In a small bowl, combine 1/4 cup warm water with agar-agar flakes and set aside for 20 minutes. Transfer to a blender and puree with remaining water. Transfer to a saucepan and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to a simmer and cook, stirring often, until agar has dissolved completely, about 5 minutes. Add espresso and stir until dissolved. Transfer mixture back to the blender and add tofu, maple syrup, cocoa powder, vanilla and salt. Puree until completely smooth. Pour into the pie shell and chill for at least 8 hours or overnight, until firm.
