Chocolate Coffee Bread is the best coffee bread you will ever have! Incredibly tender, moist and flavorful, loaded with chocolate chips and topped with melted chocolate.

We love Chocolate Cakes that are moist and tender like these Banana BreadChocolate Brownie Cake, and Chocolate Baileys Poke Cake.

Chocolate Coffee Bread Recipe

Coffee and chocolate are a match made in heaven, how perfect is it to have both together! This Chocolate Coffee Bread is super moist, tender and chocolaty and loaded with deep chocolate chips and delicious flavor. I used a mix of all purpose flour and coconut flour to achieve the most tender and divine crumb.

This dessert is super to make with a few ingredients which you probably already have available in your kitchen. Also, you can adjust the flavor by using more or less of the ingredients you like. Similarly, you could add some almonds or shredded pecans to it. Whichever way you go, this delicious dessert is guaranteed to make you want more!

Why You’ll Love This Chocolate Coffee Bread:

  • It is rich and chocolaty this is a show stopper dessert.
  • If you love coffee this dessert is a great reflection of that.
  • It can be made 1 or 2 days in advance so you don’t have to worry about the last-minute dessert.

Recipe Tips

  • Use quality chocolate – since it is the main ingredients here, make sure you use quality chocolate.
  • In addition, go with larger chocolate chips, as they don’t fully melt when baked and are amazing when you bite into them!
  • You can control the sweetness level by using semisweet or bittersweet chocolate in this recipe
  • Also, if you want to add some crunchiness to it, add some crushed almonds, or pecans to the mix. 

How Long Will Chocolate Coffee Bread Stay Fresh?

It can be stored wrapped in plastic wrap at room temperature for about 4-5 days. After a few days, you could heat it up in the microwave for about 15 seconds. It will make it moister and also taste fresher.

Can You Store and Freeze This Chocolate Coffee Bread?

Absolutely! Cool the cake completely and fully wrap it in plastic wrap, tightly. After that wrap in aluminum foil. Freeze for up to 2-3 months. Defrost before slicing.

Chocolate Coffee Bread
Author: Catalina Castravet Serves: 10 slices
Prep time: 20 minutes Cook time: 1 hour Total time: 1 hr 20 mins


  • 1 cup  unsweetened cocoa powder 
  • 2/3 cup  sour cream 
  • 1 cup  strong hot coffee 
  • 1 1/4 cup  all-purpose flour 
  • 1 cup  coconut flour 
  • 1 tablespoon  baking powder 
  • 1/2 teaspoon  salt 
  • 1  stick unsalted butter  (melted)
  • 1 cup  brown sugar 
  • 1 cup  white granulated sugar 
  • 6  large eggs 
  • 1 tablespoon  vanilla extract 
  • 1 cup  chocolate chips 


  • 4 ounces  dark chocolate chips 
  • 3  coffee beans  (grated)


  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.
  2. Spray a bread/loaf pan with non-stick cooking spray or coat it with butter and flour.
  3. In a medium bowl, whisk together cocoa with sour cream and hot coffee until smooth. Set aside to cool.
  4. In a separate bowl, combine both flours with baking powder and salt.
  5. In the bowl of stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, beat together eggs and sugars until light and fluffy, add the butter, vanilla extract and whisk together on medium speed until very light and creamy, scraping the sides of the bowl as necessary.
  6. Add the flour mixture in 2 additions, alternating with the cooled cocoa mixture, ending with the flour mixture. Mix until just combined. Fold in chocolate chips and pour batter into the baking pan.
  7. Bake for 50 - 60 minutes, rotating halfway through the process, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out with a few moist crumbs.
  8. Let the bread cool into the pan for 10 minutes, and then remove to a wire rack to cool completely.
  9. Bring a medium saucepan half filled with water to a boil. Place chocolate in a medium bowl set over the saucepan of simmering water, let it melt, stirring just a few times. Make sure the bowl doesn't touch the boiling water, to avoid overheating. Remove bowl from heat and pour the chocolate over the bread, top with chocolate chips and grated coffee beans.
  10. Let it stand for 15-20 minutes before serving for the chocolate to settle.

I've been following Thermos, this recipe sounds so decadent - can't wait to try it.



You don't have a measurement listed for the unsweetened cocoa powder, just the number 1. Is it 1 cup, 1 tbsp? TIA!


Hi Emily, its 1 cup, sorry, I have updated the recipe card!

This is a really great post. I saw it on your Facebook and commented there, too. I am not a coffee person, but my husband is and he LOVES chocolate. How unique is this? Pinning and going to surprise him with it. The Thermos mug is also a must. He takes his everywhere, btw.

Can the coconut flour be substituted with all purpose flour?


Sorry, not in this recipe.
