- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 1/2 cup granulated sugar
- 3 tablespoons cold water

Preheat oven to 325ºF.
In double-boiler over low-medium heat, slowly melt together 1 cup chocolate chips & butter. Stir occasionally until smooth in texture, ensuring to not boil chocolate. Set aside to cool.
In mixing bowl sift together flour, salt, baking powder & cocoa powder.
In separate mixing bowl beat eggs, oil, sugars, water, & vanilla. Set aside.
Slowly fold together wet ingredients into dry ingredients. Stir in chopped espresso beans, melted chocolate & raw chocolate chips. Mix until cookie batter is just smooth.
Form dough balls by hand. Place on a lined baking sheet, spacing 2-3" apart.
Bake in oven 12-15 minutes, or until cookies have risen, edges lightly brown & tops just begin to crack. Remove from oven. Cool on pan for a few minutes, then transfer to a rack for 7-10 minutes.
Pour ice cold glass of milk. Consume multiple handfuls of cookies. Consider sharing with friends. Repeat.
