Preheat oven to 350 °F (180 °C). Butter a 9-inch (23 cm) springform pan.
In a medium bowl stir together instant coffee, brown sugar, flour and ground cinnamon. Cut in butter until crumbly and stir in chocolate chips and pecans.
In a large bowl beat together butter and sugar until light. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well until smooth. Beat in sour cream. Dissolve instant coffee in the warm water and beat into egg mixture.
In a small bowl, stir together remaining dry ingredients. Gradually stir into the creamed mixture. On low speed, begin with 1/3 of the dry mixture then half of the milk. Alternate, beating well after each addition and ending with the flour mixture.
Spread 1/2 of the batter into prepared pan and sprinkle with 1 1/2 cups (375 mL) of the crumb topping. Cover with remaining batter and sprinkle with remaining crumb topping.
Bake for 60 to 65 min or until a toothpick inserted into the centre comes out clean. If top begins to brown too quickly, loosely cover with foil.
