In our ongoing search for seasoning blends and dry spice rubs that are not your ordinary fare we have come across a delicious Espresso rub. The deep richness of coffee combined with the brown sugar provides an ideal caramelized crust on your steak. This crust helps hold in the natural flavors and juices so that the steak doesn't dry out prematurely.

We also love the savory taste sensation of this Mexican inspired rub as in addition to the unexpected flavor of coffee you get the fruity heat of the ancho, the sweetness of the brown sugar and for just a dash more heat we also added some De Arbol Chile. Now while we are big promoters of salt free seasonings we also know that the best spice rubs have their flavors further enhanced with just a bit of salt.

As we do with all rubs we like to shake our seasonings onto our meat and then work it into the meat evenly on both sides and then refrigerate before cooking. Now typically we like to have the seasonings sit for at least 1-2 hours but we found with the espresso rub it is better to only have it sit for 30 minutes to an hour before cooking. Now while we love this seasoning best on a good steak (i.e. T-Bone or Porterhouse) we also enjoyed it on bolder fish like tuna and swordfish.

Hand blended from ancho chile powder, brown sugar, paprika, ground sumatra (fresh dark roasted coffee), sea salt, black pepper, yellow mustard, coriander, ginger, de arbol chile powder and Mexican oregano.

Another word about the coffee we use in this blend. We've tested and tweaked our Espresso blend over the years before discovering the Sumatra Mendeling blend sourced from one of our favorite local coffee roasters. 
We carry a growing selection of dry rubs and seasonings and if you are looking specifically for more steak seasonings these are some of our most popular - Fajita Seasoning, Steak Rub, Salt Free Steak SeasoningPrime Rib Seasoning and Kansas City Steak Rub.

GREAT PRODUCT This espresso rub is a blend with great flavor, and is an easy way to add a kick to any recipe made with pork, beef, etc. I smoked a pork butt for my mother and I for Christmas dinner and the espresso rub was a great addition to my normal dry rub I put on my pork at least 2 days before smoking. I will purchase again, and you can't beat the price!!!
