  • Rinse soaked beans and place in large pan with enough fresh water to cover.
  • Cook, covered, over medium heat for one hour or until tender.
  • While beans cook, sauté bacon in a skillet until lightly browned, remove and set aside, then lightly sauté the chopped onions in the remaining bacon fat until translucent. Remove onions and set aside.
  • In a saucepan, combine maple syrup, molasses, pepper, mustard, ketchup, tomato paste, brown sugar, Tabasco, the orange juice, the pineapple juice, the coffee and the stock. Cook over medium heat for 1 hour, stirring occasionally.
  • Combine beans, sauce, onions and bacon in a crock pot. There should be enough liquid to cover the beans generously. If not, add some more stock, or combination of juices.
  • Cook at low for 12 hours, at high for 8.
  • Taste for seasoning near the end of the cooking time and add salt if needed.
