Lamb steaks and a coffee rub or sauce

I brought home a couple of lamb steaks from the market. My first thought was some sort of Greek thing, but as I ponder dinner my mind went to the delicious Ethiopian coffee I grabbed the other day. It is ground coarse (French press grind) and has some delicious berry and spice notes, so I thought it would make a really wonderful rub or sauce for the steaks. Does anyone have any ideas as to how I would accomplish this?

  1. I've never done it for lamb--but I coffee rub steaks all the time. I just use 2-3 tsps of coffee and mix it with about 1tsp of salt and some garlic and onion powder. Always goes well with beef. Not sure the coarse ground is preferable, but it shouldn't be a big issue..
