Remove steaks from refrigerator. In a small bowl, mix Morton Kosher Salt, celery salt, onion powder, garlic powder, turmeric, pepper, paprika, cayenne, sugar and coffee.
Brush steaks with 1 tablespoon olive oil then rub the mixture onto the steaks. Allow to sit at room temperature for one hour before cooking.
Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Heat a cast-iron skillet over high heat, place the remaining tablespoon of olive oil into the pan and immediately add steaks. Sear steaks for 2 to 3 minutes on each side, both sides should have a dark caramelized sear.
Place the steaks in the oven to finish cooking. Check them after two minutes and take them out when they have achieved desired temperature of doneness. (For a medium steak, remove them at 135 degrees Fahrenheit.) Set steaks aside for 5 minutes to rest, season with Morton Coarse Sea Salt, then serve.
