Place espresso powder and 1/2 cup sugar in a heatproof bowl. Pour boiling water into bowl and whisk to dissolve. Let cool to room temperature.

Combine cream cheese, vanilla and remaining 1/4 cup of sugar in a large bowl and beat with an electric mixer until smooth.
In another large bowl, beat heavy cream until it holds stiff peaks. Gently fold cream cheese mixture into whipped cream.
