I have had this Coffee Chili Rub recipe for quite some time and was waiting for the perfect time to share it with you all. Well I finally figured out the right time when I was sent some Infinity Jars. This rub was one of my favorite recipes but I was struggling with the aspect of shelf life and storage. I was noticing that the blend was not staying fresh long enough for us to use it all.
We are kind of coffee addicts in this house. We have a million different ways to brew it and a super nice grinder and we are basically one of those weird coffee people. My concern with this recipe was that the flavor of the ground coffee would be compromised after just a day or two. Well this is where the Infinity Jar comes in. Infinity Jars are not only super classy looking but they are designed to keep things fresh longer.
I made this coffee rub several weeks ago and it still smells and tastes like I made it yesterday. I love being able to make different flavored rubs and oil infusions and know that they are not going to go bad before I can use it all.
I have several different style jars so I am sure you will see more posts on the blog as I use them. They really are a great option though for proper storage of food. They are especially great jars if it is something that is really sensitive to light or odors.
- 3 Tbsp ground coffee, medium grind
- 2 tsp cocoa powder
- 1 Tbsp granulated garlic
- 1 Tbsp smoked paprika
- 1 Tbsp chili powder
- 1 Tbsp coconut sugar
- 2 tsp salt (I prefer pink Himalayan)
- 2 tsp oregano
- Combine all the ingredients in a bowl and then pour in to a jar. I used this this infinity jar> so the rub will stay fresh longer
