    Great on steak, pork, chicken/turkey. I am down to 4 rubs. That, Butt Rub, Julio's, Pineapple Head and Jubilee by Bad Byron's for seafood. Ok, 5 rubs.

  • Not my favourite on pork, but for everything else Mickey's rub has been a "fixture" since I saw his he post last year. Really good on chicken and turkey. 

    For the espresso grind, I use my burr grinder on the finest setting, then give the grounds a spin in the small coffee/spice grinder to turn it into almost dust. Thanks to Mickey's coffee rub, tried ancho powder for the first time.

    If you grind your own beans, I would recomend storing the rub sans coffee and then grind just enough coffee beans for each use. Ground coffee goes stale   in a very short time after grinding. Fresh ground is the way to go.

  • I just got the coffee at cm. I'm headed to penzys to get the rest
    Be careful, man! I've got a beverage here.

  • $50 at penzeys. Don't ever go there if you don't want to spend your money.

    If you get on their mail order catalogue, each month there is a new spice sampler coupon on the front cover.  All they ask is you buy something worth $3+.  There is one an hour from me in Winterpark Fl and last week spent $19 but got 2 free samples, 'cause had 2 coupons.  Went over there for lunch so the gas was covered.

    +1, very true. I think just about everything has a bit more punch if it is fresh, but most of us can't or don't do that, convenience comes first. Most mole rubs and coffee rubs will keep for some time if you keep them sealed. I bet Mickey has the instant espresso around for some time before he uses it all up.

  • This stuff is incredible. I'd never tasted anything like it until I brined a turkey and put this rub on. To this day, the best thing I've ever eaten. The ancho chili powder/coffee combo sounded so foreign to me, but man...what a home run. I love it on pork chops, and steak. I'll have to try brisket next.

    There's no issue with the sugar burning during the sear when used on a steak?

  • We need to come up with a more catchy name for it. Mickeys coffee rub sounds dumb.

    Maybe Jose's java dust?

    I do not like coffee. Does it have a coffee taste after it's cooked?
