Line a standard-size muffin tin with paper liners.
Make the Cupcakes: In a measuring cup, whisk the espresso powder into the brewed coffee until completely dissolved. Add the milk and vanilla extract; set aside.
In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
With an electric mixer on medium speed, beat the butter and both sugars until light and fluffy, for about 3 minutes. Add the egg and beat until combined. Reduce the mixer speed to low and add the flour mixture in three additions, alternating with two additions of the coffee mixture, mixing each until just combined. Using a rubber spatula, give the batter a final stir to ensure everything is incorporated.
Fill each muffin cup about two-thirds full with batter. Bake for 17 to 20 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the centre of a cupcake comes out clean. Cool completely before frosting the cupcakes.
