Broiled Spicy Steaks

Most spice producers make at least one commercial spice rub for beef. But you won't find our flavor combination anywhere on grocery store shelves. Mixing a bit of coffee into the rub creates a rich, aromatic flavor. Get the Broiled Spicy Steaks recipe.

Broiled Java Turkey

Boneless, skinless turkey breast halves are readily available in most supermarket meat departments. Often labeled "turkey London broil," they make a great canvas to paint with flavor. Brewed coffee creates a hearty marinade here that imparts tons of flavor in a short time. Get the Broiled Java Turkey recipe.

Seattle Chiffon Cake

Chiffon cakes tend to feature delicate aromas such as lemon. This cake takes a different route to flavor with rich-tasting cocoa powder, cinnamon, and brewed espresso. Walnut oil gives the cake a delightfully nutty quality, but you could also use extra-light olive oil or canola oil. Get the Seattle Chiffon Cake recipe.
