I tried this in the crock pot and wasn't happy with it at all. My husband, who loves pot roast AND coffee, said that if I didn't make it again, he'd be okay with that. I thought it gave the beef a "corn beef" kind of flavor (if you didn't know that it was cooked in coffee). When you DID know it was cooked in coffee, the coffee flavor was very evident. I tasted the broth and decided that it wasn't worth making into the gravy - it was kind of bitter and had a very strong flavor. I've giving the recipe two stars because I was out of real garlic, so I had to use garlic powder. Perhaps that would have made the difference - so I'm giving it the benefit of the doubt.
