1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1 cup granulated sugar
2 large eggs
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
3 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
3 tablespoons instant coffee
1 cup chocolate chips (I used mini chocolate chips)
3/4 cup shredded, sweetened coconut
Preheat oven to 350°F. Spray a baking sheet with cooking spray or line with parchment paper; set aside.
In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, cream together the softened butter, brown sugar, and granulated sugar until well combined. Add the eggs one at a time, then the vanilla; mix well until combined.
In a separate bowl, stir together the flour, baking soda, salt, and the ground coffee or espresso until combined. Slowly add to the butter mixture and mix until just combined, scraping down the sides of the bowl as needed. Stir in the chocolate chips and coconut.
Drop by rounded spoonfuls onto prepared baking sheets and baking for 10-12 minutes, or until done (I flattened mine slightly with the back of a spatula when removed from the oven).
