    1. Leave stems on peeled pears. Sprinkle with lemon juice to prevent browning. Set aside.
    2. In a saucepan large enough to accommodate 4 pears standing upright, combine water and sugar. Place over medium heat, and boil until sugar is dissolved. Stir in vanilla, then arrange the pears in the saucepan. Reduce heat, cover and simmer for 15 minutes. Allow to cool in liquid, then drain.
    3. In a bowl over simmering hot water, combine chocolate, cream and butter. Heat, stirring, until chocolate has melted and is smooth. Remove from heat and stir in coffee liqueur.
    4. Place pears on serving dish; pour chocolate sauce over pears.
