kahlua brownie recipe below.

I do not know if it gets any better than coffee and chocolate together.  The flavor combination is like no other — it’s rich, bold, and sweet with an edge — it’s simply intoxicating.  Take one bite of these brownies, and you’ll understand.

You could share them with friends or family but then I guarantee there will be none left for you, maybe make an extra batch, just to be on the safe side.  Enjoy!


Kona Coffee Kahlua Brownie Recipe


  • 8 ounces unsweetened chocolate
8 ounces (2 sticks) unsalted butter (plus 1 tablespoon for the pan)
5 large eggs
  • 2 tablespoons finely ground Kona coffee
  • 1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract
  • ½ teaspoon salt
2 ¼ cups granulated sugar
  • 1⅔ cup sifted all-purpose flour
⅔ cup strong brewed, hot Kona coffee
  • ¼ cup Kahlúa


  1. Adjust a rack one-third up from the bottom of the oven and preheat to 375 degrees F.
  2. Use 1 tablespoon of the butter to grease an approximately 9 x 13 x 2-inch pan.
  3. Melt the chocolate and butter together in a heavy-bottomed saucepan, over low heat.  Stir occasionally and heat until the chocolate and butter are completely melted together.
  4. Remove from the heat, and set aside to cool to room temperature.
  5. In a large bowl, beat the eggs with the sugar, coffee grounds, vanilla, and salt at high speed for 5 minutes.
  6. Add the cooled chocolate mixture and beat only until mixed
  7. Add the flour and again beat only until mixed.
  8. In a small bowl, combine the hot coffee with the Kahlúa, and then pour the mixture into the batter. Mix to blend.
  9. Pour the batter into the prepared pan and place it in the preheated 375 degree F oven.
  10. Bake just until the edges look solid and there is little to no movement in the center, when you gently jiggle the pan, about 35 minutes.
  11. Let the brownies cool at least to room temperature before cutting and/or serving.
