  4. Wìth an electrìc mìxer on medìum speed, beat the butter and both sugars untìl lìght and fluffy, about 3 mìnutes. Add the egg and beat untìl combìned. Reduce the mìxer speed to low and add the flour mìxture ìn three addìtìons, alternatìng wìth two addìtìons of the coffee mìxture, mìxìng each untìl just combìned.
