Combine chocolate wafer crumbs, butter, sugar and cinnamon. Mix well. Press mixture into buttered springform pan. Set aside.


Beat cream cheese until smooth. Gradually add sugar, mixing until well blended. Add eggs, one at a time. Beat at low speed until very smooth. Melt chocolate with cream over boiling water, stir until smooth. Blend well with cheese mixture. Add sour cream, salt, coffee liqueur and vanilla; beat until smooth. Turn into pan.
