Coffee Rub

After a visit to the farmers market, our friends Misha and Michael whipped up this incredible dish. The meat is a Buffalo tri tip and the rub/marinade was made with the following:
Victrola Guatemala Hue Hue Tenango Finca Vista Hermosa, bay leaf, cayenne, rosemary, earl grey tea, thyme, coarse salt, pepper and a few other secret ingredients. Coffee makes a wonderful base for meat rubs. Some other spices to add to coffee to make a great rub include star anise, chipotle pepper, cardamom & corriander.
