2 tsps is MUCH better! Go with that. 1 tbsp is just 3 tsp so not too different. I like 2 tsps though, good thought.

Add most of the spices when your browning the meat. When the chili is simmering, skim off the foamy crud on the surface into a coffee mug and trash it.

Wooden cutting board covered with waxed paper and a mallet or the back of a very tough spoon.

Gross. Yes it would. LOL, your coffee is going to be funky though. Your chili will have a nice flavor from the coffee residue though.
