Bitterman's Espresso Salt

Size: Taster - Cork Jar

As seen in Food & Wine! Clean Bars by Chris Cosentino

We make our coffee salt with fresh roasted Oregon coffee because we respect their commitment to quality and to sustainability. Furthermore, this espresso is flat out amazing! The coffee grinds epitomizes the comfort and complexity of good espresso, a flavor trapeze act of chocolate, burnt caramel, butterscotch, and coffee. We add a kiss of natural vanilla to the mix, along with a little small-batch cocoa powder to really set it off.

What should you try it on?A better question is, what shouldn't you NOT try it on? We sprinkle it on steaks, on grilled lettuce salads, on charred octopus, roasted root vegetables with thyme and oranges. Its fantastic on panna cotta, yellow cake with buttercream frosting, macaroons, and in salted caramel and caramel sauces! It is killer on the rim of a cocktail: manhattans, rusty nails, and our favorite drink of all this time of year, mezcal negronis. Or try it on our newest indulgence, on the rim of a chocolate malted milkshake!

    Ingredients: Coffee grinds, sea salt, vanilla, cocoa powder

    Made in Portland, Oregon!

    Salted espresso. Yes please

    Pinch of this in your coffee enhances the flavor and cuts any bitterness. I normally added a pinch of salt to coffee and this is even better. This stuff is also fantastic with cheese and on steaks.

    Tried others, but this is THE BEST

    So good. Great on steak and vegetables, but my favorite way to use this is to sprinkle it on brownies before they bake. Unbelievable. If you use a mix, use coffee instead of water -- you will be in heaven.

    Surprisingly good!

    Wasn’t sure what to expect with this one but it’s really good. Just the right amount of espresso taste. Perfect on some dark chocolate brownies.

    Excellent on top of my cold brew

    I had bought this precisely because I wanted to put it on top of my cold brew and it definitely added a lot of flavor. I use it a couple of times a week and will definitely buy again.
