This works, but it's a bit fiddly, but it's good if you have guests or something.

Melt some coconut oil, add a couple of spoonfuls of cocoa powder and mix to a smooth paste. Add sweetener to taste.

Dip in some coffee beans. French or rich roast is best, you want them strong and crunchy. Take out, one at a time, and put on a silicon mat or greaseproof paper. Freeze.

20 minutes later, coat them again. Freeze.

Repeat.

By now they should have enough chocolate on them to look good and not be overpoweringly coffee-ish.

It really is better to do them one at a time. I tried doing a lot at once, and ended up with a horrible mess.
