- In a large heavy-bottomed pot or dutch oven, heat olive oil over medium heat. Season stew meat with salt and pepper, brown on all sides and remove to a plate and set aside.
- To the pot add the garlic, leek, and onion to the skillet and cook until soft; about 3-5 minutes. De-glaze the pan with the brewed coffee. Add remaining ingredients to the pot and return beef back to the pot with any accumulated juices on the plate. Bring to a boil and reduce heat to simmer for 3 hours on low. Watching to make sure there is plenty of liquid, add beef stock if needed. Taste for salt and pepper and adjust as needed.
- Serve chili with garnishes such as cilantro, chopped onion, shredded cheese, avocado or sour cream.
