I have been trying out different recipes using coffe rubs.  I just cannot seem to find a fish that it melds well with the flavor and pork has a lighter flavor that is hidden by the rub.  I have come to the opinion that it is best when used with beef and chicken in a varity of ways.  (Yes chicken also has a lighter flavor but it does not seem to absorb much of the coffee rubs taste, resulting in a nice outside crust flavor instead.)  These coffee rub burgers were one of my first experiments and Zo really loved them.  Enjoy!

Coffee rub patties
1/2 lb ground chuck
1/2 lb ground sirloin

2 tsp coffee rub mix
2 tsp fresh cilantro (diced)
1 green onion (diced)

4 slices apple wood smoked bacon (crisped, cut in half)
4 slices Colby cheddar
1/4 cup Raspberry chipotle salsa
4 potato buns

4 slices red onion
20 pickled jalapeno sliced

Burger Patties
Mix all burger patty ingredients together in a medium bowl and let site for 10 minutes.

Preheat grill to medium.

Separate patty mixture into 4 servings and form 1/4 inch patty by rolling each serving into a ball and then pressing flat. Place patties on heated grill and cook 3-4 minutes on each side or until desired doneness is reached. During the last 2 minutes of cooking dollop each burger patty with 1 tbsp of salsa and then place a slice of cheese over the salsa.  (If you want your buns toasted I suggest also adding them to grill for the last 2 minutes of cooking.)

Place burger patty on bun and top with bacon, onion and jalapenos.  Finish up by placing top bun on burger and (add other tops if desired) enjoy!
