Slowly fry ham slices on both sides, in a cast iron skillet until lightly browned on each side. Transfer the slices to a heated plate.
Add coffee to the skillet and, over high heat, boil it down, scraping the deglazings on the
the bottom of the skillet with a wooden spoon.
Reduce the liquid to almost a glaze and spoon over ham slices. Serve with something mild and traditional like boiled rice or grits.
