Kahlua and Tia Maria are pretty much the only coffee flavored liqueurs available, however you should be able to use a non-coffee flavored substitute and still get a good result. For example, Amaretto or Frangelico (hazelnut liqueur) should still work well - their flavors generally work with all the same things that coffee liqueur would complement. You can also use coffee essence together with brandy for the coffee alcohol flavour.
