Pork chops are seasoned with a simple coffee rub and cooked to perfection in your air fryer. This dish features rich, complex flavors that turn ordinary pork chops into extraordinary.


  • 2 pork chops (boneless or bone-in)
  • 1 tbs ground coffee
  • 2 tbs brown sugar
  • 1 tbs smoked paprika
  • 1 tbs chili powder
  • 2 tsp kosher salt
  • 1 tsp ground coriander
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/8 tsp cayenne (optional)
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil


  1. Preheat air fryer at 400°(F) for 5 minutes
  2. Mix all dry ingredients in a bowl or jar.
  3. Add olive oil to pork chops. Use just enough to lightly coat each side.
  4. Liberally add seasoning rub to pork chops. Get the sides too!
  5. Place seasoned pork chops into preheated air fryer basket or tray (middle position), and use air fry setting for 8-12 minutes. 8 minutes for thin chops (1/2″), 12 minutes for chops that are 1.25″ or thicker. Flip halfway through cooking time. Internal temperature should be 145°(F) when done.
  6. Carefully remove pork chops from air fryer and let rest on a plate for 5 minutes before serving.



The ingredients for the dry rub will make about 1/2 cup of the seasoning. Save remaining for additional pork chops or for use another day. Store in an airtight container.
