Recipe: Coffee BBQ Rub


Coffee BBQ Rub:

Coffee brings a deep & earthy taste to this rub - enhancing the spice and sweetness from the other ingredients. We recommend using one of our Dark Roasts or our Espresso for the rub.

  • 2 tablespoons ancho chile powder
  • 2 tablespoons finely ground dark or espresso roast coffee
  • 5 teaspoons dark brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon hot smoked paprika
  • 1½ teaspoons dried oregano
  • 1½ teaspoons freshly ground black pepper
  • 1½ teaspoons ground coriander
  • 1½ teaspoons mustard powder
  • 1 teaspoon chile de árbol powder or ¾ teaspoon finely ground red pepper flakes
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1 tablespoon kosher salt

Just mix all ingredients and rub on a steak, ribs, porkchops, or chicken, and let sit for a few hours or overnight.

We recommend either grilling, or searing meats on a pan and finishing in the oven.
