In a small bowl mix the coffee, brown sugar, paprika, chile powder, garlic powder and onion powder.
Season the pork chops with salt & pepper, then cover with ground coffee mixture.
Preheat oven to 450°. Heat oil over medium-high heat in a large oven-proof skillet. Cook pork chops until beginning to brown, 3-4 minutes. Turn and cook until second side is beginning to brown, about 2 minutes. Keep turning chop every 2 minutes until both sides are deep golden brown, 10-12 minutes total.
Transfer skillet to oven and roast chops, about 15 minutes, turning every 2 minutes to prevent them from browning too quickly, until an instant-read thermometer inserted horizontally into center of meat registers 135°. The pork chop will continue to cook when it's resting.
