  1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C).
  2. Combine graham cracker crumbs, melted butter, and sugar in a bowl. Press over the bottom and 1 inch up the sides of a 9-inch springform pan.
  3. Bake crust in the preheated oven until set, about 7 minutes. Remove from the oven and let cool while making the filling.
  4. Beat cream cheese with an electric mixer until smooth. Add sugar, eggs, Irish cream, and vanilla extract to the cream cheese, beating well after adding each ingredient. Do not overbeat.

  7. Beat whipping cream with an electric mixer until soft peaks form. Add sugar and coffee granules. Continue beating until cream is firm enough to hold its shape. Spread over cooled cheesecake.
