  1. Preheat oven to 375°F.
  2. Combine brewed coffee with brown sugar to dissolve. Arrange bacon slices on sheet tray (with wire rack if possible) and brush with coffee–brown sugar mixture. Sprinkle bacon with ground coffee and black pepper. Bake for 12-15 minutes. (Check after 10 minutes, as all ovens cook differently.)
