Delicious!! Next time I may cut down on the brown sugar just a bit, possibly a tiny bit more coffee and cocoa. This was really really good, thank you!!

This pie is absolutely delicious! I followed the recipe exactly and experienced no problems. The result was gooey and delectable. I suggest pairing a slice with a cup of coffee to offset the richness.

I made this into 24 pre-made tart shells and they turned out great! I baked them for 8 minutes at 400F and then 10 minutes at 350F. I would make this again and consider adding a dark chocolate drizzle on top once they're cooled. I had a bit of the chocolate mixture leftover, so I added whole hazelnuts to it, chopped the mixture in my blender and baked it in a few muffins cups on top of oreo cookie crumbles. Yum!

This came out tasting great. I did modify it a bit. I used a teaspoon of instant coffee dissolved in a tablespoon of water and then added the eggs. I used a ready-made pie crust and pre-baked as directed. After following the directions carefully, it was still rather runny so I added another 1/4 cup at least of cocoa and also about a 1/4 cup of cornstarch and beat those in well in the mixer. I also sprinkled the top with some sea salt just because I wanted to. Then I thought I was turning down the heat from 400 degrees to 350 degrees after the first 10 minutes but accidentally changed the timer instead. About 20 minutes later I could smell the crust getting brown so I opened the oven to add a cover around the edge and realized what I had done. I could tell the pie was ready so I took it out and cooled it almost completely before slicing. It was just a little warm and stayed together very nicely and tasted very good. We ate it so fast that I was planning to add some whipped cream. Maybe next time because I'll make this again.

This pie is amazing... The batter, for me came out a bit runnier than expected, but I think if I had beaten the batter more thoroughly like for 45 sec to a minute between each egg addtion it would have been thicker. At any rate, I baked it for the listed time and pulled it out. What I love about it is that it isn't so sweet as chocolate pecan pies made with chocolate chips. The cocoa powder really cuts the sweet. Delicious!

This is an amazing pie recipe. I made a double batch and there was extra for a little personal pie. The previous rater must have made some errors in cooking, because the consistancy and color of the batter was like a german chocolate cake batter. It was thick and rich. After I put the batter in the pans, I tapped it a couple of times to release the bubbles and had fun popping them with a toothpick. If you have a big, deep pie pan this recipe will not come up shy. The espresso and chocolate compliment each other and make for an impressive dessert. I baked it in a convection oven. I used a lined cookie sheet to collect spills, but there weren't any. I highly recommend this pie. Yum!

The taste combination is phenomenal, but the cooking instructions were incomplete. The recipe says the final mix should be thick and custardy; however, it was much more runny than described. It also states you should make sure the center still quivers slightly and to not overbake it. I followed the baking instructions, even baking it for a couple of minutes longer because I suspected it wasn't done. I knew as I took it out that I should probably follow my instincts rather than the instructions, but I didn't--and it was indeed not done and was very runny in the center.
