Panfry the bones, onions, garlic, cumin, cardamom, cinnamon and bay leaves 10 minutes until golden brown. Add coffee infused chilies, salt and pepper and roast it all together for a couple of minutes. Then sear the meat and spices in the hot pan. Finally add tomatoes, coffee and sugar or syrup and let simmer for 2 more hours. 30 Minutes before serving add the diced paprika. Garnish with roasted pretzel chips, sour cream and a splash of Dr. Sours Bitters #2.
