Cooking the meat in the slow cooker with coffee and garlic is a good way to get a tender beef roast but it does NOT impart any flavor, and making the gravy according to the recipe will leave you will completely tasteless sauce.
I used several teaspoons of minced garlic, a cup of coffee, black pepper, and onion powder on a 2.5 pound chuck roast. The meat came out nicely but the gravy had little more flavor than water. Next time I will add more spice to the beef, and a LOT more spice (salt, worchestershire, pepper) to the gravy.
A good starter recipe but not great as written.
