Caffeinate Your Late-Season Tailgate: Espresso BBQ Sauce

Allegiances to regional barbecue tastes and traditions can rival the loyalty of even the most dedicated football fan. (No, we’re not picking sides.)

The Collective Coffee Company’s espresso barbecue sliders are a little bit tangy, a little bit sweet, and a little something extra. That little something extra is espresso, which imparts an earthiness and warm cocoa notes that makes whatever meat you’re using taste, well, meatier.

This BBQ sauce inspires creativity. Coat your wings, dip your chicken fingers, slather those burgers, and if you dare, even top a pulled barbecue sandwich.

You can blame it on The Collective Coffee Company if anyone objects.
