Espresso Chocolate Chip Cookies?

Most recipes are basically chocolate chip with espresso powder added. I don't like the grit of the powder in the baked cookies and I wanted them just STRONGER - more espresso flavor and also darker chocolate. I used 60% dark chocolate chips instead of the regular semisweet, upped the called for espresso powder from 1 1/2 tsps to 2 1/2, and then had the brilliant idea of melting half the butter and whisking the powder into the liquid so that the coffee flavor would be infused throughout the whole cookie and there'd be no grit.

It didn't work. I mean, it WORKED - the cookies are delicious - but they're not espresso cookies, they're just dark chocolate chip cookies. If you're looking for a really dark chocolate chip cookie, I've got your recipe for you right here, but I wanted espresso flavor. You can't taste the coffee in the cookies at all. Ideas? About ten or fifteen years ago, Starbucks used to sell a Latte cookie that was espresso-flavored dough with coffee-flavored white chocolate chunks; I'm up for experimenting with that creation as well...
