  1. Preheat slow cooker to low (or preheat oven to 350F).
  2. Using a sharp knife, pierce 5-6 deep slits in roast. Push a garlic clove into each hole. Place the roast in the slow cooker (or in a roasting pan) and pour coffee over meat.
  3. Cook on low 6-8 hrs (or bake in oven 2-3 hours).
  4. Remove beef to a serving plate, tent with foil and let rest. Meanwhile, pour drippings into a small saucepan over medium-low heat. Whisk cornstarch and water together. When drippings are simmering, slowly add cornstarch slurry, whisking constantly. Stop when desired constituency is reached. Slice meat and serve with gravy.
