Combine flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt in bowl; set aside.
Place sugar and 3/4 cup butter in another bowl; beat at medium speed, scraping bowl often, until creamy. Add cooled chocolate, eggs and 2 teaspoons vanilla; continue beating until well mixed. Add flour mixture to butter mixture alternately with 1 1/3 cups coffee, beating at low speed just until well mixed.
