    • let the brownies cool completely in the pan.

    Notes

    1. Coffee in this recipe can be espresso powder or instant coffee granules or powder. I have used davidoff instant coffee granules. 
    2. While using granules, your cream cheese mixture, might look grainy, but, while baking it will settle down. 
    3. I suggest to completely cool down the brownies before cutting, I made a mistake by cutting through it quite early.
