What a great way to prepare a steak! I was worried that the flavor of the steak itself would be lost in the coffee rub, but the opposite was true- though the coffee flavor was definitely there, the rub w/ the balsamic/coffee vinaigrette really brought out the steak's own flavors, too. I served this w/ roasted broccoli w/ pine nuts and parmesean and a lemon risotto, and it was a hit. The only thing that I changed was that instead of mashing the garlic into the vinaigrette, I just finely chopped it all and added it to the rub. Fantastic, and a definite favorite!
