In a large saucepan, combine cocoa, 1/4 cup of sugar, and cornstarch. Stir in milk and coffee. Mix well. Cook over medium heat, whisking until cocoa mixture is smooth and boils, about 5 minutes. Boil cocoa mixture without stirring for 1 minute. Remove from heat. Let stand until just cool.
Preheat oven to 350F. Spray eight 1 cup ramekins with cooking spray. In a large mixing bowl, using an electric mixer on high speed, beat egg whites and cream of tarter until foamy. Gradually add remaining sugar and salt; beat until stiff, but not dry, peaks form.
Transfer cocoa mixture to a large bowl. Fold in 1 cup of beaten egg whites; fold in remaining egg whites and grated chocolate. Spoon into prepared ramekins and smooth tops.
Bake soufflés until tops are puffed and firm, but centers are still soft, about 25 minutes. Dust with confectioners sugar. Serve immediately.
