chocolate & coffee go well together.
go for it!

you could also add it to butter cream.

I find that coffee can make a chocolate cake kind of darker and richer without adding actual coffee flavour IYSWIM. Just makes the chocolate more chocolatey!

Mocha cake on purpose is also excellent.

Ina always adds coffee to her chocolate recipes.

Thank you all ...i generally use instant coffee and vanilla extract in chocolate cake...but surely will try this time with coffee extract instead of vanilla extract...but one more doubt..if i use coffee extract,then also should I add instant coffee???
