Preheat the oven to 180 degrees.

In a mixing bowl, beat the butter and sugar.

Add 2 eggs and mix with a rubber spatula.

In a large mixing bowl, add all other dry ingredients (flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, salt and cacao nibs). Add the butter mixture and stir well with a rubber spatula.

Add the coffee until the batter is sticky. Rest in the fridge for around 15 mins.

Bake for around 8-9 mins and allow to cool on a wire rack (if you can stop yourself from eating them sooner!).
