Café Jerusalem King David’s Espresso is perfectly-roasted coffee for those of you who like a strong and satisfying cup of espresso or Turkish coffee. No bitter aftertaste, only full-bodied, well-rounded flavor. 100% star-k, kosher coffee.
But did you know that you can also cook with it? Espresso rubs partner well with strong flavored cuts of meats, such as beef or pork. The espresso adds a smoky flavor and a nicely colored crust to the surface of the food. Espresso rubs are most often applied to grilled meats.
