3. In a large bowl, stir together the sugars and butter until they are well distributed.
4. In another bowl, whisk together the eggs, baking soda and vanilla.
5. In a third bowl, combine the coffee grounds and flour, then mix all three bowls together to form the dough. Lastly, fold in the chocolate chips.
6. Using a spoon, place uniform balls of dough on a lined baking sheet. Bake for 10 minutes or until the cookies are slightly brown.
