Mix the melted chocolate with oil, cream, and coffee, then set aside.

In a separate bowl, combine sugar and eggs, mixing until the sugar dissolves. Add the chocolate mixture.

In another bowl, sift together flour, baking powder, and baking soda. Add to the mixture in two parts, folding gently with a spatula, being careful not to overmix.

In a separate bowl, sift together flour, baking powder, baking soda, and cocoa. Add to the mixture and mix just until the ingredients are combined.

Pour the batter into the prepared mold and bake for 30 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Let it cool and then place it on a wire rack.
