Delicious! The aroma while this was cooking made our mouths water. We enjoyed a lovely roast dinner with a very tasty gravy to boot! So easy to make, the herbs and the coffee added gave the gravy a unique flavour. Thanks for posting.

Love the way this turned out! My family couldn't guess there was black coffee in it! I sliced the roast and poured the gravy over it. At 55 I'm still learning!

I made this per the instructions, with only one exception: I used ONLY the roast juices to mix with flour in a separate bowl, then re-added it to the roast. One word: Delicious! I make this dish at least every 2 weeks - if not every week. My husband LOVES it! We had my Mother-in-Law over for the weekend and she raved about it, too. Thanks! Laurie Pearson

This smelled divine while cooking and tasted just like it smelled. Of course, I did "lump" the gravy instead of thickening it . A lesson to me to pay more attention.

I love this recipe!!! The only thing I do different is not use bullion, instead I use Aujus mix (my preference is Farmers Brothers) but I'm sure any pakaged mix would work great. It is less salty and more beefy flavored. I reserve some of the pan dripping to dip each bite of meat in and the rest I use to make gravy. It can't get any better than this......YUMMY!!

I had seasoned my rump roast with some pepper and seasoning salt while browning. I also chose to go with using the crockpot because I wanted it ready when I got home. So I cooked it on high for one hour then lowered it to low for 6 hours. The flavor was really great tasting. Was going to have it with mashed potatoes but realized I didnt have any more, so just had some veggies. Next time I think I would like to try it on the stove instead. Thanks for sharing your recipe CharlotteJ

This was very good, although the rosemary was a little overpowering for me. My family liked it, especially the gravy. It was a very easy recipe to make and I cooked it on a very busy day, so I just set the timer and left it alone.

Excellent, the beef was fork tender, and the gravy turned out great!
