In a double-boiler, stir chocolate, sugar and butter over simmering water. Remove from heat and cool to room temperature. Whisk together flour, sifted cocoa, baking powder and salt. In a separate bowl, beat eggs, espresso powder and vanilla until foamy. Beat into cooled chocolate mixture. Sprinkle small amount of flour in chocolate mixture and fold. Repeat in small increments until all flour is added and well blended. Spread batter evenly in pan. Bake for 22 - 25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center is barely moist. Remove from oven and cool completely in the pan. Run a knife around the edge of the pan to loosen. Place a rack on top of pan and invert. Peel off paper. Invert again onto cutting surface. Trim the edges and cut brownies into 2-inch squares.
