We are always at Team Coffee. After all, coffee is life. So why not add to everything† Coffee brings out all the best in our favorite chocolate recipes, but also adds bold flavor and tenderness to savory meat dishes.
Whichever recipe you choose, you’ll need enough of your favorite coffee beans to serve as a flavorful base. Want to upgrade your coffee brewing even more? Check out our picks for the best coffee makers, French presses and even milk frothers. You can make perfect lattes in no time.
You may be wondering: Can I use espresso? Absolutely, although it gives much more intensity than using regular coffee drops. What is the difference between espresso and coffee? They are subtle, but usually come down to the strength of the drink and how it is served. Espresso is made from beans that are grown, processed and roasted like other coffee beans, but the final product is stronger, thicker and more caffeine-containing than classic infusion coffee. Espresso is perfect for making latte drinks, and yes, espresso martinis and espresso cookies.
It may seem like a leap of faith to add coffee to your steak and chicken, but once you do, you’re changed forever. Brewed coffee and ground coffee are our secret weapons for adding a subtle earthy, charred flavor to our favorite roast meats, while also making them more tender. Ground coffee is also an incredible addition to a rib rub. Need more proof? Try our coffee rubbed steak with coffee bourbon sauce and coffee marinated BBQ chicken tacos!
