I thought the coffee taste was a bit strong at first, but I'm sure for those that love coffee, this would be amazing. Everyone who tried it loved it! I personally didn't like it the day after I baked it, but it grew on me after a few days. It has a smooth texture, and a very rich, grown up taste! I used crushed chocolate graham crackers and doubled the crust in a 10 inch springfrom pan, and it was perfect. After you spread the crust mixture at the bottom of the pan, it will be a lot easier to flatten and even out the crust by placing a piece of plastic wrap over the mixture, and pressing firmly using the palm of your hand to shape it. I didn't make the whipped cream, as I think the cheesecake by itself was rich enough. Also, I made my own coffee liqueur using instant Arabica bean coffee, sugar, water, vodka and vanilla. If you type "homemade Kahlua" in a search engine, you will be able to find it easily. It tastes great, and I will probably be using it again soon to make Tiramisu.
