Crust: In a mixing bowl cream the butter, brown sugar, flour, and ground coffee together. Process until mixture is evenly fine textured. Add the nuts. In a separate bowl, combine the vanilla and coffee liquids together, then add them to the nut mixture. Process only until mixed, do not overprocess. Turn mixture into 9-inch pie plate, spread, and press evenly and lightly over the bottom and sides. Filling: Arrange apple slices around the edge of the crust-covered pan. Chop some pieces into cubes for the center. In a small bowl, combine the brown sugar, flour, nutmeg, cinnamon, cloves, and coffee, and pour over the apples. Dot the butter over the top. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
Bake for 10 minutes, and then reduce the oven temperature to 350 F. Bake 15 minutes more, until the apple begins to bubble. Place puddle of sauce in plate and set torte slice on top of sauce and serve.
Combine sauce ingredients in a microwave-safe bowl and microwave for 3 minutes. Stir until smooth and chill.
